Prescription/Medication Errors

Every piece of information that goes along with prescription drugs outlines the uses and potential side effects of taking medication. These warnings are necessary because prescriptions carry as many risks as they do benefits. No one knows this better than individuals who have suffered because of prescription or medication errors.

Recovering When Your Doctor Or Pharmacist Made A Mistake

As a patient, you should be able to trust that doctors, physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other caregivers are using extreme caution when writing or administering prescriptions. Unfortunately, these people make mistakes just like anyone else. If their mistakes have caused an injury or illness to you or a loved one, contact us at Hartelius, Durocher & Winter, PC.

We can help you in cases of:

  • Failure to identify hazards of drug interactions
  • Failure to consult a patient on prescription use and hazards
  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Administering the wrong medication or wrong dosage

Some errors are caused by an individual's negligence. Others may be indicative of a larger issue at a hospital or clinic. Understaffing of nurses can leave people overworked. Incomplete medication processes that do not have multiple checkpoints for catching errors can result in a greater number of problems. Even something as simple as not adequately training a health care professional can play a role in the injury you have suffered.

We know how to thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case, from the medical assessments you received to the way those assessments were used in determining your prescription. We will pursue maximum compensation through every avenue possible to make sure you get what you need to recover.
