Were You Injured By A Medication Error?
Drugs are meant to alter the way the body functions. Physicians and other medical professionals prescribe specific drugs in specific doses in order to correct an impairment or disease, but sometimes a prescription error can cause severe complications and dangerous side effects.
At DeLuca & Associates, Ltd., our attorneys handle medical malpractice cases resulting in dangerous drug reactions from medication error. It is the job of physicians, pharmacists, and anesthesiologists to understand the harmful potential side effects of the drugs they use, prescribe and dispense.
Experienced Representation In A Wide Array Of Cases
Dangerous reactions to drugs prescribed by a health care professional can occur both at home and at hospitals. Nursing malpractice, anesthesia malpractice, and prescription mistakes can all cause greater harm than the good for which the drug was originally intended. A medication error could be the result of an allergic reaction, or perhaps the drug was meant for short-term use, but a physician or pharmacist failed to stop it, causing long-term problems such as:
- Anesthesia malpractice
- Pharmaceutical errors
- Failure to recognize pre-existing conditions
- Nursing malpractice
- Prescription mistakes
- Drug errors/mix-ups
Medication Errors Should Not Happen
Physician negligence and hospital negligence may result in the dispensing of incorrect medications, medications of the incorrect dose, or medications that interact with other prescribed medications. We can take action against negligent parties.
