Representing The Victims Of Medication Errors
As patients, we place a great deal of trust in our doctors to prescribe the right medication and our pharmacists to correctly fill those orders or raise important objections. This is because an error somewhere in the process can have grave consequences.
When health care providers fail to live up to their obligations, our lawyers at Carter Craig, Attorneys at Law, can protect your rights and interests. Our firm has been serving Danville, Virginia, and the surrounding region, including in northern North Carolina, for more than 60 years. We can determine if you are the victim of medical malpractice and help you seek the compensation you deserve for any unnecessary damages.
Doctors, nurses, pharmacists and almost any health care provider can make medication errors. These can include:
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Filling the wrong prescription
- Administering medication to the wrong patient
- Prescribing too much medication, causing an overdose
- Prescribing too little medication, resulting in a worsening condition
- Failing to consider a patient’s existing medication and any interaction issues
- Not considering side effects on a patient
Just like a misdiagnosis, taking the wrong medication or in the wrong amounts can make an existing condition much worse, and it can also lead to unnecessary treatments if the wrong medication causes a serious reaction. This can lead to thousands in medical bills and significant time missed from work.
