Drug and Prescription Errors
Medical and prescription errors can cause illness, injury and even death.
In the event of medical malpractice, Stuart & Branigin will help you seek compensation for accrued expenses.
Drug or prescription errors occur when a pharmacist, nurse, physician, or other healthcare provider makes a mistake or dispenses the wrong medication to a patient. These errors can occur due to a misdiagnosis, illegible handwriting or a failure to review medical history.
Drug or prescription errors can lead to injury, disability, hospitalization or — in rare cases — death. Medical negligence can result in serious consequences for an individual and his or her family. A personal injury case can assist in seeking compensation for damages. This may include medical expenses, lost wages from work, emotional trauma or other accrued expenses.
Individuals have the right to expect proper medication and diagnoses from healthcare professionals. If you believe you’ve experienced a drug or prescription error, our Personal Injury lawyers at Stuart & Branigin are prepared to evaluate the full extent of your case and provide appropriate counsel.
