Prescription Drug Errors
Prescription drug errors by doctors and pharmacists can lead to serious injury or death, especially among older patients who may take several medications. When an error causes a serious injury to a veteran or his or her family member, the civil justice system may provide a way to hold the medical provider accountable.
The Berry Law Firm represents veterans of every branch of the U.S. armed forces, including the National Guard and the Reserves, in cases of prescription drug errors. Contact us for a free initial consultation.
Types of Medication Errors
Communication mistakes can have devastating consequences when prescribing drugs or filling drug prescriptions. Examples of errors that may lead to a case of malpractice against a doctor or pharmacists include:
- Giving a patient the wrong medicine
- Giving a patient the wrong dose of a medicine
- Failure to warn a patient about drug side effects
- Dispensing drugs that should not be taken with a patient's existing medication
