Prescription Error / Pharmacy Error / Medication Error

Errors by medical providers relating to the prescribing of medication or filling of prescriptions occur far too often and can lead to life-altering injuries or even death.  Medical malpractice occurs when the medical professional falls short of the standard of care in the provision of medical services, including the prescribing and filling of medication.  Errors by a doctor can include prescribing the wrong medication, prescribing medications that are contraindicated, disregarding allergies, or prescribing the wrong dosage.  Errors by the pharmacy can include filling the wrong medication, filling the wrong dosage, or providing the wrong directions on the label.  It is important to retain counsel who are experienced with industry standards and pharmacy management software to maximize value in prescription error cases.  If you have been a victim of a medication error, contact us to discuss the legal options available to you.
