Strong Advocacy For People Injured By Medication Errors

What Type Of Medication Error Injured You?
Doctor and nursing negligence is the cause of many medication errors in Missouri and Illinois, and by pursuing claims of medical malpractice against those responsible, patient safety may be improved in the future while providing for the needs of those who have already been injured. Common medication errors include:
- Prescription mistakes
- Complications linked to potentially dangerous medications
- Dosage errors
- Adverse reactions and side effects
- Dispensing errors
- Labeling errors
- Wrong medications
- Drug interactions
- Automated dispensing system errors
Medication errors can result in serious consequences and adverse reactions that can lead to long-term and fatal injuries. Obtaining compensation is important not only to pay for medical treatment, lost wages and other expenses but also to provide a sense of justice and closure for victims and their families.
Did Your Doctor Ignore Warnings?
Every year, the federal Food and Drug Administration issues warnings or recalls medication because of unforeseen side effects that can cause serious injury or death. In many cases, the drug manufacturer faces liability for damages. However, a prescribing physician may also be held liable if it can be determined that the doctor acted negligently regarding side effects or possible medical problems due to your condition or other medications you may already be taking.
