Was Your Injury Caused by a Pharmaceutical Mistake?

  Alan Fuchsberg  |  December 16, 2015  |  

Millions of Americans rely on pharmaceutical medications each year. Whether these individuals are recovering from surgery, battling an illness or fighting to control a condition, they are reliant upon the care and professionalism of those prescribing and dispensing their medication. In these situations, a seemingly minor error can lead to a worsening condition or even death.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reported that medication errors account for at least one death every day and approximately 1.3 million injuries annually in the United States. These errors can occur at any point along the prescription-distribution cycle. Whether in prescribing the incorrect medication, dispensing the wrong medication or dispensing the right medication in the wrong dosage, pharmaceutical errors can have devastating consequences.

Common Pharmaceutical Errors

In an industry that is charged with maintaining the health and well-being of patients across the country, millions of errors can be attributed to simple negligence. From an anesthesiologist who fails to monitor the patient’s reaction to a drug to a manufacturing company that affixes the wrong label to life-saving medication, drug errors can be life-changing or even fatal.

Medical negligence cases can include:

  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesiology errors
  • Dosage errors
  • Failure to monitor the patient reaction
  • Failure to account for dangerous drug interactions
  • Incorrect packaging
  • Dispensing recalled medication

Depending on your situation, you might be entitled to recover monetary compensation from those accountable for these pharmaceutical errors. An experienced medical malpractice attorney can carefully examine your case and present thoughtful insight regarding the legal process. We invite you to contact our New York law office with any questions you may have pharmaceutical errors and negligence.
