Today’s medications are more potent and refined than ever, effectively targeting and treating many diseases and conditions. Unfortunately, when they are not prescribed or administered correctly, they can cause serious harm and fatalities.
Prescription errors may arise from medical malpractice or hospital negligence. In most cases, either the wrong medication is given to a patient or the wrong dose of the right medication is administered. Injured patients and their families can bring a claim against responsible health care providers — and be awarded compensation for their damages and losses — when medication errors cause them harm.
