Medication errors often occur because of negligence or a mistake or a health care provider. Doctors, pharmacists, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmaceutical companies, and hospitals could each potentially be held liable for medication errors.
Medication errors can be had to detect, but when the truth is revealed and the damage is done, those injured need to know that there is a place to turn for help. Shegerian & Associates has a team of personal injury attorneys skilled in this area of medical malpractice law dealing with medication errors and can help those affected find the best legal remedies available to them. The injuries that result are sometimes so severe that they come to be fatal. Organ damage is one signal of, particularly debilitating medical errors. One of the most commonplace signs, however, is an allergic reaction to medication that has been mistakenly administered or administered with the incorrect dosage levels. Many health care workers are educated to administer the 5 ‘rights’ when giving medication to patients. These consist of the right management time, the right administration route, the proper patient, the proper dosage, and the right medication. Failure in any individual of these ‘rights’ should bring about legal responsibility for medication errors.
Medication errors cause injuries to more than 1 million people annually in the United States. Yet, determining that a party to a medication error case is liable for medical malpractice is not always easy. Often the testimony of several expert witnesses is needed to prove that the damage done would not have occurred if there was no medication error.
Such cases can be complex and need the experienced and strategic knowledge of a well-qualified personal injury attorney to guide them. A Shegerian & Associates attorney can assist with gathering the necessary evidence for a medication error claim as well as pinpointing the appropriate laws and legal remedies for such cases.
When you suspect that a medication error is the cause of a debilitating condition, it’s important to discuss it with your doctor or healthcare provider. It may also be wise to seek legal representation. Doing so as early on in the development of a case could prove essential as there are strict time limits for filing medication error suits.
