Question:

Can I receive compensation for medication errors?

Answer:

Medication ErrorsWe had a case where a client called inquiring about a potential matter involving a medication error. In this case, it was done by his physician. There are two sides of the same coin on medication errors — you can have pharmaceutical errors, and you can have a physician that writes a prescription that is maybe contraindicated with another drug, or the wrong dosage. That is a medical malpractice claim. In those claims, we get the physician’s records. We get the chart. We get the labeling by the product to see what the correct dosage was. We see if there’s any black box warning put out by the FDA that warns the physicians that the drug needs to be used in an intended and specific manner, and that’s how we look at those types of medical malpractice cases involving physicians and medication errors.
