Cleveland Medication Errors Attorneys

When you take a prescription drug or medication, you place trust in the company that manufactured it, the pharmacy that sold it, the doctor who prescribed it and sometimes the nurse or aide who administered it. When a medication error occurs somewhere along the line, that trust is broken. Even worse, serious injuries and even wrongful death may result.

If you or a loved one suffered harm because of a medication error, it is wise to seek professional legal advice right away. The Cleveland medication errors lawyers at Anderson Law Offices are available to answer all your questions about your legal rights and help you get to the bottom of the problem. With an impressive record of results, we are known for fighting diligently to obtain maximum financial compensation for our clients' losses.

Common Types of Medication Errors

Medication errors of various kinds affect thousands of people across the country. If you have experienced one of the following issues, you may potentially have the foundation to take legal action:

  • A doctor prescribes the wrong drug, the wrong dosage or a drug that will interact harmfully with other medications
  • A pharmacy dispenses the wrong medication or the wrong dose
  • A pharmaceutical company manufactures a dangerous drug or markets it to treat conditions not approved by the FDA
  • A medical professional administers the wrong drug, an accidental overdose or the right drug at the wrong time

What Causes Medication Errors?

Sadly, many medication errors occur which could have been easily prevented. They often happen due to:

  • Mistakes made in a patient's chart
  • Not paying attention to a patient's information, including known drug allergies
  • Insufficient or outdated warning labels on medications
  • Miscommunication between pharmacists, physicians and others
  • Confusion between drugs with similar names
  • Confusion of dosing units or decimal points
  • Distractions or haste
