We're experts in wrong medication cases.
Let's find you justice

When a medical professional prescribes you medication, you expect a high standard of care because it is their duty to be aware of a patient’s allergies and medical history.

Medication errors can occur due to the negligence of a doctor, nurse, or pharmacy. It can happen through miscommunications, carelessness, system errors and mislabeled drugs, which all could’ve been avoidable.

What you should know about wrong medication lawsuits

Can I sue a doctor who caused an injury as a result of a medication error?

Yes, but with caveats. Receiving a wrong medication or a wrong prescription alone can cause pain and suffering, but are not enough by themselves to sue a medical provider. In order to sue, there has to be serious, permanent, or catastrophic injury that the lawsuit is intended to remedy. Additionally, because the litigation is expensive for medical malpractice, it is important that the lawsuit itself is worth enough to cover the costs.

Can I sue for an allergic reaction?

In instances where a medication triggers an allergic response, it must be known whether the prescriber was supposed to be aware of the allergy on a medication list and prescribed or administered the medication anyway, or if they neglected to consider the victim’s known allergy when prescribing, since these occurrences are avoidable. Drug reactions to medications can happen unexpectedly, and prescribers cannot be held liable if an allergy was previously undiscovered in a patient. If you believe you are the victim of wrongful medical practice involving a medication error, it is essential that you consult an attorney as soon as possible to avoid any potential statutes of limitations from barring your claim. Submit a description of your cases here and one of our analysts will be in touch shortly to get you the right legal representation for your case.

What are the types of medication errors eligible for a lawsuit?

Some medication errors that could lead to a successful lawsuit are: drug overdoses, a prescriber prescribing a medication that the patient has a documented allergy to, discontinuing a medication prematurely, over prescribing multiple medications that have the same effects, a pharmacy providing the wrong medication, a pharmacy providing medications that are the wrong prescription strength, a pharmacy giving someone a medication intended for someone else, among others. The key for these to lead to a successful lawsuit is that these occurrences must lead to permanent, serious, catastrophic injury. If no serious injury occurred, it is suggested instead that a formal complaint be lodged with the prescriber.
