Medical Malpractice Cases Resulting from Medication-Pharmaceutical Errors
Each and every day many of us rely on medications to treat a wide variety of illnesses from common viruses to complex cancers. The number of people who will be relying on medications will only be increasing as the number of Americans who are going into retirement age increases. As a result, the number of injuries and deaths for medication and pharmaceutical errors will increase. The two primary causes of injury or death relating to medication errors come from giving the wrong medication and giving the wrong amount of medication. When these errors are the result of a doctor’s or other healthcare provider’s negligence, then they may be held liable in medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice lawsuits relating to medication errors are most often the result of one of the following:
- Reactions to medications due to physician known patient allergies
- Giving a patient the wrong dose or wrong type
- Errors in the filling of medication prescriptions
- Incorrect labels or warnings on medications
- Failure to warn patients on the adverse side effects of a medication
