Premier Criminal Defense & Personal Injury Legal Advocacy In Maryland
Skilled Representation For Serious Medication Errors
When a doctor prescribes medication to you, you probably trust that it is the correct treatment for your issue and that your pharmacist is giving you the correct amount. Unfortunately, due to understaffing and miscommunication, medication errors can occur.
If you received the wrong dose of your medicine or were given the wrong medication altogether, you could be facing a variety of unnecessary injuries. It is essential that you retain an attorney who will carefully investigate and determine who is liable, while helping you obtain the compensation you deserve. You could be entitled to money for medical expenses, ongoing treatment, lost earnings, and more — from the party who caused your injuries.

Types Of Prescription And Medication Errors
Prescription drugs have the power to alleviate pain and other symptoms and make crucial changes in the body that can literally save lives. If they are improperly administered or prescribed, however, a patient may be left with serious or even life-threatening injuries. Many medications look similar to one another or are so potent that even administering a small amount over the recommended dose could cause catastrophic problems. Doctors, nurses and pharmacists have an obligation to exercise due caution when prescribing and handling medications.
Our lawyers help patients across Maryland who have suffered from such types of negligence or wrongdoing as:
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Prescribing the wrong dose
- Prescribing a drug that interacts adversely with another medication the patient is taking
- Administering the wrong medication
- Administering too much or too little medication (wrong dosage)
- Pharmacist misreading a prescription slip
- Pharmacist failing to provide accurate and thorough instructions for taking medication at home
