Medication Errors Can Cause Serious Injuries
When you receive medical treatment in a clinic or at a hospital, you should be able to trust the medication and dosage the nurses or hospital staff give you. However, medication errors are fairly common and harm around 1.5 million people every year in the United States.
At Galligan Law in Des Moines, our medication error attorneys have a proven track record of winning millions in compensation for our clients in medical malpractice cases. While no amount of money can make up for your suffering, fair and just compensation can help you pay for your medical expenses while holding your provider responsible.
Fighting For The Justice You Deserve
Medication errors can happen from the diagnosis itself or in medication administration. One of the largest causes of medication errors is incorrectly prescribed medication or dosages. Whether the error happened due to illegible handwritten prescriptions or negligently missing patient allergies, you may have a viable medical malpractice claim.
Medication errors can happen due to a number of reasons, including:
- Incorrect dosage
- Prescribing or giving the wrong medication
- Prescribing medication that interacts with other drugs
- Giving medication the patient is allergic to
- Mixing up patient’s medications
If you or a loved one are the victim of a medication error, you may suffer serious side effects and long-term impacts that can worsen your illness, trigger a new one or even cause fatalities.
