Prescription & Drug Error Lawyers

Proudly Serving Clients Nationwide

A pharmacist’s or medical professional’s seemingly simple prescription error can have life-threatening consequences for the adult or child taking that medication.

Every year, thousands of people in this country suffer harm due to drug errors, per Medical Principles and Practice. Children and the elderly are particularly susceptible to these dangerous mishaps. The prescribing physician can write the wrong dosage or instructions, or the pharmacist can fill it incorrectly.

The lawyers from Hilliard Law can serve as your advocate if you or a loved one suffered harm due to a medication error. 

Our prescription and drug error lawyers can seek compensation for you. Call (866) 927-3420 today.

Our Commitment to You

Your legal team will tailor our services to meet your needs. You might not require all of our services, but knowing about them could be helpful. 

We could assist you by:

  • Filling out all necessary paperwork
  • Helping you stay within the relevant statute of limitations
  • Assigning a value to your case
  • Negotiating for a fair award
  • Making your case in court if the need arises
  • Answering your questions
  • Updating you throughout the case
  • Protecting your rights

Many are familiar with the Hippocratic Oath medical staff must uphold. Your lawyer will show that a healthcare provider failed to meet these standards.

How Do Medication Errors Occur?

Medication Dispensing Errors and Prevention” notes that over 7,000 people die due to medication errors in the United States every year. You are not alone in suffering this kind of medical malpractice. However, just because it happens too often doesn’t mean you can’t seek compensation.

We could hold the at-fault parties responsible for their actions. Such individuals include those who have access to your medication. 

Prescription errors may involve:

  • A doctor prescribing the wrong medication or a drug that is contraindicated with another medication
  • A pharmacist dispensing the incorrect medication
  • A pharmacist dispensing the correct medication but in the wrong dosage
  • A pharmacist mislabeling the prescription
  • A hospital giving medication to the wrong patient

The manufacturer of the drug could have also made a mistake when bottling or labeling the product. Our team will investigate the cause of your injuries and condition. 

Potential Damages in a Medication Error Lawsuit

You can recover a financial award for the negligence you or a family member suffered. Medical professionals have a standard they have to uphold. This includes keeping patients safe. Failure to do so is not only unethical but dangerous. 

Possible losses you may be experiencing include:

  • Pain and suffering: The drug error might have had a negative physical effect on your body. You could have taken a medication that weakened your heart or temporarily lost your sight. You can seek recovery for these damages. We can evaluate your situation and assign a fair dollar amount to your pain and suffering.
  • Medical costs: You might have required an ambulance to take you to the hospital, where you could have stayed for days or weeks. Treatments, new (and correct) medication, x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and more could qualify you for compensation. If you needed a wheelchair as a result of your injury or worsened condition, this detail is also relevant. Your lawyer taking prescription and drug error cases will note it.
  • Mental anguish: This experience could have left you with trauma around seeking medical aid. It might be difficult for you to see a doctor due to anxiety or distrust of medical workers. The inability to enjoy your old hobbies or a change in your romantic relationship also qualifies.
  • Wrongful death: You might have lost a loved one to a prescription or drug error. Let Hilliard Law fight for justice on your family’s behalf. We can secure an award that can ease the practical troubles your pain has created. This award could cover funeral and burial expenses, your loved one’s pain, medical costs from before their passing, and loss of inheritance or income.
