Most Prescription Errors Fall Into Three Categories. We Handle Them All.
We handle medical malpractice cases involving all three of the most common prescription errors in West Virginia:
- Your doctor prescribes the wrong medication: First, we represent clients in claims of a doctor's error in prescribing a particular drug or medication without regard for allergies, interactions or other contraindications for a particular drug.
- Your pharmacist fills the wrong prescription: We present pharmaceutical injury claims against pharmacists who fill a correct prescription with the wrong drug, the wrong dose or without accurate instructions as to how to use the medication safely.
- Your health care providers fail to administer the medication you need: We also represent clients in cases involving a nurse or other attendant's failure to administer a prescription drug according to the instructions of the doctor or the pharmacy. Claims against health care providers can cover errors ranging from improper insertion of an IV to failure to administer drugs at the proper times of day, with or without food as directed or without consideration of a patient's other symptoms.
