Mistakes From Wrong Medication Can Lead To Injuries
When the wrong amount of medication is prescribed to an individual, wrong medication or due care for allergies, or drug interactions can lead to internal organs malfunctioning, serious injuries, or even death. When it comes to errors relating to prescription drugs, you’ll need the best team by your side to take care of the extensive research and investigation.
If you have suffered injury due to a mistake involving a prescription medication, you already know this. What you may not know, is how to get the compensation you are entitled to receive. At the Akers Law Offices in Charleston, we represent persons injured by the failure of physicians, pharmacists, nurses or other health care professionals to properly administer, dispense or provide proper instructions with prescription drugs.
Pharmacy and Medication Errors Fall Into Three Categories. Akers Law Offices Handle Them All.
We handle medical malpractice cases involving all three of the most common prescription errors in West Virginia:
- Wrong medication from your doctor: 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.
- Wrong prescription filled by your pharmacist: 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.
- Failure to administer the medication you need by your health care providers: 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.
