How Medication Errors Happen
There are some instances when a medication error happens because of an issue with the medical care professional who prescribed a medication. Or it may have happened because of bad handwriting, miscommunication, carelessness, typing errors and so on. The damages with one simple mistake made with medication can be extremely harmful and sometimes tragically fatal. If you get a medication that you don’t need, you have to deal with those side effects as well as the effects of not getting the medication that you did need.
You may be eligible for a claim if your medical care professional:
- mistakenly gave you the wrong medication
- mistakenly gave you the wrong dose of medication
- gave you medication unintentionally
- gave you medication without looking at your allergies
- gave you medication without looking at the drugs you do take
- mix mediation dangerously
