Types of Medication Errors
There are a number of different ways that a medication error may affect a patient. For example, a patient with a known allergy to a specific medication may suffer serious injury or may even die if administered this medication because a doctor failed to review the patient's medical history. The same applies if a medication is prescribed or administered that violently reacts with another medicine the patient is already taken or has been given. Finally, even when a doctor prescribes the right medicine a pharmacy may make a mistake when dispensing the prescription.
Working with a San Jose Medical Malpractice Attorney
Filing a claim regarding a medication error may be difficult. You may not know how to establish that a doctor made a mistake in prescribing or administering medication to you or a loved one, but an attorney can work with expert witnesses in medicine and prescription drugs to work on building an aggressive case that represents your interests and proves the liability of the responsible doctor, hospital or other medical professional or facility.
