The defendant in a lawsuit over mistakes in medication might be a prescribing physician, a pharmacy that filled the prescription improperly, a nurse who administered it in the wrong amounts or at the wrong times, or even a hospital.
We can find proof of medication errors in records indicating that the prescribing doctor ignored a patient’s allergies, vulnerability to certain drug interactions, or ignored FDA Black Box Warnings. We might find that the right drug was prescribed, but the pharmacy failed to supply it in the proper dosage or with the right instructions. It might turn out that a nurse administered the medication incorrectly in the hospital or other clinical setting.
In recent years, we’ve found that the latest innovations in pain management have led to problems with overdoses, especially with Fentanyl transdermal patches. By working with highly qualified medical experts, we’re usually able to identify the party responsible for the medication error and the resulting harm to the patient.
