Prescription Error - Who is Responsible?
The responsible party in a lawsuit concerning a prescription error may differ depending on the particular case. For example, a doctor may mistakenly write down the wrong medication on a prescription slip. A nurse may pick the wrong medicine off the shelf and administer it to the patient. A doctor may forget to fully review a patient's medical history and miss a known allergy to a prescription. A pharmacist may mistakenly fill a prescription with the wrong dosage amount. It will often take a careful review of medical records to determine how a prescription error came to be. Our law firm utilizes the services of medical professionals and others to act as expert witnesses as we investigate our clients' cases and represent their interests in negotiations or in civil court. Our goal is to determine exactly what individual person or entity should be held accountable in order to maximize our client's financial recovery.
