Don't let medical personnel get away with medication errors

In our previous blog post, we discussed some of the steps that you can take to prevent medication errors. Even if you take all of those steps, you might not be able to prevent certain medication errors from occurring. When you are subjected to a medication error that leads to further harm, you might decide that you want to do something about the error. Seeking compensation is one option that you have if the medication error was caused by negligence. We can help you move forward with your case.

There are several different types of medication errors that can occur. A major one occurs when medications that are prescribed have contraindications or interactions with other medications. Drug interactions can be dangerous. In some cases, these interactions can lead to severe side effects or death.

Another issue that can occur is an overdose, which is possible if a higher dosage of a medication than what is safe is prescribed to you. This is a serious issue that can lead to brain damage, heart failure and other life-threatening problems.

If you are in the hospital or in a controlled medical setting, you will likely depend on others to administer your medications. When you don't get medications that are considered vital, you might suffer harm because your medical condition might go untreated.

In each of these cases, proper medical procedures could have prevented errors. Those are instances in which you might choose to seek compensation. Determining the root cause of the error and figuring out who to hold liable for the error can give us a good starting point for your medical malpractice case.
