Every year in the United States, thousands of people die as a result of medication errors. Victims of medication errors are often patients who receive the wrong drug, incorrect dosage, medicines they are allergic to, those who are given a combination of drugs which cause adverse effects whose health problems are not taken into consideration. Young children and the elderly face the highest risk of suffering drug-error related health issues as a result of their weaker immune systems and lower chemical tolerance.

A Preventable Problem
Despite the fact that 90 percent of medication errors can be avoided if the correct procedures are followed, thousands of people still suffer the devastating effects of these mistakes. Medication errors occur as a result of a doctor’s illegible handwriting, incorrect prescriptions, similarity between the names of drugs, and more. Research indicates that the most common type of medication errors are:
- Wrong medication was given
- Wrong dose was given
- Wrong directions for use
Careful screening of a patient’s current drug intake, past medical history, and other health issues that could affect the body’s ability to process medication may all help decrease the occurrence of medication errors.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury or death as a result of a medication error, it is important to know that you have the legal right to take action against the doctor, pharmacist, nurse, or other healthcare professional responsible for your injuries. A qualified and trusted medical malpractice attorney can thoroughly investigate your case, file the appropriate paperwork, and help you recover your economic and non-economic losses including medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost earning or income capacity and more.
