Minneapolis & St. Paul Prescription Error Lawyers
A prescription error can occur because of the negligence of a doctor or pharmacist. Both of these individuals are professionals who are to work together to ensure that every patient receives the right medication. When the patient receives the medication, the rules for taking it must be clearly labeled and explained. Failure to provide a patient with the medical treatment and attention that they need can result in a prescription error.
If a prescription error occurs, the result can be addiction, overdose, and other serious health conditions. Some prescription errors can even lead to death. If you have been injured or a loved one killed as the result of a prescription error, you may be able to hold the responsible party financially liable. Your personal injury attorney will evaluate your case and determine if you can file a lawsuit. If so, work will begin immediately.
Focusing On Your Health
A prescription error can lead to serious health conditions and deterioration of the existing condition because the proper treatment wasn’t administered. All of these are factors that point toward medical negligence.
In the case of pharmacists, they have to be exact. Failure to ensure a patient receives the correct medication can lead to a great number of problems, such as organ damage, dependency, and overdose. Unfortunately, many pharmacists are overworked and tired, but they still have a job to do and that is to be as accurate as possible.
