|Can I file a medical malpractice claim if I was injured due to medication errors?|
I recently spoke with a woman from North Augusta who was injured at a local hospital as a result of her being given the wrong medication. Her first question was about whether she actually had a case or not. The first question really is, what are your injuries? If you haven’t been injured as a result of taking the wrong medicine, then, no, you really don’t have a case. If you have been injured, then, yes, you do have a case. In that case, someone did mess up. Either it was the doctor who wrote the wrong prescription or the pharmacist who actually filled the prescription incorrectly. Sometimes, it can be both the pharmacist and the doctor who are held responsible because both parties have responsibilities, in terms of their practice, to ensure that people do not get prescribed the wrong medication.
I would urge anyone out there who has been the victim of any type of misfilled prescription, or anything related to being given the wrong medication, to go ahead and contact, as soon as possible, a competent experienced trial lawyer, a lawyer who has handled medical malpractice cases in the past and who has experience not only in the context of medical malpractice cases, but in handling cases involving misfilled prescriptions and incorrect medications.
