Medical errors is the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States (Source: study by researchers at John Hopkins University School of Medicine). Everywhere we go, we are told that medications and prescription drugs are designed, tested, and approved products intended to help us live healthier, happier lives. While this is usually true, there are some cases where medications only cause pain and suffering. This is usually due to the negligence of a doctor, pharmacy, or other medical entity when prescribing or compounding prescription medications.

Before prescribing medication of any kind, a physician must take every precaution to ensure that his or her diagnosis is correct and that the medication will, in fact, help their patient. Misdiagnosis or any other negligence on the part of the prescribing doctor could result in a prescription error and an adverse reaction to a drug, leading to serious injury or wrongful death.
Patients can also suffer injury not due to a negligent doctor or wrongful prescription, but because of pharmaceutical negligence. Prescription medications must be carefully measured out, compounded, counted, and distributed to patients by licensed pharmacy technicians and pharmacists. If a prescription is not mixed correctly, or if the dosage is accidentally too high, the patient could suffer the consequences because of the pharmacy personnel’s oversight. Victims of either of these types of cases deserve to receive fair compensation.
