Prescription Errors

Representing Victims Of Prescription Errors

When you follow the orders of your doctor, you expect to see results. It is not your job to understand the science behind prescription drugs and dosage. It is, however, the job of your physician and your pharmacist, and when they make a prescription mistake, giving you the wrong medication or dosage, you could encounter serious problems.

For the past 30 years, our firm has been protecting the rights of medical malpractice victims in New Jersey and New York. At the law offices of MetroLaw.Com, we will help you hold the negligent doctor or pharmacist responsible and make sure you get the proper medical assistance you need.

Confident Handling Of Medication Error Cases

There is no excuse for a prescription mistake. Whether the mistake was made by your pharmacist or your doctor, you have the right to receive fair and just compensation. The last thing you want to do is get caught in a blame game between the parties as they point fingers at one another.

Our attorneys will work with a variety of experts, including investigators and doctors, to figure out what led to your prescription mistake. We will determine who was responsible and make sure they are held accountable for their actions. Common problems that lead to prescription errors include:

  • The pharmacist misreads a doctor’s prescription, such as a .1 being misread as 1.0
  • Contraindicated medicines, which can be harmful and even lethal
  • Failure to note patient allergy
  • Doctor’s handwriting is indecipherable or it looks like they wrote the name of another drug
  • Doctor makes computer input error
