Types of Medication Errors
Medication errors can take many forms, and they can be committed by doctors,
pharmacists, nurses, anesthesiologists, and other medical professionals
who prescribe or handle prescription medications. Because these drugs
can be dangerous if misused, there are strict rules and procedures in
place to ensure patients’ safety. Unfortunately, health care providers
can commit errors involving medications that put patients’ health at risk.
Our firm handles all types of medication error cases, including:
- Incorrect dosage of medication
- Using the incorrect medication
- Unsafe or improper administration
- Complications with other medications
- Failing to inform patients of risks
If you or someone you love have been a victim of a medication error, our
team is prepared to do all in our power to hold negligent health care
providers and their insurers liable for your damages. With decades of
hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation recovered for clients, we have what it takes to secure
the recovery you need for:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional and mental anguish
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of companionship
- Lost work earnings
- Lost future wages
- Medical bills
- Loss of consortium

at Blue Island Hospital. Physicians and the radiologist on site failed
