Medication Errors Can Be Life-Threatening

Taking prescription medication always carries certain risks. Most patients do not understand the potential side effects or the danger of mixing drugs; they simply trust their doctor to protect their health.

When doctors prescribe medications, they are responsible for making sure that patients are able to take the drugs and that they are not mixing drugs with conflicting medications. Pharmacists also have a duty of care when they distribute medication to ensure the correct drug and dosage.

Unfortunately, every year patients suffer severe injuries and illnesses at the hands of medical professionals. At Vincent J. DeSalvo, Attorney at Law, we are experienced in and passionate about finding justice for people wronged by medical professionals.

Medication Errors And Prescription Drug Negligence

Prescription errors can result in:

  • Serious injury
  • Heart attack
  • Brain damage
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful death

While many of these errors occur with over the counter or prescription drugs, simple drug distribution mistakes can happen in the hospital while under the care of a medical professional. If you or someone you love suffered an injury as the result of prescription drug negligence, you may be entitled to significant compensation.
