Every year, thousands of people die or develop complications due to medication errors and other forms of negligence.
The cases keep rising as many of them go unreported. To ensure you do not become part of these statistics, knowing how a personal injury lawyer can help you when you have a wrong prescription case can be crucial.
Here is what you need to know about compensation for damages for medication errors:
Who is to blame for harm caused by a medication error?
When you develop a health complication after taking wrong prescriptions or surgery-gone-wrong, you might know who is to blame for your current condition. The harm caused by your doctor can make you have pain and mental health problems, affecting your quality of life. That means you will need to spend a lot of money paying for your doctor’s negligence.
The only ways to hold a medical health provider liable for medication error damages is to file a medical malpractice lawsuit with a personal injury lawyer, but only if:
- You prove that there was an encounter between you and the at-fault party.
- The at-fault party failed to perform medical protocols as expected of them.
- The at-fault party’s negligent actions caused the medical error.
- The medication error caused mental issues, hefty medical bills, loss of employment, or physical disability.
