What to do When the Doctor Gave You the Wrong Medication:
When a doctor prescribes a medication, there is a lot more to consider than whether the drug will be an effective treatment for the patient’s condition. There are a number of factors that must be considered, including the patient’s medical history and drug allergies, the potential for cross reactions with other drugs the patient may be taking, correct dosage and many others.
Medication errors can lead to serious health complications for patients, and some can even be fatal. If you or a loved one has suffered any type of negative impact because of a medication error, you should seek the advice of an experienced Utah medical malpractice lawyer. You may be entitled to seek compensation for any injuries you may have suffered.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, there can be multiple parties who may share in the liability for your injuries. In addition to the doctor who prescribed your medication, pharmacists can fill the prescription wrong and nurses can administer the wrong drug or dosage.
We work to protect the interests of medical malpractice victims. We work to determine how the error occurred and who had the chance to stop it. After thoughtful and thorough investigation, we determine the extent of the harm you have suffered and seek full compensation from all responsible parties.
