Medication Errors

When medications are prescribed and administered properly, they can do many good things: treat medical conditions, help patients live with less pain and prevent health issues to name a few. However, when medication errors occur, patients can suffer unnecessary medical problems, develop further medical conditions or even die.

At Musleh Law Firm, in Ocala, Florida, we provide strong and successful advocacy for patients and their families.

To discuss your possible medical malpractice claim, you may call us locally at 352-484-0134. We offer free initial consultations. Additionally, we handle all medical malpractice claims on a contingency basis, which means we do not receive attorney fees or costs unless we recover compensation on your behalf.

MEDICATION ERRORS CAN BE PREVENTED

Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of the ways in which medication errors occur. While there are a multitude of causes, in our experience we have found that medication errors often occur due to entirely preventable situations, including:

  • Patients receiving the wrong drug
  • Patients receiving the wrong dosage of drug
  • Patients receiving drugs they are allergic to
  • Patients receiving a combination of drugs that are contraindicated
  • Patients being over-anesthetized during surgery

As with all medical malpractice claims, it must be shown that the physician, nurse or other medical professional did not follow the standard of care. Working with experts in the medical field, we are able to determine if the standard of care was followed. We have extensive resources to ensure that your claim is handled effectively and that justice is obtained.
