Overprescription Of Narcotics
Perhaps the most pervasive prescription error we see is the overprescription of narcotics. The dangers of narcotic prescription drugs are well-known, so if anything, doctors should err on the side of underprescribing these drugs. When they overprescribe narcotics, it usually makes for a clear case of negligence. We represent clients who have suffered serious complications and those who have lost family members to wrongful death as a result of narcotic overprescription.
Another common problem involves patients receiving the wrong medication. In some cases, this is a result of doctors prescribing the wrong medications for the symptoms patients exhibit or filling out prescription forms incorrectly. Other cases involve pharmacists filling prescriptions incorrectly, either giving patients the wrong drugs entirely or the wrong dosages.
We perform in-depth research in every medical malpractice case we handle to determine the source of liability and create strong claims for our clients. If you have been harmed by overprescription of narcotics, wrong prescriptions, birth-related medication errors or other medication errors, we can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
