Medication Errors

Medication Errors Litigation in Maryland

Litigation involving medication errors can be among the most complex in the medical malpractice field. It takes extraordinary knowledge, experience and a strong team effort to bring a winning case. Because these claims are difficult, you need to work with an experienced, successful team of attorneys to explain your case and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

At the law offices of Joel L. Katz, L.L.C., we have been representing clients throughout Maryland since 1966. Our lawyers take cases for clients in Annapolis and Centreville and all the way to the Eastern Shore. We have more than 125 years of combined legal experience handling a range of legal matters, including medication errors and other medical malpractice claims.

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.

Incorrect Prescriptions

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.
