Medication errors can easily occur at a hospital, dental office, a doctor’s office or a pharmacy. Taking the wrong medicine or drug, or taking the incorrect dosage, can have disastrous effects on a person’s health. An incorrect diagnosis or a simple error made by a medical professional can cause permanent injury and necessitate a medical malpractice claim.
Doctors, nurses and pharmacists are obligated to prescribe and administer the correct medication in the correct amount. When these medical professionals fail to do so due to negligence, intentional conduct or carelessness, you may be able to file a claim to receive compensation for the illness or injury you or a loved one suffered.

Medication errors are the most common medical error in the United States, estimated to affect approximately 1.5 million people each year.
