Fighting for Compensation from a Medication Error

Understanding Medical Malpractice

Doctors are responsible for ensuring that their medication orders are precise, correct and understandable. Doctor's bad handwriting, using unintelligible abbreviations or other communication problems can compound an already sensitive situation. Pharmacies are responsible for correctly filling and dispensing prescription drugs.

As members of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Morris & Dewett Injury Lawyers is committed to tracking down the facts in your case and holding the responsible party accountable. We have recovered millions and successfully fought for victims of negligence in hospitals, physician errors, and nursing home abuse in order to recover fair compensation for serious injuries

Responsibility of Medical Practitioners

Nurses in hospitals and nursing homes are responsible for carrying out the doctor's orders and administering the correct dose of the medication in a timely fashion. Those who are at the highest risk for being victimized by medication mistakes include newborns, infants and children, chemotherapy patients, patients in intensive care and patients in long-term care and nursing home facilities.

Common medication errors include:

  • Being given the wrong medication
  • Being given too much or too little of a medication,
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Wrong prescription
  • Wrong medication for the symptoms
  • Medication which interacts harmfully with other medications
  • Given a medication which causes an allergic reaction
  • Confusion of drugs with similar names
