Bad Drugs & Pharmacy Errors
Introducing Our Firm
Medication errors can occur in many ways:
- A patient may be given the wrong medication or the wrong dosage of a medication by a paramedic, a nurse or hospital staff member.
- A pharmacy may have misfilled a prescription.
- A patient may have been given a drug to which he or she is allergic because the medical staff failed to take a complete history or failed to read the patient's medical chart.
- A patient may not have been told how to take a medication properly or may not have been warned of potential drug interactions.
Some medication errors are detected quickly because the patient develops breathing problems or skin problems, but other medication errors are discovered much later, when the patient develops liver or kidney failure or fails to improve from the illness being treated.

Bringing A Successful Claim For A Medication Error
It's important to know that to bring a successful medical malpractice claim, you must have had financial losses or lasting medical problems due to the error. If you suffered a bad reaction and were immediately treated and the treatment was successful, it is unlikely you will be successful with your claim.
For example, if you were given the wrong dose of a medication and suffered severe skin blistering and burning that required weeks or months of treatment, you are in a good position to receive compensation. If you suffered hives that went away within a day or two, did not miss work or school and have no lasting effects, financial recovery is less likely.
Mr. Hoyt can review your case and advise you on how a court is likely to view it depending upon the length of time you were affected, the seriousness of the side effects and the degree of recovery you were able to achieve.
