Medication Errors

Representation for Victims of Medication Error in Gainesville Florida

When medications are prescribed and taken as directed, they can work miracles for patients with medical conditions. Medication can help patients live with less pain, and prevent future health problems as well. However, when medication errors occur–even minor ones–, a patient can suffer unnecessary and unforeseen medical issues, develop other serious medical conditions, or even die. If you or a loved one has been a victim of medication error, the attorneys at DeCarlis & Sawyer can provide experienced and knowledgeable representation, and fight for the compensation you deserve for any pain and suffering, development of new medical conditions, or a loved one’s death.

Medication Errors are Preventable

Our firm has the extensive knowledge and resources required to determine the cause of a patient’s medical error. The most common types of medical errors include:

  • Patients receiving the wrong drug
  • Patients receiving the wrong dosage of a drug
  • Patients receiving drugs they are allergic to
  • Patients receiving drugs that have contraindications for each other
  • Patients receiving improper amounts of anesthesia

Like all other forms of medical malpractice  claims, it must be proven that the nurse, physician, or other medical professional did not follow the standard of care. We will work with members of the medical field to determine where the negligence lies, and will hold those responsible accountable for their errors.
