Morgantown Medication Errors Lawyer

We Work to Uncover Medical Negligence

Getting the right medicine to the right patient sounds like a straightforward task. However, lack of communication, overlooked details and human error in a busy hospital setting can lead to medication errors. Whether the error is the fault of the doctor, pharmacist or staff member administering the medicine, it can have disastrous consequences for the patient.

A medication error can cause catastrophic injuries or wrongful death in any patient, but patients who are critically ill, very old or very young may be at increased risk for serious complications. If you or a family member has been a victim of medical malpractice, you may be able to collect damages.

Our skill as trial lawyers gives us an edge when battling hospitals and medical malpractice insurance companies.

One of the top health risks in hospitals is opioid-induced respiratory depression. This can occur when patients are given post-surgery pain narcotics such as morphine, methadone and Dilaudid. An accidental overdose of these painkillers or negligent monitoring of the patient after administering the drug can lead to respiratory depression and death.

Additional medication errors may involve issues such as:

  • Prescribing the wrong medicine
  • Failure to note dangerous drug interactions
  • Giving the wrong medication or wrong dosage
  • Administering medications late or skipping doses
  • Failure to monitor patient for adverse reactions

Doctors may also ignore patient risk factors or fail to ask about patient allergies. In addition to physician errors, there may be negligence or mistakes by the pharmacist, nurse or nurses' aide.
