Oregon Prescription Malpractice Attorney
Standing Up For Clients Harmed By Medication Errors
Many individuals rely upon prescription drugs to manage symptoms of a variety of illnesses and injuries. When the wrong medication is given or the wrong dose has been administered, serious injuries can leave them with more pain and injuries than they were experiencing to begin with. Pharmacists must be vigilant in their review of all of the medications that come from their pharmacies to ensure accuracy and patient safety.
My name is Robert Miller and I am a pharmacist malpractice and medical malpractice attorney in Eugene, Oregon. I focus my attention on standing up for those who have suffered due to pharmacist negligence. I offer a free initial consultation to learn more about how I may be able to handle your prescription drug error.
While it is important that patients be knowledgeable about the drugs they are taking, it is up to the pharmacist to ensure that the labeling of a prescription is correct and that the medication inside is correct. If the correct medication is given, but the wrong dosing instructions are written or a different dose of medication is included in the drug container, patients may overdose, placing their lives in jeopardy.
Hospital Medication Errors
Prescription drug errors are not limited to pharmacists. In a hospital setting, nurses are responsible for a large number of patients. Unfortunately, this often results in patients receiving the wrong medication or the wrong dosage, even if it was written correctly in their charts. I strive to help clients investigate the situation that resulted in their injuries or the death of a loved one due to a hospital medication error.
- It may also be possible to seek damages if the prescription drug failed to relieve the symptoms for which it was prescribed, thus causing further pain and injury.
