Medication Errors Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Medication can save lives when the right options are used. On the flip side, the wrong medication can also cause severe injury and death. One of the most common types of medical malpractice is medication errors. When a patient does not receive the medication they need for treatment, or receives a medication that can be harmful, it can be a deadly mistake. At Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law, we handle medication error claims against doctors, medical facilities and pharmacies when these mistakes cause harm to a patient.

Medication errors are always preventable. There are countless procedures in place to prevent the wrong drug or dosage being given to a patient in medical facilities. Every person that handles medications has protocols they should follow to check and double check that the right medication is given to patients. This is true in hospitals, clinics and pharmacies, yet it is estimated over a million medication errors occur each year. When an error occurs that causes severe injuries to a patient, the responsible facility may be liable for those injuries.

Types of Medication Errors

Imagine if the wrong type of drug is dispensed to a patient. Not only did the patient not receive the medication they need, they may be taking a drug that could cause them harm. It can cause severe illness, injury and death, all caused by one mistake. Some common types of medication errors that have been reported include:

  • Wrong dosage of medication
  • Wrong type of medication given to a patient at a hospital or clinic
  • Different pills or medicine distributed to patient than prescribed
  • Medication given to wrong patient

Whether you receive a bottle of pills at a pharmacy with the wrong pills inside, or a nurse administers the wrong drug to a patient in the hospital, it can cause severe harm. When an injury occurs due to the wrong type or dosage of medication, it is usually a clear case of medication error and medical malpractice. If you or a family member have been harmed from a medication error, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law to discuss your claim.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
