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 & Sanders 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 & Sanders Attorneys at Law to discuss your claim.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
