Medication errors in a clinic or hospital setting can be caused by a doctor, nurse, pharmacy or defective drug. If you or a loved one has suffered any injury that might possibly be linked to medication, it is important that you speak with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to gain an understanding of your rights and legal options.
Dosage errors are the most common type of mistake, and such a mistake could cause an overdose, an allergic reaction, another damaging side effect or death. About 25 percent of medical malpractice cases in the U.S. are linked to medication errors, and dosage errors or wrong medications result in thousands of deaths every year.

Proper training, use of up-to-date and well-maintained technology, standardized medical procedures, and vigilance are necessary to prevent medication errors.
