Filing A Lawsuit When Injured By An Incorrect Prescription

If you have been injured by an incorrect prescription, you may have legal recourse for seeking compensation. While we know money can’t return good health or remove any injury that was experienced, it may be able to pave the way for seeking appropriate treatment. It can also make it easier to deal with any injuries or disabilities that were sustained. Another reason for seeking legal compensation is that it allows you to shed light on inappropriate practices or get answers about how the issue occurred. The legal experts at the Law Office of Christopher L. Giddings, P.C. can help you seek those benefits.

Proving Medical Negligence In Incorrect Prescription Cases

These types of cases can be extremely complex. First, you have to find out where the error originated from. Did a doctor prescribe the wrong medication in error or out of negligence? Or did a pharmacist or tech make an error in filling the prescription? These are important questions, because they determine who the defendant of the case is.

Even if the doctor did prescribe the wrong medication, he or she might not be liable for the injuries and damages, depending on the facts of the case. You must be able to prove that the required medical standards of care were not met and that the incorrect medication led to your injuries. Fortunately, the team at the Law Office of Christopher L. Giddings, P.C. has plenty of experience with these types of cases. We work with you to understand your situation and help you understand what options you may have for seeking legal compensation.
