Medication Errors

Newark Medication Errors Lawyers

Essex County Medical Malpractice Attorneys

We trust doctors to prescribe the right medication for our illnesses. We trust pharmacists to give us that medication. And we trust nurses to administer that medication properly. We do not expect errors to happen because they should not happen. When prescribing doctors, pharmacists, and nurses make serious medication errors, they don’t only put their patients’ lives in danger; they break our trust.

If you or a loved one is the victim of a medication error, the West Orange medical error attorneys at Greenberg Minasian, LLC, can help you hold the negligent parties accountable. Contact our legal team to discuss your injuries. We serve clients in Essex County, Hudson County, and throughout northern New Jersey.

Drug Prescription and Drug Administration Errors

There is no good excuse for a medication error. Often, these serious errors happen because medical professionals do not take the time necessary to avoid mistakes. A prescribing physician may write illegibly or ignore important parts of a patient’s medical chart, such as patient allergies. A nurse may mistake one patient for another and prescribe the wrong medication. A pharmacist working under time pressures may label a drug incorrectly.

Our West Orange medical error attorneys have more than 15 years of experience protecting clients who have been injured by medication errors, such as:

  • Failure to administer the proper dosage of medication/drug overdose or underdose
  • Failure to administer prophylactic medication
  • Prescribing the wrong drug
  • Giving the patient the wrong dosage
  • Administering drugs to the wrong patient
  • Prescribing multiple drugs that can lead to dangerous drug interactions
  • Not providing adequate directions to the patient
  • Not monitoring drug side effects
