Malpractice Claims for Medication and Prescription Errors

Pharmaceutical errors, whether committed by the prescribing physician, the pharmacist, or the nursing assistant who administers medications to the patient, can cause serious problems for anyone who is receiving the wrong drug in the wrong amount. If you or someone in your family has suffered a serious injury due to medication errors, contact a medical malpractice attorney at the law firm of Stephen J. Gordon & Associates.

With offices in Worcester and Scottsdale, our firm serves personal injury and wrongful death clients in Massachusetts and Arizona. Working closely with experts from medicine, pharmacology and nursing, we can assess your claim and develop a trial strategy for proving liability and damages in such medication error cases as the following:

•  Prescribing the wrong medication for the condition indicated
•  Failing to consider medical history, drug interactions, allergies, or dangerous side effects when choosing a prescription for a patient
•  Providing the wrong drug, or preparing the right medication in the wrong dosage
•  Errors by a nurse, orderly or home health attendant in administering drugs to the patient
•  Failing to warn the patient of the risks of a particular medication

Prescription and medication errors can lead to serious health consequences, including death. Liver damage, kidney failure, blindness, deafness or even severe psychiatric problems can result from the negligence of a prescribing physician, pharmacist or nurse.

Medical malpractice lawyer Stephen Gordon has more than 30 years of trial experience, with much of it focused on the recovery of personal injury or wrongful death damages on behalf of people harmed by the negligence of a health care professional.
