An Incorrect Prescription Can Have Devastating Effects

One wrong pill, a wrong dosage, one error in medication — all can have deadly effects. We trust our doctors, pharmacists and other health care professionals to prescribe and administer proper medications in the correct dosage. Tragically, this doesn’t always happen. Thousands of people are injured every year, and many die unnecessarily. As Manassas wrong prescription lawyers, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of the injured.

Types of Prescription Errors

At The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, our Manassas wrong prescriptions lawyers help clients throughout Northern Virginia who have suffered illness or injury due to a prescription error. We have handled the following types of cases:

  • Drug overdoses
  • Dosage errors
  • Illegible prescriptions
  • Doctor, physician, nurse or aide administering wrong medication

Additionally, our Manassas wrong prescriptions lawyers are knowledgeable about the causes of prescription errors, which include:

  • Failing to consider/study patient’s medical history
  • Failing to gather current medication information
  • Failing to monitor side effects
  • Switching meds with other patient
  • Illegible prescriptions
  • Improper labeling of medication
  • Administration by under-trained staff

The effects of a wrong prescription error are as diverse as the types of medications being administered. A doctor or nurse mistake could lead to very serious illness or even death. In other cases, administering the wrong medicine or an improper dose could have little or no effect on a patient.

Pharmaceutical Errors

Our Fairfax overdose attorneys also handle injury claims that arise when pharmacists and pharmacy technicians make errors. Oftentimes, the prescribing physician may have done everything correctly, while the pharmacist mixed up prescriptions, read the wrong dosage or made another error.

If you or a loved one has been injured or made ill by a prescription error, it is important to hold the pharmacist, doctor or other health care professional accountable. These types of mistakes happen all too often. It is our aim to help you recover physically and financially after this type of medical mistake occurs.
