Overdose of Medications

Contact a Medical Malpractice Firm That Has Achieved Multiple Eight-Figure Settlements

In- and out-patient individuals receiving professional medical treatment are usually too sick to fully participate in their care. They need and deserve to rely on healthcare providers to conscientiously avoid medication/drug errors that result in overdose or death.

Medication errors, though, do occur, usually in instances involving:

  • Pharmacists' inability to read a doctor's handwriting
  • Numerical and punctuation errors (for instance, prescribing 10 milligrams of a medication instead of 1.0 milligrams, or providing 100 milligrams instead)
  • Doctors' failure to understand proper medication amounts, medications' effects, patients' drug allergies and patients' medication histories
