Medical Malpractice & Medications
Prescription Errors in Washington DC
Unfortunately, when your healthcare provider prescribes drugs for you to
take, there are sometimes things that go wrong. For instance, a healthcare
provider may prescribe you drugs without informing you of their associated
side effects; you might be allergic to certain drugs; you might be prescribed
drugs for a misdiagnosed medical problem; or there could be problems when
the prescription is filled.
Another serious problem occurs when your pharmacy fills your prescription
improperly, and gives you the wrong medication. All too often wrong medications
are taken or prescribed incorrectly. Not only will incorrect drugs injure
you, they can aggravate any medical conditions that you have, or even
When your doctor prescribes the incorrect prescription, or when the pharmacy
fills the correct prescription improperly, they should be held accountable.
The affects from taking the incorrect medicine can be very dangerous.
You need to be prescribed the correct drugs for your medical treatment,
and your doctor must also review possible risks and side effects that
could result from you taking the drug. If your doctor fails to warn you
of the risks or side effects of a medication, or if you receive an incorrect
prescription or medication, you could have a medical malpractice claim.
