Medication errors can be a doctor's fault

Many people in Maryland use medication on a daily basis. This medication can help prevent serious medical problems. It can also help to lessen the symptoms of existing medical conditions. No matter the reason why people use medication, it is important that people use the correct medication in the correct way. If the medication is not used correctly, it can be extremely dangerous for the individual taking it.

People rely on their doctors to prescribe the correct type of medication for their condition. If the correct type of medication is not prescribed, individuals can suffer very serious consequences. Doctors are supposed to know what medications are best to treat a particular condition and when medication may interact with something else the patient is taking.

However, doctors make mistakes all the time. If a doctor is negligent in prescribing medication, the doctor may be held responsible in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Doctors are responsible for ensuring that medications will not result in unpleasant drug interactions or otherwise cause serious issues with the patient. If a doctor fails to ask about known allergies or take other precautions to prevent a drug interaction, then the doctor may be held liable.

The attorneys at our law firm understand how difficult medical mistakes can be for patients in Maryland. Medication errors can lead to serious consequences. Our attorneys can investigate the case to determine whether a doctor was negligent in prescribing certain medication. If negligence was a factor in the case, we can work hard on patients' behalf to get people the compensation they need to recover from this medical mistake.

People may be entitled to compensation for their injuries when a medication error occurs. For more information about medication errors, doctors' negligence and our law firm, please see our medication errors webpage.
