Exposing medication overdose errors in Ohio and nationwide
Were you prescribed the wrong dosage after a pharmacist misread your doctor’s note? Did a pharmacist or a pharmacy technician give you the wrong medication? Was your loved one administered anesthesia for routine surgery and suffered serious complications after being given too much medicine?
Prescription drugs can provide temporary and long-term relief from a wide range of medical conditions. However, when a patient is given the wrong dose or the wrong medication, there are serious and life-threatening implications. If you or your loved one was prescribed the wrong dosage or the wrong type of medication, obtain experienced legal counsel. Every prescription drug error is fact-specific. At The Lancione Law Firm, we have the skills and legal resources to take on highly complex medical malpractice claims.
You can fight back against preventable drug complications
Patients face serious and sometimes life-threatening implications when physicians or pharmacists fail to:
- Prescribe the correct dosage.
- Protect against possible reactions.
- Check for drug interactions and other contraindications.
- Question a patient carefully on other medications he or she may be taking.
- Carefully monitor the patient’s conditions.
