An Incorrect Dose Of Medication Can Be Deadly

Many of us are bad with numbers. It's easy to make a simple error in calculating figures, place a decimal point in the wrong place or even add a wrong number somewhere in a calculation. However, when these mistakes are made by the people filling your prescription, the consequences of this type of simple error can be catastrophic, even fatal. After suffering the ill effects of wrong dosage errors, an experienced attorney can help you understand your rights and options, and help you obtain full and fair compensation for the losses and damages you have suffered.

At the Law Office of Jean Sutton Martin, we take pride in representing clients throughout the area of Wilmington, North Carolina, in cases involving wrong dosages and other pharmacy negligence cases.

Seasoned Legal Judgment In Wrong Dosage Cases

Pharmacists can make a number of errors that can result in wrong dosages, including:

  • Prescription mistakes: In some cases, the problem arises as a result of an illegible prescription from the doctor or a failure to read the prescription carefully.
  • Numerical and clerical errors: Some pharmaceutical dosage errors are simple math mistakes. These can show up in dangerous strengths or quantities of a medication or inaccurate instructions to the patient.
  • Measurement errors: When scales are not calibrated properly or pharmacists are sloppy in their measurements, the results can be devastating.

Even though some of the causes of wrong dosage errors can be simple, understandable mistakes, pharmacists and other medical professionals are held to a high standard to make sure these mistakes don't happen. Attorney Jean S. Martin and our legal team will research all aspects of your case to determine where the errors lie, and we will help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
