Prescription Medication & Over the Counter Drug Errors
Cranston & Edwards PLLC – Morgantown, WV Trial Attorneys
If you or a loved one have suffered or become seriously ill or injured as a result of a healthcare professional’s negligence, you have the right to hold the doctor, nurse, pharmacist, hospital, and/or medical facility responsible for your injuries and losses. All medical practitioners in the state of West Virginia must legally provide treatment according to the recognized Standard of Care. When prescription drug and over-the-counter (OTC) medication errors occur resulting in injury or death as a result of negligence, this duty is breached.
Medication errors can take many forms:
- Wrong Medication Given
- Patient Allergy
- Incorrect Dosage Prescribed
- Incorrect Directions for Taking Medication Provided
- Dangerous Drug Combination Given
