Medication Errors Trial Lawyers

A rising number of patients, both in hospitals and at home, are injured by prescription medication errors, and it has been estimated that medication errors result in about 7,000 deaths each year in the United States. Children and the elderly are at highest risk. A pharmaceutical error may occur when the drug is prescribed, when it is dispensed from the pharmacy, or even when administered by a nurse or other healthcare professional. One study found that “drug complications” in the hospital are the leading cause of malpractice – accounting for nearly 20% of all hospital errors.

The same study found that 2 out of every 100 patients admitted to a hospital experienced a “preventable adverse drug event” and estimated that the cost of prescription errors (several years ago) is at least $2 billion annually. As staggering as these numbers are, personal injury lawyers at our firm believe the actual number of medication mistakes is higher. Many errors go undocumented and unreported.
