When most people think about hospital errors and medical malpractice lawsuits, they think about mistakes in the operating room or surgical errors. However, medication errors are one of the most common types of medical malpractice; especially in newborn children. Medication errors take place on a daily basis in Texas, and many of these mistakes can have dire consequences including permanent health issues, pain and suffering, and even wrongful death.
It’s important to understand that while the correct dosage taken for the correct reasons can have health benefits and even save lives, a wrong dose or the wrong medication can cause serious medical problems. You may be able to recover compensation from the hospital following such an error, but it’s important to discuss the facts of your case with an attorney before you make any decisions.
If you or a loved one has been harmed because of a medication error caused by a hospital, a doctor, a nurse, pharmacy, or another medical professional, you should speak with a Dallas medical malpractice attorney about the particulars of your case.
