Medication Error Lawsuit

Were You Prescribed the Wrong Medication? Doctor Negligence Victims Have Legal Rights in NY.

Medications must be properly prescribed and administered to ensure patient safety. When a patient is given the wrong medicine, or the wrong medication dosage, they may suffer serious injuries or even death.

If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a medication error, contact the experienced medical malpractice lawyers at E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy. We represent clients throughout New York in medication error claims, including:

  • Prescribing or administering the wrong medication
  • Failure to consider the possibility of adverse drug interactions
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Pharmacy errors
  • Doctor and nurse errors
  • Incorrect dosage errors

If you or a loved one has been injured by a medication error, it is critical that you act quickly to protect your rights.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
