Rhode Island Medication Error Attorneys

Drugs are meant to alter the way the body functions. Physicians and other medical professionals prescribe specific drugs in specific doses in order to correct an impairment or disease, but sometimes a medication error or pharmaceutical error can cause severe complications and dangerous side effects. At DeLuca and Weizenbaum Ltd., our attorneys protect the victims of medical malpractice stemming from a medication error.

Our lawyers handle medical malpractice cases resulting in dangerous drug reactions from medication error. It is the job of physicians, pharmacists, and anesthesiologists to understand the harmful potential side effects of the drugs they use, prescribe and dispense.

Providence Anesthesia Malpractice Lawyers

Dangerous reactions to drugs prescribed by a healthcare professional can occur both at home and at hospitals. Nursing malpractice, anesthesia malpractice, and prescription mistakes can all cause greater harm than the good for which the drug was originally intended. A medication error could be the result of an allergic reaction, or perhaps the drug was meant for short-term use, but a physician or pharmacist failed to stop it, causing long-term problems, such as:

  • Overmedication
  • Under-medication
  • Over-sedation
  • Anesthesia malpractice
  • Pharmaceutical errors
  • Failure to recognize preexisting condition
  • Nursing malpractice
  • Prescription mistakes
  • Drug errors/mix-ups
  • Hospital malpractice

Pharmacy negligence and hospital negligence may result in the dispensing of incorrect medications. In addition, many dangerous drug reactions are the result of errors in prescribing dangerous drugs. We can take action against negligent pharmaceutical companies, bringing malpractice and products liability suits. Our attorneys have experience in cases of dangerous pharmaceutical drugs, such as Vioxx.
