Medical Negligence and Medical Malpractice Commonly Results from Prescription Errors:

When a medical professional breaches approved medical community standards, resulting in injury or death to a patient, medical negligence – otherwise known as medical malpractice – results. If a client loses their life, their heirs may file a wrongful death lawsuit, which covers many of the same types of damages as a personal injury suit, with the addition of funeral and burial expenses and other damages. Medical malpractice is, one of the most serious areas of negligence law because, the vast majority of errors are completely avoidable. Avoidable errors are pure negligence, whether or not there is intent. If you or a loved one was injured as a result of prescription error, it is your right to seek compensatory damages for:

  • Hospital and emergency room bills, medical bills, therapy, and treatment
  • Pain and suffering experienced by the injured party
  • Lack of enjoyment of the pleasures of daily life that were once normal
  • Lost past, present and future income
  • Loss of marital relations with your spouse
  • Other forms of compensation – discuss this with your attorney
