Common Medication Mistakes & Their Effects

Medications provide effective ways to treat pain, manage various medical conditions, and prevent disease. When administered and taken properly, they are typically very safe, though all medications have some side effects. However, when medical professionals are negligent, innocent patients can suffer grave consequences.

Some of the most common medication errors include:

  • Over-dosage
  • Under-dosage
  • Administering the wrong medication
  • Giving medication to the wrong patient
  • Failure to account for patient’s medical history
  • Failure to warn of side effects
  • Failure to identify potential drug interactions
  • Miscommunication between prescribing doctor and pharmacist/nurse

The effects of these and other medication mistakes can range from severe pain and worsening conditions to ineffective medication and, in severe cases, death.

Compensation for Affected Individuals

If you or your loved one was affected by a medication error, you can seek compensation for your damages. In legal terms, “damages” are any hardships—economic or otherwise—you suffered as a result of negligence.

You may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Medical bills incurred from additional treatment
  • Lost income/wages from time taken off work to receive treatment and/or heal
  • Reduced or lost earning ability (also known as disability)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress/trauma

In North Carolina, you may also seek punitive damages when a medical professional’s conduct was egregiously negligent. Punitive damages are meant to punish the negligent party and prevent similar incidents from occurring again in the future.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
