Our experienced Laughlin, Nevada medical malpractice attorneys at Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen understand just how devastating medication mistakes can be, and how the lifelong effects of being prescribed the wrong medication or dosage can affect your overall health.

Serious injuries can occur when medication errors happen, as patients can be hospitalized or suffer permanent side-effects. Sadly, some of these medication mistakes can even cause death, leaving families reeling from a preventable circumstance. No matter how your medical malpractice occurred, our Clark County and Laughlin personal injury attorneys can provide the representation you need to hold the responsible party accountable for the damages.

Do Medication Errors Happen Frequently in the U.S.?

According to the Food and Drug Administration, there are more 1,300,000 people in the United States who are injured by medication errors annually.

Our Laughlin, Nevada medical malpractice lawyers know that even one injury from a medication error is too many. The reality is, it can happen to anyone. And if it has happened to you or someone in your family, we can help you pursue financial recovery from the medical source who caused your injury.

What Are the Most Common Medication Errors Reported in the United States?

Medication errors are very serious incidents and depending on the medication prescribed and where the mistake occurred, the person taking the medication can suffer moderate to severe to life-changing injuries.

The most common medication errors occur from:

  • Improper dosing errors
  • Incorrect administration technique errors
  • Prescribing errors
  • Wrong drug preparation errors

In addition, when a lack of communication exists between the prescribing physician and other healthcare professionals, medication errors can occur without notice, leaving victims significantly harmed by the effects. Our Laughlin medical malpractice attorneys can help locate the source of your injury and hold that person, party, or company responsible.

How Can Medical Mistakes Occur So Frequently?

The prescription drug industry is increasingly complex, and the number of areas where medication errors can occur is even more complicated.

Medical errors can be related to professional practice or health care products, procedures, or systems, including the medications:

  • Administration
  • Dispensing
  • Distribution
  • Order communication
  • Packaging
  • Prescribing
  • Product labeling
