When a doctor, nurse or other medical professional prescribes or administers the wrong medication to their patient the results can be catastrophic, or even deadly. In fact, according to a 2006 report by the Institute of Medicine and National Academies, more than 1.5 million people are harmed every year due to medication errors and the negligence of their medical professional.
At Spencer Calahan Injury Lawyers, we have been representing victims of medical malpractice and medication errors. We have a proven track record with representing victims of allergic reactions to wrong medication. This is because we understand the complexities of these types of cases and know that the effects of medication errors can go far beyond the initial reactions.
Allergic Reactions Due To Medication
Errors with medication can happen anytime from the initial manufacturing of the medication to the point in which it is wrongly prescribed to the patient. From wrong ingredients to improper dosage, allergic reactions and other adverse effects from medication errors can be varied and may include:
- Rashes & other skin irritations
- Temporary discomfort
- Eye irritations
- Severe allergic reactions
- Labored breathing
- Permanent disabilities
If you feel you or a loved one has suffered due to medication errors or allergic reactions from improper diagnosis and treatment, it is your responsibility to bring the guilty parties to justice. And while financial compensation cannot always help with your loss, it is the best course of action we have to ensure the medical professionals pay for their negligence.
