Were You Injured By A Medication Error?

Modern pharmaceuticals can solve health problems that only a few years ago were thought to be chronic and incurable. But an error made while prescribing, dispensing or administering a medication can cause serious or even fatal injuries.

At the Manchin Injury Law Group in Fairmont, we vigorously represent victims of medication errors and other types of medical negligence. Our attorneys are skilled advocates with a record of success in these types of cases. When representing you, we will work tirelessly to show how the medical services provided failed to meet the expected standard of care.

Medication Errors Can Have Serious Consequences

Medication errors in hospitals, clinical settings and nursing homes can happen in several ways:

  • A doctor or nurse practitioner can prescribe the wrong medication or the wrong dosage.
  • A doctor, nurse practitioner or pharmacist can fail to heed warnings against possible drug interactions.
  • A pharmacist can dispense the wrong medication or wrong dosage.
  • A nurse can fail to administer a medication properly, by skipping a dose or double dosing a patient.
  • A nurse can fail to properly perform a medical reconciliation when admitting or discharging a patient.

While most medication errors do not cause harm, a small number do — and those can have a devastating effect on the health and lives of patients.
