How Jacobs & Jacobs Handles Medication Error Cases

In a case where someone was injured or killed because of medication errors, there are many potentially liable parties, including:

  • The prescribing physician: He or she may have failed to check for allergic reactions, may have prescribed the wrong drug, may have written a prescription for the wrong amount of the drug, or may have failed to communicate special instructions to administering nurses
  • The pharmacist and/or pharmacy: Those dispensing the medication could be responsible for delivering the wrong medication or failing to screen or give clear dosage instructions.
  • A hospital, nursing home and/or nurse responsible for administering an overdose or a wrong medication
  • An anesthesiologist responsible for delivering correct amounts of anesthesia during surgery
  • A pharmaceutical manufacturer that knowingly put consumers at risk with a defective drug
