Pittsburgh Attorneys Handling Medication Error Claims

The prescription and administration of medicine to treat illness or stabilize a medical condition can present severe problems for the patient if not carefully handled at every stage from selecting the medication and dosage to the point of administering it to the patient. For experienced and skilled representation in medical malpractice cases involving medication errors, contact Biancheria & Maliver P.C. for a free consultation and assessment of your claims.

Although drug interaction and allergy problems formerly accounted for many problems with prescription medications, more frequent medication errors, today, involve misjudged balances and dosages of otherwise effective and well-selected drugs. Mismanaged anticoagulant medication can result in death, and improperly administered antibiotics such as gentamicin can cause serious damage to the ears or kidneys, to name just a few.

Pennsylvania Demerol And Dilaudid Lawyer

Pain relief medication is very often mismanaged, even in hospitals and clinical settings. Patient-controlled analgesia is frequently poorly monitored and dosed. Hospital overdoses of opiates such as Demerol or Dilaudid can also result in death.

Pharmacies and pharmacists can be just as responsible for medication errors as physicians and hospitals. Misread prescriptions or careless attention to the proper dosage can result in blatant errors, such as preparing 350 mg capsules, rather than the 35 mg intended by the doctor.

At the law firm of Biancheria & Maliver P.C., our medical malpractice attorneys are experienced with the investigation and proof of claims related to medication errors. Whether the mistake was committed by a doctor, a nurse or a pharmacist, our familiarity with the presentation of evidence as to liability and damages can make a decisive difference in favor of your claim.
