Pittsburgh Attorneys Handle Medication Error Cases Caused by Medical Malpractice

Modern medicine has given us numerous medications that can treat a wide variety of conditions and diseases. When prescription and administration of medication are done correctly, medication can obviously be highly beneficial to the patient. However, if a medication error does occur, prescription medications can have serious and even life-threatening consequences for a patient. Most medication errors occur when there is a breakdown in communication among physicians, pharmacists, and nurses, or when those providers fail to exercise due care to confirm the safety and efficacy of medication being prescribed or administered to a patient. When healthcare providers’ negligence results in a medication error, an injured patient may be entitled to pursue a medical malpractice claim.  The Pittsburgh medication error lawyers at Goodrich & Geist, P.C. help victims of medication errors and their families seek compensation and justice.

Our attorneys thoroughly investigate your case to determine how your medication error occurred so that we can hold the appropriate parties responsible for your injuries and damages. We believe that helping you and your family to obtain compensation for your injuries sends a message to hospitals and healthcare providers that medication errors will not be tolerated and encourages them to exercise the appropriate care in prescribing and administering medication to patients.
