The Dangers of Prescription Errors

A prescription error can leave a patient with severe ailments and a need for immediate treatment to counter these drug effects. Doctors and pharmacists have a responsibility to follow several regulations before prescribing a medication to a patient, including verifying that the information on the prescription is correct and the dosage is appropriate for the person. When doctors and pharmacists fail to take all these necessary precautions, they may seriously endanger their patients.

At the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter, we believe in providing our Dallas clients with a strong voice in their pharmaceutical error claims. After suffering through such a situation due to a medical professional’s negligence, you might be owed much-needed financial compensation and filing a lawsuit is often a necessary step to getting this compensation.

The Harm that a Prescription Error Can Cause

When a prescription error is made, it can affect a person using the medication in several ways, including causing the following:

  • A possible life-threatening overdose
  • The original health concern to grow worse
  • Severe side effects

These and other repercussions all too often accompany a prescription error, leaving people suffering from immense physical, emotional, and financial burdens.
