Do I have grounds for a medication error claim?
The use of prescription medication is widespread in New York and nationwide, and countless people in our country depend on pharmaceutical drugs to cure illnesses, keep their symptoms in check or to relieve their chronic pain. Unfortunately, it is common for a doctor to fail to diagnose a condition properly, with the result of either prescribing the wrong drug or prescribing an incorrect amount. Similarly, a pharmacist may make mistakes in filling a patient's prescription and in providing the individual with a different medication than the one which is required to treat the condition.
