You Were Prescribed the Wrong Medication
Many instances of being prescribed the wrong drugs are the result of careless behavior. Whether the prescription was illegible to read or your pharmacist simply provided the improper strength of medication, inaccurately prescribed drugs can lead to serious consequences for your health and wellbeing.
You Were Not Sufficiently Warned About Adverse Side Effects
It is not uncommon for a new drug to be recalled. When a pharmaceutical company is eager to put their product on the market, it is possible that certain reactions and side effects are overlooked until they begin to cause health problems for patients. If you suffered severe side effects that you were not warned about, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice case.
You Were Given the Wrong Instructions
A simple oversight on your prescription could result in tragic circumstances. For instance, if your doctor accidentally prescribes you the wrong dosage, you could be at risk for a deadly overdose. Healthcare professionals are trusted because of their medical expertise and privileges. When those privileges are used carelessly and your health is adversely affected as a result, you should receive fair compensation for your suffering.
