Medication Errors

The right medication can be wonderful, even lifesaving. But because medications are so powerful, they can also be dangerous when prescribed or administered incorrectly. Medical professionals are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of prescription medication, and can be held liable when they are negligent in their actions.

If you live in or near Mansfield, Ohio, The Heck Law Offices, Ltd., can help you seek compensation for illnesses or injuries caused by medication errors.

How Do Medication Errors Happen?

A prescription medication may be perfectly safe in itself but harmful if used improperly. Medication errors may be caused by, but are not limited to:

  • Failure to monitor dosages or drug combinations
  • Allergic or adverse reactions
  • Mislabeling of prescriptions or medicine pumps
  • Illegible handwriting on prescriptions
  • Miscommunication between health care professionals

Every medical professional involved in handling your prescription can be found negligent: from the prescribing physician, to the pharmacy employee who measures and labels the medication, and the nurses and other hospital staff who administer it. At The Heck Law Offices, Ltd., our team will conduct a careful investigation to understand what went wrong, when it went wrong and who is responsible. Attorney Heck is a zealous advocate who has a history of trial success — he will fight for your rights.
