Do I Have a Medication Error Case?
When prescribed and administered properly, medications are often a huge part of a person’s recovery or other wellness needs. On the other hand, when the wrong medication or dosage is given, serious complications can result – even death. According to the FDA, one in five dosages given to hospital patients are incorrect, and medication errors cause about 7,000 deaths and hundreds of thousands of injuries each year in the U.S. If you have a medication error claim in West Palm Beach or surrounding areas and need experienced legal representation, our Florida medical malpractice attorneys are here for you.
