There are many different types of pharmaceutical errors for which a health care provider may be held accountable, the most common of which fall into the following categories:
Most of the time, these pharmaceutical errors are rooted in a lack of qualified staff, inadequate training, poor communication, or plain old carelessness.
To be successful in your lawsuit, you will have to prove that the medication error was rooted in some type of medical negligence. In the law’s eyes, this means proving three elements:
It is important to note that simply having a bad reaction to a medication does not warrant a claim on its own. You have to prove that the health care provider who prescribed you that medication either knew or should have known it may cause a bad reaction, either due to a known allergy or underlying condition.
