Medication Errors

Medication Errors As our population ages, more and more people rely on medications to maintain their health. But, it is not just the elderly who need medicines. Children with childhood illnesses, pregnant women, diabetics of all ages, post-surgical patients and people in chronic pain rely on their doctors to properly diagnose their illnesses and to prescribe the proper medicine in the proper dose that will address those illnesses. They rely on pharmacists to use caution in filling their prescriptions.

A doctor should consider many questions when he or she prescribes medicine for a patient. What is the patient's illness? What is the best medication to prescribe? What is the proper dosage? What other prescription or over-the-counter medications is the patient taking that might adversely interact with the prescribed medicine? Sometimes, preventable errors occur in prescribing and filling prescriptions. Those errors may result in serious injuries or even death.

Medication error malpractice claims are complex and require an expert review.  In reviewing cases of improperly prescribed or improperly filled prescriptions, we carefully evaluate the patient's medical conditions and medication history. We read medical textbooks to determine how the medicine should have been prescribed. If a preventable error has happened, we aggressively seek fair compensation for the patient who is a victim of a medication error.

My 15-year-old son suffered a life-altering closed head injury that left him disabled for life when he was injured in a truck accident. I went to Mike Miller for help. Mike and the law firm were the greatest people I have ever been around. Everything they did was excellent, above and beyond the call of duty. They were able to recover enough to let me leave my job and devote full time care for my son. To this day, they are more than happy to talk with me and take care of anything that comes up. J.M.
Words cannot express how tremendously grateful my husband and I are to Nate and his team during the most difficult times in our lives. He walked us through every step with the up most respect, never hesitating to answer any and all questions, or simply giving us a word of encouragement. It was a relief to know that he was always on our side, fighting for our case and believing that it was worth fighting for. C.L.
A patient with a stroke was not transferred to a hospital capable of treating her. The client said, "We worked with Brad Kallmyer who was phenomenal. He listened well and was very thorough and professional. I give all the credit to Brad. The staff was very kind, very understanding. They made my mom feel important. Brad's integrity and the firm came through for us. They were great." C.M.
Scott did a truly amazing job for us. It was not just about the legal work; he was there for us every step of the way. From rehab, through settlement and even making sure appropriate financial arrangements were in place for the future. He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman's comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband. Now, he will be taken care of for the rest of his life. T.R.
