Medication Errors in New Jersey

Fotolia_74198154_M-1-300x214.jpgWhen you go to the doctor or you are admitted to the hospital because of an illness or a routine procedure, you expect that you will receive excellent care from trusted medical professionals. You never think that you will be prescribed the improper medication or administered the incorrect dosage by a nurse. These instances can have negative effects on your health that can cause further illness or even death.

While it may have been completely unintentional, improper treatment by a medical professional should not be taken lightly. If you have been the victim of a medication error in New Jersey, you may take legal action against the responsible party. They may be held liable for covering the medical expenses of the initial treatment as well as any further medical treatment you may have had to receive as a direct result of the error. In addition, you may be entitled to compensation for any pain and suffering you endured as a result of the medication error.

Unfortunately, there are situations when a medication error results in death. If this is the case, a loved one of the person who died may bring a lawsuit against the responsible party. In a wrongful death case such as this, you may also be able to be compensated for the funeral expenses of your loved one. Unexpected deaths can put a family into financial turmoil because of the high costs associated with the death.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a medication error, you should seek strong and dedicated legal representation with an experienced medical malpractice attorney at Cohn, Lifland, Pearlman, Herrmann, & Knopf, LLP.
