Prescription Drug Errors
Baltimore Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Each year, over 700,000 trips to the emergency room are the result of medication errors. Whether due to instances involving incorrect dosage, inappropriate prescription, or even an allergic reaction, the effects can be disastrous, causing serious health problems, including death. Dosage issues are known in the medical community as a "never event," or an event so preventable and severe that it should never happen.
Pharmacists, nurses, and other medical professionals have a duty to provide you with competent care. When they fail, you have the right to pursue justice and financial compensation for your injuries. Since 1948, Murphy, Falcon & Murphy has fought for communities throughout Baltimore, Maryland, and across the nation. We use the law to protect and defend disenfranchised, ignored, and mistreated individuals, including those who have suffered from medication errors.
