Medication Error Attorneys

Prescribing physicians, pharmacists and nursing staff all share the responsibility to properly treat patients with prescription medications. Sometimes the staff at a hospital, nursing home or residential healthcare facility commit serious medication errors that can harm the very people they are supposed to protect.

Medication errors can have devastating effects, including brain damage, nerve damage, kidney damage or liver damage. If you believe that you or a family member was seriously injured or a loved one died as a result of receiving the wrong prescription or an overdose, contact an attorney at our law firm in Toledo soon.

Legal Help For Victims Of Medication Errors Or Pharmacy Mistakes In Ohio

Many clients come to the Law Offices of Gary Osborne & Associates in search of answers to why a medication error occurred. They are more interested in holding doctors and nursing personnel accountable than they are in the idea of obtaining financial compensation. In fact, part of a successful medical malpractice claim or lawsuit is often the requirement of a documented action plan by a healthcare institution to put systems in place to prevent future medication errors.

At the same time, injured clients and their families often have very real financial needs as a result of serious medication errors. Medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation, long-term care and in some cases, funeral expenses and loss of income may threaten to bankrupt a family. Family members may experience extraordinary grief and suffering as a result of their loved one's unnecessary death.
