Doctors make mistakes, but when they do, it can be dangerous. If you’re
prescribed the wrong medication and it ends up causing you harm, you may
have the option to file a medical malpractice claim to pay for damages
resulting from your injuries. However, a doctor is only liable if they
are the one who makes the mistake. Below we’ll discuss the parties
that you may be able to sue for a
Physician or Nurse
The doctor may be held responsible only if they made an error in choosing
the prescription. These mistakes happen more often than you may believe
and they constitute medical malpractice, which may open the physician
up to a lawsuit. A nurse attending a patient can also be negligent in
administering medication and be sued for medical malpractice.
A patient who is in the hospital usually has their prescriptions filled
by the hospital pharmacy. If a pharmacist or technician incorrectly fills
the prescription or mislabels it, then they may be liable for any injuries
resulting from the error.

medical malpractice case. If you hire one of our experienced
