Warwick & Newport, Rhode Island, Medication Overdose Attorney
Dosage Error Lawyer Serving Rhode Island, Massachusetts & New York
When a doctor writes a prescription, he or she is expected to determine the correct dosage that is safe for a patient’s use. It is the pharmacist’s responsibility to fill the prescription correctly and the hospital staff’s responsibility to administer the correct dose. If it is not, it can be extremely dangerous for the patient. While a patient receiving too small a dose can present its own set of problems, receiving too high a dosage can be much more serious.
Depending on the type of drug you have been prescribed, an overdose can result in a broad range of serious health issues and can sometimes be fatal. If you or a loved one has suffered any kind of ill effect due to a medication error, you should seek the advice of an experienced Warwick medication overdose lawyer to see if you have grounds for a medical malpractice claim.
