New York City Medication Error Attorneys
Every year, thousands of patients’ lives are put at risk from medication errors. The incorrect dosage or wrong prescription can have an adverse effect, putting patients in an even more serious condition. If you of your loved one was given the wrong prescription or your doctor failed to take into account the combination of drugs that could have a negative effect, you may be able to pursue a medical malpractice claim for any damages you have endured.
We Do Not Shy Away From Handling Complex Medication Error Claims
Medical malpractice claims are highly complicated. Health care professionals are not expected to perform miracles — not every negative outcome is the result of medical malpractice. The right attorney will know how to effectively handle cases based on this fine line. At Weisfuse & Weisfuse, LLP, we have more than 40 years of experience proving fault against negligent medical professionals. We know the difference between a medical mistake and malpractice. If your health care provider put your life at risk by overlooking standard medical procedures, we will not hesitate to seek damages.

Proving Fault Against Medical Providers for Prescription Errors
Pharmaceutical drugs can cause serious and life-threatening conditions when:
- Wrong dosage is prescribed
- Patients are given the wrong prescription drugs
- Doctors fail to take into account allergic reactions
- Doctors overlook the negative effect of a combination of drugs
At Weisfuse & Weisfuse, LLP, all of our medical malpractice claims are prepared with enough evidence to prove fault in trial. We consult medical experts and pharmacists who are invaluable in helping us evaluate claims to understand if standard medical procedures were overlooked. We also conduct thorough investigations to understand who is responsible for the medication error.
Many medical professionals, including primary care physicians, operating doctors, hospital nurses, and pharmacists, interact with patients. Our New York City medication error attorneys evaluate every angle possible to understand whether the prescription errors resulted from the doctors’ illegible handwriting, failure to fill the right prescription, or failure to prescribe the right dosage. We carefully evaluate our clients’ medical history, current drug intake, and other medical factors when preparing claims for a favorable trial verdict. Insurance adjusters know we are ready to take them on, and they often make full settlement offers to avoid going up against us in trial.
