Medication errors can cause serious harm to patients. They can happen in hospitals, doctor's offices, walk-in clinics, long-term care homes or directly from a pharmacy.
There are all kinds of different ways in which a medication error can happen. It could be you received the wrong medication that caused you harm. Maybe the dose of the drug was too high or too low. Perhaps you had a medication allergy or reaction that your healthcare provider knew or ought to have known about.
If you are concerned that you or a loved one may have been harmed as a result of a medication error, you should speak with a lawyer to know your legal rights. Compensation may be available but the law in this area can be challenging and you should speak with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to know your options.
Toronto medical malpractice lawyer Paul Cahill has years of experience representing patients in lawsuits against hospitals, nurses and doctors for medication errors. Paul was recently guest speaker on the subject of medication errors on the popular healthcare podcast Inside Medical Malpractice.
