Fresno Pharmaceutical Error Attorney
Overview of Pharmaceutical Errors
Prescriptions, over-the-counter (OTC) medications and the like are meant to help improve a patient's health and healing. However, this can only succeed if the drug is manufactured and/or prescribed correctly. Should a manufacturer or doctor make a mistake, the patient could suffer serious injury or illness due to such negligence. Speak with a Fresno injury lawyer about these incidents.
The Food and Drug Administration defines medication errors as "any preventable event that may cause or lead to inappropriate medication use or patient harm while the medication is in the control of the health care professional, patient, or consumer." The manufacturing process for drugs and medications is very precise. Even the slightest mistake in measurement could cause illness or overdose. Also, if one or more of the ingredients is wrong, it could cause a harmful chemical reaction that injures the patient. As for doctors, they have great responsibility when it comes to prescribing medication. If they prescribe the wrong drug or prescribe too high of a dosage, then injury, illness or
wrongful death could occur.
