Medication mistakes can be the result of a number of common errors, including:
An error can also occur if a pharmacist gives out the wrong medication because the doctor who wrote the prescription had bad or illegible handwriting.
There are many steps in the medication process, which creates many opportunities for these kinds of mistakes to occur. Medication errors can occur when medications are being administered or when healthcare professionals are monitoring the side effects of a drug.

Medical malpractice lawsuits are very complex cases that require a wealth of evidence to prove that a healthcare professional was negligent in their handling of your health. In order to do this, you must prove several things, including:
Physician-patient relationship: Your medication error lawyer must prove that you hired the healthcare provider and that the they agreed to treat you. You can only file a lawsuit for malpractice that was committed within the scope of their employment.
Violation of duty of care: Your attorney must also prove that your healthcare provider had a duty of care to you and that they broke this duty. If they did not act as another professional would have in a similar situation, they have violated their duty of care.
Causation: You have to prove a causal relationship between your injury and the negligence of your doctor, physician or other healthcare provider. You need to show that the breach of the duty of care was the proximate cause of your injury.
Damages: Did your injury result in medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering or damage to your future earning potential? A court will not hold a healthcare professional liable unless you can prove that your injury led to economic or emotional damages.
