Long Island Medical Malpractice Lawyer Identifies the Consequences of Medication Errors
The effects of medication errors can be quite bad. A person who is given a medication they shouldn’t have in the first place, as in a misdiagnosis, may have permanent physical damage of some kind. Strong medicines can have many different side effects such as changes in the heart rate or blood pressure. Some may cause strokes or even brain damage. Similar bad effects can result from prescribing too much of a medicine. A medical practitioner who makes a medication error can be shown in a court of law by a lawyer to have been negligent.
Negligence is what the judge will use in determining what compensation should be awarded. There can also be negligence if there was some flaw in the medication such as a flaw in the manufacture of it.
