Milwaukee Prescription Error Lawyers
We understand how frustrating it is when you’ve done everything that you can do to take care of your health and still you need to consult a Wisconsin prescription error lawyer. It is important to know that you are not alone. The Institute of Medicine estimates that there are 1.5 million people injured or killed each year due to medication errors. One common type of medication error is misfilled prescriptions. A prescription error occurs when the wrong drug, the wrong dose or the wrong administration method is provided to the patient. The error can be the fault of the prescribing doctor or the pharmacist who fills the prescription and either party may be sued for malpractice if the error results in physical harm or death to the patient.
The Wisconsin prescription lawyers of Pasternak & Zirgibel understand that prescription errors can be as dangerous as surgical errors or misdiagnoses and we are committed to helping victims recover the damages to which they are entitled under Wisconsin law.
What to Expect When You Contact a Wisconsin Prescription Error Lawyer
Your first meeting with a Wisconsin wrong prescription lawyer will be a free consultation to discuss what happened to you. Your Wisconsin misfilled prescription lawyer will ask questions about what the correct prescription should have been, the prescription you received and the harm that the medication error caused to you. While you technically have three years to file a lawsuit alleging that you were hurt because of someone’s negligence in providing you an incorrect prescription, it is best to contact a
Milwaukee prescription error attorney as soon as possible so that together you can work toward your recovery.
How a Milwaukee Prescription Error Attorney Can Help You
