In a medication error case you need to first prove the doctor/ pharmacist/ anesthesiologist and/or any other medical professional failed to do their job properly which a similarly trained and knowledgeable health professional would have done in the similar situation.
Medical errors can happen in the hospital during a medical examination, an operation, treatment or by over the counter (OTC) drugs or during powerful treatments like chemotherapy and related pain killing medication. Medicines can become deadly if they are administered at the wrong dosage.
In a treatment process the medication errors can happen at any point of time and at multiple times and stages. Errors, miscommunication, incorrect dosage etc all can result in medical error. Sometimes the patients(s) are neglected, their dosage isn’t administered on time or their medication is monitored.
This also leads to fatal accidents and can be termed a medical error. Any medical malpractice harming the patient can become the basis for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
To win the case, the complainant will need to establish that due to the substandard care of the medical professional they faced injury or death of a loved one. An experienced medical malpractice attorney will be able to clearly explain the case to you and your chances in winning it as the medical malpractice cases are really complex with testimony of expert medical witnesses and the presentation of complicated medical evidence. The knowledgeable attorney will help you overcome all the hurdles in your case.
