Medication Errors

Medication Errors And Incorrect Prescriptions

Doctors, pharmacists, and other health care providers can make mistakes when prescribing and administering medications, sometimes resulting in serious injury or other complications to a patient’s treatment. Whether the mistake occurred by sheer negligence or a misdiagnosis, it can result in making a patient even sicker than they were before. Not only does the patient’s physical health suffer, but they also face financial burdens due to increased medical treatments to counteract the damage that has been caused.

You shouldn’t have to pay for the medical negligence of another! The Honolulu medical malpractice lawyers at Turbin Chu Heidt can help you build a strong case to hold health care providers liable for damages caused by serious medication mistakes. We have a history of obtaining favorable settlements, including millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.
