Prescription mistakes can result in serious injury in one of three ways:

  • Adverse reaction to the wrong drug: Perilous side effects in people who should not take a specific drug, or dangerous interactions with other medications the patient is taking.
  • Being deprived of the correct medicine: Dolan Dobrinsky Rosenblum, LLP lawyers represented the family of a man who died of a stroke when he was administered anti seizure medicines instead of the high blood pressure drug he needed.
  • Too much, or not enough of the right drug: A supercharged or insufficient dosage may cause a violent allergic reaction, sometimes leading to brain injury, paralysis, heart attack or death.
