Recovering For Victims Of Prescription Drug Mistakes
Doctors and psychiatrists prescribe medications specific to a patient’s particular needs, whether to treat illness, manage pain, or address his or her particular health conditions. You trust your health care provider to prescribe medications that will help you get better or manage your well-being. Therefore, when prescription errors lead to further injury or wrongful death, you may naturally feel devastated and perhaps betrayed.
At Nagel Rice, LLP, we believe in holding responsible parties accountable for injuries or death caused by prescription errors. Whether mistakes were made by your doctor or psychiatrist, pharmacist, pharmacy technician or even prescription manufacturers, we pursue the highest amount of compensation possible on your behalf.

Common Prescription Drug Errors
Because each prescription corresponds to a particular patient’s needs, medication errors made by doctors when prescribing medications or by pharmacists can result in tragic consequences, including allergic reactions, new illnesses or wrongful death. Some of the more common prescription errors our firm has handled include:
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Prescribing the wrong dosage
- Failure to consider possible side effects or allergies based on patient records
- Failure to disclose possible life-threatening side effects or symptoms to watch for
- Computer-based errors leading to misdiagnosis or inaccurate dosages
