Example Cases of Medication Errors

One lawsuit involved a young girl who had dropped a glass of Kool-Aid on her toe, severing her tendon and was taken to an emergency room for treatment. Contrary to ER policy, physicians elected to repair her tendon in the emergency room and gave her too much medication to sedate her. She went into respiratory failure, and she ended up massively brain damaged.

Sometimes, mistakes are caught in time. A client of this law firm was on blood pressure medications. By mistake, when the doctor prescribed a change in his blood pressure medicine, he was given a drug with a similar name—but it was the wrong drug. His blood pressure began to go out of control, and he had to be hospitalized. Fortunately, the error was caught in time before he was seriously injured.
