Medication errors can happen many different ways in a nursing home. We handle all types of claims involving negligence or carelessness in dispensing drugs, including cases involving

  • the wrong medicine. We handle claims where nurses or caregivers provide the wrong medication to a resident or patient.
  • too much or too little medication. Dosage errors can lead to serious health problems, even death. We litigate claims involving over-prescription, as well as cases where nursing home employees administer the wrong amount.
  • failure to gather all necessary medical information. If a nursing home failed to obtain a complete medical history, and health complications occur because of food interactions or allergies, we will help you recover compensation for your injuries.
  • prescription errors or miscommunication between doctors, nurses or other healthcare providers. Often, patients or residents receive the wrong amount or type of medication because of poor handwriting, misspellings, incorrect abbreviations or mislabeling of pharmaceuticals.

We take cases involving all types of injuries, from stroke, heart attack, poisoning, infection or other concerns to wrongful death.

We handle all nursing home abuse cases on a contingent fee basis. We will only bill attorney fees if we recover compensation for your injuries.
