BWO Triumphs in Wrong Medication Lawsuit Settlement

Buchanan, Williams, & O’Brien Attorneys at Law recently won a wrong medication lawsuit settlement for a client. Our client was in the hospital and received medication in the form of a shot from the medical providers. Unfortunately, the medication belonged to another client who was infected with Hepatitis C, an infectious disease that can be life-threatening.

First, our client tried to resolve the matter without an attorney but found he could not. He hired attorneys from BWO and let us take over the wrong medication lawsuit settlement case.

BWO immediately secured the relevant medical records, thoroughly reviewed them, and mapped out a strategy for compensation. BWO was able to get the hospital to provide compensation to the client in an amount that reflected what they had done. Our attorneys have years of knowledge and expertise in protecting our customers’ rights in many different personal injury cases.

Medical Malpractice and Medical Negligence

Winning a wrong medication lawsuit settlement is complicated, both because of the laws involved and the proof required, which will likely involve obtaining and interpreting medical records. Two key areas of law involved in wrong medication lawsuits are medical malpractice and medical negligence.

A physician can only be found responsible in a wrong medication lawsuit if he or she — not somebody else, like the nurse, pharmacist, or drug production firm — is the person who really made the error. This may be a fairly intricate detail to establish. In a wrong medication lawsuit settlement or any medical malpractice actions, in order for the litigation to be workable, you need to verify that the physician’s actions really pertain to medical negligence.

In order to prove liability and win a wrong medication lawsuit settlement, you must demonstrate that the physician was negligent in prescribing a specific medicine. To do so, you are required to prove:

  1. What the medical standard of care was in your case
  2. How your physician did not adhere to the standard of care
  3. The way you had been harmed as an outcome

Depending on the circumstances, you might pursue a wrong medication lawsuit settlement against a different entity other than your physician. Drug companies can generate tainted or dangerous medicines. Nurses may administer the incorrect dose or someone else’s medication, like in the case of BWO’s client. A pharmacist may fill the wrong prescription or share incorrect instructions for taking the medicine.

If you think that you were prescribed the wrong medicine and you suffered adverse effects, you need to talk to a lawyer experienced in wrong medication lawsuit settlements as soon as possible.
