I was given the wrong medication at a hospital and suffered seizures. Do I have a case for medication malpractice?

If you were given the wrong medication by a nurse, doctor, or hospital pharmacist and you suffered seizures, you most likely have a case for pharmaceutical malpractice. While you may not consider a seizure to be a serious side-effect of getting the incorrect medication, it is serious, as they may cause further damage to your health.

Although rare, a severe seizure can cause brain damage; however, usually multiple severe seizures are needed to cause this type of injury. Your doctor should conduct an electroencephalogram (EEG) following your seizure, and the hospital should be responsible for your medical costs associated with this medication error.

When patients are put at needless risk due to a pharmacy error or negligence on the part of a nurse or doctor, hospitals should be held accountable. Healthcare workers have a duty of care to patients and shouldn’t cause patients further harm. While we understand all humans make mistakes, health care workers have to be diligent so that medication and pharmacy errors don’t occur and cause injuries to patients.

An experienced pharmacy malpractice attorney can help you bring a claim against the hospital for your medical bills, hospital expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. It is critical to hold the negligent party responsible so that these errors don’t continue to occur. Additionally, if you do need ongoing medical care, you deserve adequate compensation so that you receive the treatment you need.
