Which party can I hold liable for my mother’s fatal overdose?

The Law Office of Kennedy Hodges is saddened to hear of your loss. If your mother’s passing was caused by a fatal overdose, there could be many possible parties to blame. Depending upon where and how the overdose occurred can help determine the number of parties that could be held responsible in your pharmacy malpractice case.

Many injuries and fatalities that occur as a result of malpractice happen because nurses, doctors, and pharmacists fail to provide a duty of care to patients. Those who prescribe drugs and administer drugs have a duty to ensure the correct drug and the right dosages are provided. Unfortunately, people can be in a hurry and fail to double check prescriptions for accuracy.

For example, if your mother was given too high of a dose of a drug in the hospital and died as a result, then the hospital could be to blame. In the event your mother suffered fatal injuries as a result of negligence on the part of a hospital employee, the hospital as well as the negligent party could hold different percentages of the blame. In the event a doctor wrote out a correct prescription and a pharmacist filled the wrong dose—a fatal dose—a pharmacist and pharmacy could be liable for the death of your loved one. As you can see, there are many possible negligent parties you could file a claim against.

To find out which specific party or multiple parties that your family may have a claim against, contact a qualified Texas pharmacy malpractice attorney at Kennedy Hodges today for a free initial consultation at 888-526-7616.
