Doctors prescribe medications to help patients with health conditions. However, many patients actually die from prescription errors. In fact, prescription errors cause 1.5 million injuries every year, with 100,000 resulting in wrongful death. If someone you love has died a wrongful death due to a prescription error, you have legal rights and may be entitled to compensation. Contact a Louisville medical error lawyer for more details.
Doctors and pharmacists have a duty to help patients and protect them from harm. If they are negligent in their actions and cause a patient to die because of a prescription error, the family of the victim can bring about a wrongful death lawsuit. An award from a lawsuit can pay for things such as medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of income, and loss of companionship.
If you believe your loved one died a wrongful death, contact a lawyer right away to review your case. An attorney can help you uncover evidence to determine who is at fault, file a lawsuit for damages, and hold the doctor or pharmacist accountable.
