If I threw away the medication that I got in error, can I still file a malpractice claim in Louisville with an attorney?

Request Your Free Consultation

You may still file a medication error malpractice claim in Louisville Kentucky if you trashed the medication. Since you can still gain the necessary documentation to prove the medication error, you can file a medical malpractice claim. An attorney should be sought to help you gather the evidence you need to build a solid claim. 

If you have not already done so, seek medical attention if you have taken the wrong medication or dose prescribed to you. You could suffer adverse effects, which may need immediate medical treatment. 

The next step is to list all of the medications you have been taking, as well as the ones you have received in error. Contact the pharmacy for a copy of the medication information you threw away. This way, you will at least have documentation that shows the mistake took place. 

In order to also build a successful case, you should gather documents that contain your medical history. You should also keep or gather any other reports that indicate you suffered adverse effects from taking the wrong medication. 

By having an attorney on your side, you can have help acquiring the rest of the pertinent materials, which includes: 

  • Affidavits;
  • Expert witnesses;
  • Records from the healthcare professional (usually retrieved with a subpoena); and
  • Professional records of the doctor who prescribed your medication
