If your child was the victim of a prescription medication error in Kentucky, there is absolutely no time to delay action. You should immediately contact a lawyer who has not only handled prescription errors before, but cases involving prescription errors with children in Louisville. A medication mistake can leave your child severely ill or develop a sickness that could be fatal.

As a parent, you and your family are entitled to file suit on behalf of your child for damages as a result of any prescription error that constitutes physical, emotional, or financial distress.

It’s important that you take action quickly because the medical malpractice statute of limitations in Kentucky only gives you 1 year from the date the malpractice occurred – or a year from the date you should have known that malpractice occurred. This means that as soon as you suspect an error, you should speak to an attorney who will investigate the facts of your case and determine if there is a basis for a negligence case.  

This statute applies to all cases of medical malpractice, whether the error was made at a doctor’s office, hospital, or pharmacy. If you should lose your child due to a medical error, this statute of limitations is extended to 2 years in some cases.

Should your child suffer a medication error, contact an attorney who has experience handling medical malpractice claims and medication mistake suits. Your family may be entitled to damages for any current and future medical costs, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life. Your child deserves justice – let an attorney help you get it.
