It is estimated that 7,000 people die each year from medication errors, either because they are administered the wrong drug or are administered the right drug in the wrong dosage. Medication errors can occur in hospitals, nursing homes, outpatient care facilities, pharmacies, and at home, and can result in severe and permanent complications, including brain damage, illness, disability, extensive pain, and even death.
Identifying and understanding the medical and legal issues involved in such instances can be difficult, requiring a team of experts to review the facts of each case in great detail. At Sommers Schwartz, we provide compassionate support and guidance while we conduct a comprehensive investigation, analyze the results with medical experts, determine culpability, and aggressively pursue a meritorious claim to obtain maximum compensation.
If you or someone you love has endured medical complications due to a medication error, the stakes can be high and require more than responding to an ad or reading a website. You need lawyers experienced in complicated medical malpractice matters to be your champion. You need Sommers Schwartz.
