Can I Sue a Pharmaceutical Company for Medication Errors?  | Kansas City Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medication Error Lawsuit

Establishing proof of harm and determining liability are the most important factors in a medication error lawsuit. If you suspect you have been impacted by a medication error, find records of your prescription history, the number of pills or treatments you have taken, and any other relevant information. All of this information will be helpful when determining the liability in your case.

In some instances, the error in medication may be a pharmacy’s mistake, and sometimes the liability is shared among several parties. Only a knowledgeable medication error attorney can determine who is at fault and help you gain compensation for your suffering. It may also be the case that your situation is not unique. Medication errors by pharmaceutical companies or pharmacies may be widespread, and you may become part of a class action suit if multiple parties are filing against a medication provider.

Your medication error lawsuit may be settled outside of court if you, your medication error attorney, and the other parties involved can negotiate and agree on a settlement. Settling outside of court has its benefits, such as quick access to compensation and a speedy resolution, but every case is unique and should be handled differently.
