Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Albany
Experienced New York Medical Negligence Lawyers
A Firm Handling Medication Error-Related Medical Malpractice Cases Since 1950
Though medications are used to treat almost any ailment, they can cause serious harm and even death when doctors make crucial errors. For instance, injuries resulting from medication errors can occur when:
- Doctors over-prescribe drugs or medical staff provides overdose amounts
- Doctors' handwriting leads to pharmacy errors
- Doctors fail to take an adequate medication history
- Two or more drugs are prescribed that should not be taken together
- Doctors use poor judgment
The Albany lawyers of Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP, have handled dozens of medication error cases in our 75 years of combined legal experience. We can bring the knowledge, investigatory skills, and negotiation and litigation skills needed to protect your rights and obtain the compensation you deserve.
A Recent Case Illustrates Our Effectiveness in Handling Medication Error Cases.
Our client was afflicted with Steven Johnson Syndrome when his doctor improperly prescribed an antibiotic our client was known to be allergic to. Steven Johnson Syndrome is a skin-related medical condition which caused horrific and painful lesions on our client's eyes, torso, extremities, private areas and other areas.
We worked to prove negligence on the part of the treating physician and conclusively demonstrated that he did not even look at our client's chart prior to prescribing the harmful medical. Upon presenting a strong case to negotiators, we settled the case prior to trial for $1 million.
