You took your prescribed medication, but something went wrong. Rather than treat your existing condition, you experienced a medical complication that required emergency care, a lengthy hospital stay—or resulted in the death of a loved one. Sadly, it’s a story that our firm and patient safety advocates have heard before.
What you or your loved one experienced was known as an adverse drug event or ADE. ADEs can be the result of medication reacting poorly with your body chemistry, reacting poorly with your existing medications, or can even be a result of receiving the wrong medication from your healthcare provider. Regardless of the cause, the law firm of Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Prather, Littky-Rubin & Whitman is here to stand by your side and hold your provider accountable for the damage they caused you and your family.

About Common Causes of Medication Errors
There are multiple factors that lead to an ADE. Unfortunately, many of these factors are preventable human errors. The pharmaceutical care industry has sophisticated tracking technologies to help investigate the root cause of medication errors, which can span from the handwriting a doctor employed to write your prescription, to the way a nurse administered a medication to you.
Research indicates that more than 50% of ADEs are preventable—which means your healthcare providers may be liable to pay for the damage and harm caused to you and your family. It is the hospital’s duty to prescribe and administer medication in a way that minimizes risk and eliminates adverse drug reactions between different prescriptions. When they have failed, our clients paid the price.
