Medication Errors - Malpractice

Medication Errors - MalpracticeMiami Medication Lawyers Medication mistakes injure 1.5 million people and cost billions of dollars annually (Institute of Medicine, National Academies, July, 2006).

As Miami medical malpractice attorneys we understand these medication mistake cases can take many forms: (1) Doctors can prescribe the wrong medication entirely or prescribe an improper dosage or give an overdose of the correct medication; (2) nurses in a hospital may give the wrong medication, despite a correct order by the doctor, or give the wrong dosage of a medication (Note: one reason patients get wrong meds in hospital is that different meds may go in similar looking IV bags - a dangerous practice); (3) pharmacies can wrongly fill, mis-fill or improperly fill a prescription so as to give either the wrong medication or dosage; (4) doctors, nurses or pharmacies can give patients the wrong (“contraindicated”) combination of medications, causing a dangerous interaction of medications; (5) doctors may keep patients on a medication that is toxic to the liver or kidneys for too long and allow medications to cause damage to the liver or kidneys (medical error/medical malpractice causing kidney failure/kidney disease), or (5) Doctors or nurses can give a patient medication to which they are allergic – a mistake that can often be fatal.

Client Reviews
Rob very successfully represented our family (our son) in a medical malpractice case involving a birth injury where our son suffered brachial plexus at birth.
Rob truly has a passion and an amazing talent for law. His commitment to his clients is truly unwavering and we are forever grateful for the dedication and care that he put into our son's case. Without a doubt it is because of Rob that our son will have opportunities in life he may not have had and will have the resources he needs to make his disablility less of a hindrance for him.
Robert Boyers was recommended to me to handle my slip and fall case. I will be forever grateful to Robert for allowing me to feel that I was in the ‘best possible hands’ throughout the 2+ year process through and including the settlement of the case. Robert’s expertise, professionalism, and compassion were beyond what I observed in the legal field. And, his associate and staff were a fine reflection of Robert’s guidance. Robert was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. Rhonda
I hired Mr. Robert Boyers for a wrongful death case involving my father. I wasn’t sure what to do, or procedures to take until I met Mr. Boyers. I can say honestly from my heart I’m very thankful I met this attorney. Losing a father, and feeling lost is the worst feeling anyone would have. Mr. Boyers and his staff was very sincere and compassionate the entire time and then after during my case. Erica
I had a major accident where I sustained many injuries both short and long term. I was referred to Rob Boyers by a friend and I contacted him and he came to my house as I was completely incapacitated. He interviewed myself and my family as to the facts of the case and we subsequently hired him to handle my case as it relates to the insurance and the various medical obligations i was incurring.
To that end I am grateful to him and his services and consider him a friend to this day.
