Massachusetts Medication Error Lawyers
Medication errors are so common that most hospitals and pharmacies have elaborate systems in place to make sure patients get the right medication in the correct dose. But sometimes these systems fail, or human error intervenes. The wrong medication can have terrible consequences for the patient who receives it. Patients may also suffer serious harm if they don’t receive a necessary medication. And some medications have dangerous side effects or can cause allergic reactions.
