- Failure to account for patient allergies –We firmly believe medical professionals have a duty to protect their patients from the risks posed by dangerous drug interactions. Many of these harmful interactions occur when drug administers fail to ask their patients what drugs they are already taking. Interactions also occur when medical professionals do not adequately document their patients’ medical history, or fail to consult their medical records. Your pharmacist and doctor should be aware of all medications you are taking, and your pharmacist, in particular, should be diligent in ensuring you are not given drugs which are dangerous when taken together.
- Failure to account for interaction and efficacy – Drug interactions are not just dangerous because they can make you ill. Multiple drugs, when taken together, can both produce their effects, amplify one or each other’s effects, or reduce the impact of drugs. These interactions can cause illness or lessen the effectiveness of one or more drugs, potentially allowing the condition being treated to be unaffected.
- Failure to inform – When medical professionals prescribe medication, they must inform the patient of all possible effects. For example, according to the Food and Drug Administration, taking sleeping medication and allergy drugs at the same time can impede your reaction time and make vehicle or machine operation dangerous. Patients unaware of the drugs’ interactions and their effects may get behind the wheel, increasing the likelihood of a car accident that could harm themselves or others.
When a harmful drug interaction changes your life, numerous parties may be liable. These responsible parties may include the hospital, nurses, doctors, and pharmacists. At Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, we have nurses on our staff who bring their years of experience in the medical industries to help our clients receive compensation. By working with these medical professionals, our firm has an advantage in determining liability in your case and pursuing your claim.

Is there a time limit for when I can file a malpractice claim?

However, exceptions to this rule do exist, and an experienced lawyer can help you determine if your claim can be filed.
How long will it take to pursue my claim?
Many factors can affect how long it will take to resolve your case. The timeline of your claim is entirely dependent on the specific elements of your case. Some claims take months to resolve, others take much longer. Factors like the defendant’s willingness to settle, your motivation to settle, and other factors can affect the duration of your lawsuit.
Which losses will my compensation cover?
Damages awarded in Massachusetts medical malpractice cases often cover your pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages. It is possible though relatively uncommon for malpractice cases to result in punitive damages.
