An error in prescribing and/or administering medication may result in serious injury or death. Morris, Downing & Sherred, LLP, has been practicing law in Sussex County for more than 100 years, and our attorneys have the experience and know-how to help you with your medical malpractice injury.

Medical professionals are held to very high standards when it comes to your care, but there are times when preventable mistakes happen and these mistakes can be costly. They can also be difficult to prove. Our counselors focus their practice on medical errors made by health care professionals, and our approach to your claim includes evaluating all of the facts, gathering supporting documentation and examining the full extent of the damage the mistake has caused. We have a full knowledge of New Jersey's medical malpractice laws and a team of medical experts that we work with.

Medication Error Facts

MedicineNet reports that "approximately 1.3 million people are injured annually in the United States" due to medication errors. The most common mishaps caused by health care practitioners include:

  • Improper dosage
  • Giving the patient the wrong medication
  • Administering the medication incorrectly

Any of these errors can cause you or a loved one serious harm, leading to an extended hospital stay, increased medical bills and/or increased mortality. Elderly people, children or those compromised by illness are particularly vulnerable to a medication error.
