What Is a Medication Error?
There are a variety of situations that can cause medication errors, and most are a form of medical malpractice. A doctor could prescribe the wrong medication or dosage, resulting in injury. A pharmacist could make a mistake when filling your prescription, substituting a dangerous drug instead of the one you need. A medical professional could also fail to warn you about the potential dangers of a drug. Whatever the case may be, you have rights and could be entitled to compensation for the pain you’ve endured as a result of someone else’s mistakes.
How Do I Know If I Have a Case?
The best way to know whether you have a case after suffering from a medication error is to speak with a qualified and experienced attorney. Jimmy knows just how complex these cases can be, and he knows how to help you navigate the tricky legal process.
If the error was on the part of a medical professional, you could have a medical malpractice case. If the drug itself was defective, you may have a drug injury claim. The best way to be sure of your options is to talk to our Boston, MA, medication error lawyers at Jim Glaser Law today.

Medication Error FAQs
What Does Medical Negligence Mean?
Medical negligence comes into play in almost every medication error case. Doctors, pharmacists, and other health care professionals have an obligation under the law to act responsibly toward their patients. When they fail to do so, and their irresponsible actions cause you harm, it can be considered negligence. To have a successful case, you will need to prove that they acted in an irresponsible way, that their irresponsibility caused the error, and that you got hurt because of the error. This can be quite complex, so having an experienced attorney on your side will be to your benefit.
What Does Pharmaceutical Liability Mean?
Pharmaceutical liability comes into play if you take a defective drug and you use it exactly as instructed but suffer harm. In terms of a medication error, it usually means there was a danger to using the drug that your doctor, pharmacist, or the manufacturer knew about or should have known about and failed to inform you. If this happened to you and you got sick or hurt as a result, contact our team at Jim Glaser Law right now to discuss your case.
What Is the Statute of Limitations?
In Massachusetts, there are several windows of time that come into play for medical malpractice cases, known as the statute of limitations. This law states that you have three years from the date of the alleged malpractice, but there are also allowances to start the clock from the date you first became aware of the injury. If the injured person is a minor, the window is three years from the date that the minor’s parents became aware of the issue. The absolute time limit for medical malpractice claims is seven years, regardless of when you became aware of the injury.
