Connecticut Medication Error Lawyers
Medication can help you get better when you’re sick or injured. But just as medication has the power to ease pain and reduce symptoms, it can also be harmful to your health. If your doctor or other healthcare provider fails to give you the right medications at the right dosages, you may develop serious illnesses and complications.
If you or a loved one were harmed by a prescription medication, you may not know what to do. Our Connecticut medical malpractice attorneys at Carter Mario Injury Lawyers are here to help by answering your questions and guiding you through the process.

Types of Medication Errors
The most common types of medication errors include:
- Improper dosages – Medication dosages must be appropriate for the weights, ages, and symptoms of patients. If dosages are too high or too low, patients can develop severe side effects and health problems.
- Incorrect prescriptions – When patients are given the wrong medications, their health problems are left untreated and may get worse. Taking an unnecessary or incorrect medication may also cause patients to develop new health problems.
- Harmful drug interactions – Many types of medications interact with each other in the body. This may result in medications canceling each other out, amplifying each other, or causing dangerous interactions that increase side effects.
Doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other healthcare providers are responsible for making sure you get the right medication. If they don’t, they could be held liable for any injuries or complications.
