Bringing a Medical Malpractice Claim for Prescription Medication Errors
Salt Lake City / Provo Prescription Malpractice Lawyer
When it comes to prescribing, filling, and administering medication, there are many steps along the way from the doctor to the patient. At each step along the way there are opportunities to check and double check that errors have not been made.
Medication errors are completely avoidable. If each medical professional does his or her duty with ordinary care, no patient should suffer serious injury because of a medication problem. If hospitals implement standard practices of checks and double-checks, no family should be left to grieve the death of a loved one from a medication error.
Sadly, every year people in Utah suffer serious injuries or death because of prescription errors or medication errors in clinical setting.
At Rasmussen & Miner, our injury attorneys have been helping injured people and grieving families find financial recovery for more than 20 years. Contact our Salt Lake City law office to speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. Call toll-free: 1-800-585-6726.

Why You Need an Experienced Legal Advocate
Medication error cases are complex and may require the help of medical experts to prove how the error occurred and defend against the claim that the patients’ reaction to the drug could not be foreseen. You have only a limited amount of time to bring a claim.
Do not delay talking with a lawyer at our office about:
- Prescription drug overdose or wrong dosage;
- Wrong medications prescribed;
- Failure to properly monitor patients responses to medication or anesthesiology;
- Filling an order with a similar, generic drug rather than the prescribed drug or with the wrong generic;
- A drug being administered improperly.
