Helping Patients Injured By Medication Errors
When you are prescribed or administered medication, you rely on your team of health care professionals to select the appropriate drug for you and deliver it correctly. Physicians, nurse practitioners, anesthesiologists, pharmacists, nursing home caregivers and other medical professionals receive special medication training to reduce the likelihood of drug interactions and overdoses.
If they are careless when prescribing or administering a drug, the outcome can be life-changing or even fatal. Our legal team at Law Office of Bradley A. Sacks skillfully represents patients and their loved ones affected by preventable medication mistakes. For over three decades, we have helped New York City residents get justice and fair compensation for injuries caused by medical malpractice.
