It is expected that doctors who administer prescriptions will review medical records and make inquiries about potential allergies that can make a particular medication dangerous. Please contact the law firm of Cerussi & Gunn, P.C., to schedule a free initial consultation if you became ill or a family member has died because of a medication error.
A supposedly accidental drug overdose in a hospital or nursing home is often an instance of medical malpractice. An allergic reaction may have been preventable if health care givers had paid attention to past medical history. Or a prescription error may have been the result of an oversight or miscommunication between doctor and pharmacist, or between doctor and nursing staff.
At Cerussi & Gunn, P.C., we are a well-established medical malpractice law firm whose trial experience covers both the state and federal court systems of New Jersey and New York. We take great pride in representing plaintiffs in cases of medical negligence involving medication errors and nursing home errors.
One client of Cerussi & Gunn, P.C., was sent from a hospital to a nursing home accompanied by a list of medications she was supposed to be taking. The nursing home failed to administer these drugs for five straight days, resulting in fatal illness. Although our law firm is helping her survivors obtain compensation through a wrongful death claim, nothing can bring back a life lost to an otherwise preventable medication error.
Our attorneys, Mr. Cerussi, Mr. Gunn, Ms. Gannon and/or Mr. Pierguidi only handle select cases after meeting with prospective clients. They are very selective about the cases that they take on because they want to devote their energy to those matters in which they can make the greatest difference for the injured and the bereaved. To schedule a consultation regarding a medication error, please contact our law firm by phone or e-mail.
