giving wrong medication in the hospital

When you receive medical treatment, you expect the providers to administer proper care and give the correct medication. If a hospital provides the wrong medication, then it can have significant consequences on your health. In these situations, a hospital may be liable for damages caused by their error. If this has happened to you or a loved one, then contact the Reid Law Firm to speak with a Des Moines IA medical malpractice attorney.

Why remedies are available when a hospital provides the wrong medication
When a hospital provides the wrong medication to a patient and the patient suffers damages from the error, then there may be a medical malpractice claim against the hospital. In a medical malpractice claim, you may be entitled to recover money damages to compensate you for out-of-pocket expenses incurred as well as for other losses, such as pain and suffering.

The amount which you may recover depends upon the extent of damages suffered and the type of insurance coverage the hospital carries. A Des Moines IA medical malpractice attorney can help assess your situation to determine how much you should expect to receive.
