What Are My Options After A Prescription Error?
Prescription errors and misdiagnosis are two of the most common medical errors, causing severe injury and even death in some cases. When the physicians, medical staff and pharmacists you trust to take care of you make an error, you have a right to seek compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
Since 1998, Connell & Foresta has been helping people in Massachusetts who have been injured by medical professionals get the financial support they need. While the insurance company will pressure you to accept the first settlement it offers you, we will take the time to fully assess your injuries and calculate the total cost of your accident. We will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to get you a settlement that will not only meet your current needs, but also support your future needs.

Prescription errors occur with a physician or another health care professional who prescribes or gives you too much or too little of a medication, the wrong medication or a medication that you are allergic to. Errors can also be made if a pharmacist gives you someone else’s prescription, gives you the wrong dosage instructions or doesn’t check if there are any contraindications between your medications.
Prescription errors can lead to serious injuries such as brain damage, uncontrollable bleeding, nausea, seizures, stroke, temporary and permanent paralysis, and heart attacks. We will hold medical professionals accountable for their negligence and ensure that you get a settlement that supports your family as you heal from your injuries.
When a doctor fails to diagnose you with a serious medical condition, your chances of recovery can be considerably impacted. Whether you or a loved one has been misdiagnosed with cancer, stroke, infection or a heart attack, we will help you pursue just and full compensation for your injuries.
