Doctors and other healthcare providers are trusted to prescribe the appropriate medications and doses to help treat their patients’ conditions and alleviate symptoms. Likewise, pharmacists are relied upon by patients to provide proper filling of prescriptions. Unfortunately, medication errors are among the most common types of medical negligence by hospitals and pharmacies in and around Cherry Hill.
A medication error which occurs as the result of another person’s negligence could entitle you or a loved one to compensation for any losses you subsequently sustained. Prescription mistakes could result in severe injury, illness, or even death, but hospitals and pharmacies will be eager to avoid liability in all cases, so it is advisable to seek representation from an experienced Cherry Hill medication error lawyer to protect your legal rights.
Prescription errors and other negligent acts involving medication are unfortunately common in Cherry Hill. Many of these errors involve some type of negligence by a healthcare provider or other individual handling the prescription or medication. For instance, common causes of errors involving medication include:
Negligent medication errors could result in severe injuries or death. To establish a claim for malpractice against a medical provider, it is critical to determine the cause of the prescription error. A seasoned medication mistake lawyer could investigate a case to determine the cause of the error.
Throughout the process of prescribing medication, filling the prescription, and administering the drug, there is potential for errors or wrongdoing. When a doctor-patient relationship is formed, the doctor is responsible for ensuring that any medication prescribed to them is medically necessary, appropriate for their medical condition, the correct dosage, and prescribed for the correct amount of time. Therefore, doctors are typically one of the first parties to be investigated for a medication error claim.
Additionally, other healthcare providers such as nurses and medical technicians could be responsible for incorrectly administering prescribed medication to an individual. Another common party that could be potentially liable for medication mistake is the pharmacist, who is tasked with filling and providing the prescription. Along with the individuals who might have made a medication error, the hospitals, pharmacies, or other businesses involved could also be liable for damages resulting from prescription errors.
Regardless of the circumstances of a medication error case, identifying potentially liable parties will likely be a complex task. For that reason, a well-versed Cherry Hill medication error attorney could make the difference in holding responsible parties accountable for their negligence.
The deadline for filing a case in state court for medical negligence is known as the state statute of limitations. Under state law, the statute of limitations for claims related to a medication error is generally two years from the date that the error occurred, or from the date that a link between the mistake and ensuing damages was discovered or should have been reasonably discovered. However, this deadline could be shortened or extended depending on the facts of the case.
Failure to comply with the statute of limitations could cause an injured or sick patient to miss out on compensation for the damages they sustained due to a medication error. A dedicated Cherry Hill attorney could help ensure that an individual does not miss out on the chance to seek fair compensation for the consequences of a medication error.
The harm sustained from a medication error could be immense and leave you or a loved one with significant medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and overall pain and suffering. Although you might believe liability is clear cut, medical malpractice cases involving prescription mistakes are notorious for becoming extremely complex. A knowledgeable Cherry Hill medication error lawyer could help advocate for your best interests in and out of court. Schedule a case evaluation with our team now.
This team is incredible. They are friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate everything they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone. Overall great experience
My case settled recently after lasting 4 years. Grungo and Colarulo’s law firm were able to secure a large settlement award for my slip and fall accident. This money will help secure my future for the permanent injury I received as a result of the slip and fall. Everyone was very caring, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Christine Lafferty is an excellent litigation lawyer. I highly recommend using them if you have been injured or in an accident. I hope I am never in a situation again to need their services, but I know who to go to if I, or any of my family members are ever injured. Thanks Grungo and Colarulo and staff for your compassionate service!
Thank you so much Grungo and Colarulo for helping me with my case. Special thanks to Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team. Erica Domingo and her team was very nice and helped me tremendously throughout my case like more than one year and half. They gave me the right advice and guided me through every step of my case. They gave me prompt and clear responses to all my questions. In addition, Erica and her team provided me with all the what if scenarios so that I can have a clear vison of the steps ahead.

My wife and I reached out to Grungo Colarulo in 2020 for advise on a legal matter. After a meeting with the Attorney and Paralegal, we decided to go forward with a case. This case required a lot of documentation, and expert review of the documentation which was aquired. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date monthly, and Grungo Colarulo was always responsive to any questions that we had. The entire staff at Grungo Colarulo are very professional, caring, and willing to go the extra mile. This firm is a definite recommend!
I left five (5) stars only because that’s as many as I could leave. If I could, I would have left 100 stars. Bob & Christine are the absolute best! My settlement far exceeded what I ever imagined. They are professional, friendly, and really listened to what I had to say. They kept me up to date with the progress of my case every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

A dear family friend referred us to a young attorney named Rich Grungo, Jr. We wanted answers and if necessary, justice for our father. From day one of a five-year journey, Mr. Rich Grungo, Jr. made our family and our pain his own. The man never stopped working for us. He kept us informed every step of the way. Questions were answered quickly and with great compassion and expertise. Even though Rich was always busy, he was never too busy for us. We always felt like we were his only clients
I had the opportunity to observe Mr. Grungo work in this case, both in the courtroom on the technical matters of the motions and also as his presentation to the jury in opening and presenting witnesses as well as utilizing animations… and drawings and films that were necessary for a proper understanding of the case…At all times during the presentation, Mr. Grungo operated mostly without notes and questioned the witnesses in a conversational manner which made it most effective. **
Thank you for everything. I honestly felt like you treated my son like he was your own son, for that I am grateful. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for being so awesome to both of us.
It was a pleasure working with Bill. He constantly kept me informed. I would recommend Bill and his firm to anybody I know. They’ll be in good hands.
I had the opportunity to retain Mr. Colarulo for a vehicle accident I encountered. I give him my highest recommendation for anyone in need of an excellent Personal Injury Attorney. Not only does he have an in depth knowledge of the legal field, but he emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel secure during the entire process. Mr. Colarulo has the knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you. He comes highly recommended.
Hi Rich, Well I’m on my way up to college to finish packing my son’s stuff up and to go to his Graduation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast and how slow, at the same time 5 years can go by. I was just thinking of you as I am getting ready to leave and wanted to thank you once again for everything you have done for my son’s future. You are a good and just man. God Bless to you and your family.
