The compensation for a wrong medication lawsuit depends on the severity of harm caused by the error. Each case is evaluated based on the facts of the case, rather than there being any standard amount for all victims.

When you’re hurt by receiving the wrong medication, you deserve fair compensation for your damages, losses, and harms. In general, the more severe your injuries are – and the clearer liability is – the more you stand to receive in compensation. There are many factors that may impact your compensation.

Factors that May Impact Compensation for a Wrong Medication Lawsuit

There are several factors that may impact compensation for a victim of the wrong medication. Equal weight isn’t given to each factor, so there’s no way to use a calculator to total the amount you will receive. By exploring each of these factors, you may determine a range of your potential case value and see what may impact your case result. You may also identify areas of focus as you pursue your case in litigation.

Financial losses

Financial losses from receiving the wrong medication may come in the form of medical bills. Medical costs may relate to treating the bad effects of the wrong medication or from the underlying medical condition and the fact that the patient didn’t receive the medication that they needed.

In addition, a victim may be unable to work. They may have nursing expenses if they can’t care for themselves. Financial expenses resulting from getting the wrong medication may be totaled and claimed as damages.

Extent of physical harm, suffering, and lifestyle impact

Equally as serious as the financial loss resulting from receiving the wrong medication is the personal toll on the victim. A victim may experience extreme physical and emotional suffering. They may have disfiguring injury, immobility, brain damage, harm to bodily systems, and other ailments. Recovery may be slow, and injuries may be permanent. Physical and emotional suffering may be claimed as non-economic damages.

Whether liability is clear

You must show that you received the wrong medication and that the error is the result of medical malpractice. As you build your case, you may gather medical and operational records, depose witnesses, and ask for admissions from the defense. When liability is clear, it strengthens your case for how much compensation for a wrong medication lawsuit.

How clear it is that the wrong medication caused the harm

As the litigant, you must prove that receiving the wrong medication resulted in harm. As your lawyer, we’ll build this evidence through our investigation and medical experts. When it is clear that the wrong medication caused harm, it makes your case stronger. We’ll work to prove each element, including causation of harm.

Extreme misconduct

If the defense is responsible for extremely reckless or intentional misconduct, you may seek punitive damages.

Punitive damages don’t reflect your losses. Rather, they punish the defendant for their misconduct. Punitive damages are rare in a claim for wrong medication. If you qualify, they may impact how much compensation you receive.

Damage caps

Damage caps may apply to pain and suffering in some medical malpractice claims. If applicable, caps apply only to non-economic damages.

Insurance and ability to collect compensation

Even if liability is clear, you must be able to collect your compensation. A pharmacy, hospital, nursing home, or other entity that dispenses medication should have insurance. When we represent you, we’ll review ways to collect your judgment.

How you pursue your case

Getting fairly compensated through a wrong medication lawsuit takes diligent pursuit of your case. The pharmacy or other responsible party may try to settle your case early. They may refuse to settle in hopes that you’ll give up. Having an experienced lawyer to represent you is critical to how much compensation you can get and important for moving your case forward through the claims process.
