How Much Are Settlements for a Wrong Prescription?

If you’re prescribed the wrong medication, not only will it fail to do what it is intended to do, but it can also have serious unintended side effects. If the wrong prescription has injured you, don’t wait to consult with an experienced South Carolina medical malpractice attorney.

Your Settlement

Most medical malpractice cases involving the wrong medications settle out of court – whereby you and the medical professional’s insurance carrier negotiate mutually acceptable terms. Although your settlement will be unique to your exact situation, the compensation you can seek includes:

  • The medical expenses you incur as a result of taking the wrong prescription
  • The lost earnings you incur as a result of taking the wrong prescription
  • The pain and suffering you incur as a result of taking the wrong prescription

If you can prove with convincing evidence that the doctor’s negligence was willful or reckless, you may also be eligible for punitive damages that are intended to punish his or her negligence.
