Louisiana Lawyers With Experience Handling Wrong Prescription Cases
When people go to the pharmacy to get their medication, they have a right to expect that it will make them better. If they are given the wrong dosage or type of prescription medication, however, it can make their medical condition worse and cause injury or even death.
Typically, a number of medical professionals are involved in filling a prescription, including doctors, pharmacists and nurses. Wrong prescription victims and their loved ones may be able to file a claim to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other costs of injuries caused by incorrect medication.
At the office of Tauzin & Lorio, Attorneys at Law, we help those whose lives have been deeply affected by a prescription mistake. Our law firm performs investigative work to determine where and by whom the medical error was committed. This allows us to build a strong case for clients.

Incorrect Prescriptions Have Serious Ramifications
Our clients include patients and families of those injured or killed by:
- Illegible prescriptions from the physician
- Incorrect doses administered by a hospital nurse
- Wrong medications given out by the pharmacist
- Wrong strength of medication given out by pharmacist
- Wrong patient instructions and warnings given out by pharmacist
- Prescriptions written by a doctor without adequate patient history
Errors like these can lead to strokes, elevated blood pressure and death. These mistakes are particularly serious in cases involving children; their systems may not be developed enough to withstand the effects of an incorrect prescription.
