Compensation after a Prescription Error

You get a prescription drug expecting it to help you fight an illness, manage a chronic condition or relieve unpleasant symptoms.

Then something goes wrong.

Instead of feeling better, you’re feeling worse. A lot worse. The medicine is hurting you.

A prescription error leaves you facing a fresh medical crisis—and climbing costs.

When that happens, you may have a medical malpractice claim. You could receive compensation to get your life back in order.

But it feels intimidating to fight doctors, hospitals, or pharmacies for the payment you deserve. So get the attorneys at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal to fight for you.

We work for everyday people in Ohio, not big health-care companies.

This is what we’re about: “Helping me, that’s HNB.”

What Can You Get from a Prescription Negligence Case?

Ohio, you can get paid for three kinds of losses for injuries from prescription errors:

  • Compensatory damages: Costs that you can total up to a specific number, such as medical bills and lost wages when you missed work because of the physician’s or pharmacist’s errors
  • Non-economic damages: Compensation for the misery you’ve endured, such as pain and suffering, which can’t be measured in exact dollars
  • Punitive damages: Payments meant to punish the health-care provider for their harmful actions

Ohio puts caps on how much you can collect for non-economic pain and suffering. You can get up to $350,000. Or if your injuries are among the most severe types, like a loss of limb, you can get as much as $500,000.

Compensatory damages have no cap. Ohio caps punitive damages at two times whatever you receive for compensatory damages.

You must meet deadlines to file a lawsuit. You should make your claim within one year from the time you realized or should have realized you were injured.

Proving your case means proving that the person who prescribed or dispensed your medication acted with negligence.

That takes evidence, legal knowledge and legwork. Let our Ohio prescription negligence lawyers handle that while you focus on your health.
