A new client asked us this question recently…
If a clear-cut medication mistake was made, won’t the case get settled?
It is rare, but it does happen. In most Connecticut Drug Injury cases, the doctors, hospitals and insurance companies refuse to pay anything unless made to do so by a jury. That is why we prepare all of our cases as if they will go to trial.
Sometimes a medication error is so blatant and results in such serious harm or wrongful death that the case will settle before litigation begins, but this hardly ever happens.
The Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyers with Carter Mario Law Firm acknowledges the dangers medication errors can present and suggest discussing your legal rights with an attorney if you have been harmed by a medication given to you or a loved one by a health care professional.
