Doctors are given the responsibility of managing patient care - including coordination of medications prescribed. While mistakes are human nature, errors in prescribing, filling or administering medications can cause severe injuries and even death. When doctors, pharmacists, anesthesiologists and other medical professionals make such reckless mistakes, they need to be held accountable.
The attorneys at Aiken & Scoptur, S.C., are committed to helping the clients who have suffered medication errors. We represent clients and their families in medical malpractice lawsuits to recover compensation for the damage suffered and to obtain justice for the patient or family.

We Work to Recover What You Are Owed
Our personal injury law firm is known for taking on cases that other attorneys refuse to handle. Cases involving prescription negligence or pharmacy errors may take additional leg work during the investigation, which makes the case more challenging and frequently more expensive up front for the attorney. However, with our experience and resources, we are prepared to take on these challenges to meet our clients' needs - and win.
Our firm handles all types of prescription/medication error cases, including cases involving:
- Wrong dose (too much or too little)
- Anesthesia overdose
- Medications that interact with other medications
- Wrong medication
- Treating wrong symptoms
- Filled wrong prescription
Millions Recovered for Victims of Medication Errors
Through our meticulous investigation and intense trial preparation, our attorneys have recovered significant awards for patients and their families. For example, in one case, we recovered $2 million in a case involving the wrong dose of a medication which caused the patient to suffer cardiac arrest. In another case, we recovered almost $1.4 million who was given the wrong drug for his health problem — which ultimately lead to his wrongful death. View more verdicts and settlements.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a medication error or pharmacy error, do not hesitate to consult with an experienced lawyer about your claim. You may have a valid claim to hold the medical professional accountable.
