What Kind of Recoverable Damages Can You Demand in a Dundalk Medication Errors Case?
Whenever you suffer physical and economic damages due to something like a medication error, you are allowed to seek recoverable damages from the negligent party. Any losses you incurred because of the medication error would constitute recoverable damages. Brown and Barron can help you hold the negligent party accountable by demanding recoverable damages on your behalf.
Because every medication error case is different, the kinds of recoverable damages, or the amount of those damages, we may seek on your behalf varies. Examples of the recoverable damages Brown and Barron may demand in a medication error case include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Additional medical expenses you incurred due to the medication error
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Long term care, such as in-home nurses or other therapy needed
- Cost of medication needed to counteract the original error
In some extreme cases where patients have allergies or other highly adverse reactions to medication errors, clients suffer permanent disabilities or long-term loss of function. When this happens, it can increase the potential value of your case.

How Much Will Brown and Barron Demand in my Dundalk Medication Error Case?
The amount of recoverable damages a Brown and Barron attorney demands on your behalf in a medication error case is contingent on several important variables. The cost of any medical treatment necessary to fix the original medication error is one of the most important determining factors in assessing the value of your case.
Beyond that, the amount of your lost wages and the extent of the injuries caused by the medication error will also play a huge role in how much compensation Brown and Barron seeks on your behalf. With that said, every medication error case has its own completely unique fact pattern.
When you sit down with one of our attorneys and give them the full range of facts in your case, we can give you an estimate of the potential value. The main thing Brown and Barron want you to understand is that your case matters to us, and we’ll work relentlessly to hold the negligent party accountable for all your recoverable damages.
How does Brown and Barron Handle Medication Error Cases?
First, we can gather evidence to prove that the medical professionals in your medication error case didn’t exercise the required standard of care. We must also prove that the failure to meet those standards led to your injuries. This is all part of building a persuasive case for damages on your behalf.
In addition to gathering evidence and building a case against the negligent party, Brown and Barron will handle the following case-related tasks while you recover:
- Keeping you aware of the status of your case
- Communicating directly with the other party, their insurance provider, or their legal counsel with respect to your case
- Performing administrative functions (e.g., phone calls and paperwork)
- Filing your case
- Representing you in court and in negotiations with the opposing party
- Preparing subpoenas for records
- Filing pre-trial motions and replying to correspondence from the opposing party
- Consulting with other medical experts regarding the facts in your case
At Brown and Barron, we are concerned about your long-term wellbeing. We want you to make a full recovery from your medication error, which starts with letting you focus your energy on feeling better. We will put our energy into seeking recoverable damages and working your case.
