A: An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I hope your son is okay. It could depend on whether there were any significant damages as a result of the wrong dosage. I hope there were no serious consequences, but any lawsuit would be based on the severity of the impact. You could reach out to local attorneys to discuss in more detail. Good luck
