Pharmacy Medication Errors
It is widely reported that over 1 million individuals per year in the United States have been the victim of some sort of pharmacy error. If you believe that your pharmacist has made an error in filling or dispensing your prescription medicine, you may have a claim for which you are due compensation. Some pharmacy errors can result in devastating consequences, such as further complications of your medical condition, overdose, and sometimes even death.
You could have been given another patient’s prescription, the prescription bottle could have had your name on it, but the wrong medication is inside it, or the pharmacy may have failed to identify dangerous drug interactions with other medications you are receiving from them. The pharmacy may also have failed to identify drug allergies which they are aware that you have when filling your prescription, failed to confirm with your doctor about an unclear or confusing prescription, or they may have filled your prescription with another similarly named medicine.
Compensation for Victims of Pharmacy Error
If you have been the victim of a pharmacy error, you may be owed compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, lost income, and physical or mental impairment. You may have suffered a fall or an accident while suffering from the effects of taking the wrong medication given to you. Or, you may have gone through hours of vomiting, headaches, nausea, sleeplessness or diarrhea. Even if you do not believe pursuing a claim would be worthwhile, reporting these mistakes can help possible future victims. Reporting an error makes the pharmacies aware of the mistakes, and helps to decrease similar future errors. Even seemingly minor claims for temporary discomfort can result in a large settlement or verdict.
