Medication Errors by Pharmacies

There is a great deal of activity in pharmacies today. While the pharmacist retains ultimate authority, pharmaceutical assistants and others often play a significant role in the process of filling prescriptions and dispensing them to the patients. This can result in errors in filling and dispensing medication.

We understand that the wrong medicine or improper dosage can result in serious harm or even death. If you or someone close to you was the victim of a pharmacy medication error, please do not hesitate to contact us now to schedule a free consultation.

Pharmacists and pharmaceutical assistants work furiously in grocery stores, superstores and other retail stores to fill one prescription after the other. Due to this vast repetition and similar medication sizes, shapes, and colors, medication errors or mistakes do occur. Dispensing improper medication or the wrong dose can have catastrophic consequences. An incorrect dose of medicine can even be fatal and we have helped families pursue wrongful death actions due to these types of medication errors.

Yet other sources of drug-prescribing errors involve nurses or physicians whose indecipherable handwriting results in improper medication being dispensed, or the calling in of the wrong prescription. We can handle any and all prescription error cases, and will work diligently to secure the compensation to which you and your family are entitled. This includes a misfiled prescription incident or failing to recognize that two prescribed medications are contraindicated.
