Compensation for Pharmacy Errors

When you go to the pharmacy to get a prescription filled, you should be confident that you will get the correct medication. Unfortunately, like anyone else, pharmacists can make mistakes. The problem is that when they do, the consequences can be disastrous, if not deadly. If you or a loved one has been affected by pharmacy errors, you could be entitled to compensation.

Perhaps the most difficult aspect of a pharmacy error case is proving negligence. That can be very difficult to do, though, when several parties are involved. Is it the fault of the doctor who wrote the prescription, the pharmacist who filled it or the pharmacy that employs the pharmacist? Maybe it’s a combination. Whatever the case, your trained, experienced Goldman Daszkal attorney will know who can be held liable for your suffering as the result of a pharmacy error.

When you pick up your medications from the pharmacy, there is an expectation that you will be taking the medications you were prescribed at the doses your doctor ordered. If the pharmacy makes an error, you could receive the wrong medication or the wrong dose of your medicine. Either way, that error could lead to lasting injury or death.

Suffering from a pharmacy error also can lead to unexpected costs, including doctors’ bills, hospital bills and more medications. On top of that, you could lose time at work, resulting in lost wages.

Like doctors and other medical professionals, pharmacies must have insurance. If the pharmacy makes a mistake, the insurance company compensates the victim. If you are dealing with the consequences of a pharmacy error, you do not have to deal with insurance companies on your own. Your attorney knows how to get the most compensation available to cover your costs and help you recover without financial concerns.

If you have suffered because of a pharmacy error, compensation is available. Contact the expert attorneys at Goldman Daszkal for a free consultation.
