Did your pharmacy give you the wrong prescription drug or the wrong dosage of a medication? Did it cause you serious medical problems? Did a pharmacy error cause the wrongful death of a loved one?
Drug stores and pharmacies must provide you with the correct medicine. If they make a mistake and hurt someone, they can be held responsible for the medical bills, missed work time, and pain and suffering.
I Think I Was the Victim of a Pharmacy Error - What Should I Do?
Taking the wrong medicine can be a frightening experience. Unwanted side effects can lead to potentially serious and even life-threatening injuries. That's why it's so important for pharmacists and drugstore employees to pay close attention to your prescription and provide you with the correct drugs and dosage that you need. Always check to make sure your local pharmacy or drug store fills your prescription exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
If you checked your medication and you still became a victim of a pharmacy error, seek medical treatment immediately. Your health should be your number one priority. Then, preserve as much evidence as you can – keep the pill bottle or packaging, as well as the original prescription bag and drug label. It should have a prescription fill date, as well as the prescribed dosage amount.
