While many people may have a knee-jerk reaction when their pharmacy has made a mistake, the facts always need to be examined closely. Not all medication errors result in injuries.
What Are The Damages Really?
A strong defense against pharmacy medication error liability begins with a thorough investigation into exactly what damages the person suffered. Did they receive the wrong medication? Was there actually an adverse effect or was that person merely delayed in beginning the course of care he or she should have been receiving?
Our experience allows us to be able to effectively evaluate exposure to liability. These cases are often complicated and factors that have little or nothing to do with a medication error may be attributed wrongly to it. We understand how to clearly identify what is and what should not be part of a case.
These cases can be based on a variety of errors, including:
- Wrong medication
- Incorrect dosage
- Insufficient labeling
- Improper instruction
- Failure to note potential adverse drug interactions
