As someone who makes your living dispensing medication in New York, you probably understand quite well that even the most minor pharmacy errors can have major consequences. At the Law Firm of Connors & Connors, P.C., we recognize that prevention is often your best defense against medication error claims, and we have helped many people in similar positions of responsibility take steps to protect or defend themselves against such claims.
Most in New York assume that when they take medication prescribed to them by their doctors, their conditions will automatically improve. What is lost in this assumption is that medications are not guaranteed to work, along with the fact that they function by suppressing reactions within the body (which causes side effects). In any event, if you are the one who supplied them with medication, then the blame may be likely to fall to you. Your safeguard against liability is often to simply advise that patients follow the recommended dosage guidelines. Yet many in your same position often come to us here at The Law Firm of Connors & Connors, P.C. asking whose responsible for the validity of those recommendations.
