Providing prescription medication to New York residents is an essential service, but it may be difficult to know how to react after receiving notice of a prescription error liability claim. Because there are so many aspects of such a case, it may be necessary to conduct an investigation of all the relevant circumstances. At The Law Firm of Conners & Conners, P.C., we have helped many clients navigate through these types of liability claims.

Part of defending against a liability claim involves understanding the various causes of a medical issue or result. While medication errors may cause adverse effects, there are several other factors that may contribute to such issues as well. For example, what may appear to be a problem from a medication error could come from a patient’s pre-existing condition or an unrelated medical issue.

Many of these pharmacy liability cases include several different types of possible errors. For example, insufficient labels and/or incorrect instructions are some types of errors that may result in a medical malpractice case. Other errors include providing the wrong medication and/or an incorrect dosage. If the medication did not include all the required information about potential drug interactions, that may be another aspect of a liability case. Defending against liability claims may require in-depth research to determine the extent of legitimate exposure to liability.

The causes and consequences of pharmacy errors may be complex. If you are facing a pharmacy error liability claim, it is important to understand that some issues attributed to medication errors often have other factors and causes as well.
