Pharmacist Negligence

Medical Malpractice Lawyers for Injuries resulting from Pharmacist Negligence

When you seek the advice of a medical professional and you rely on the proper execution of their services, you trust that your health and safety will not be compromised. However, errors occasionally happen. We believe that any party whose negligence has caused you pain, suffering, or loss should be held accountable.

Pharmacists are not expected to be perfect, but they do owe a duty of care to everyone receiving his or her prescriptions. As healthcare professionals, pharmacists can be held liable for injuries if they fail to act as carefully as other pharmacists would have acted in discharging their duties. Injuries and illnesses resulting from pharmaceutical or pharmacist negligence can result from:

  • Drug side effects
  • Dispensing incorrect medications
  • Drug defects
  • Improper dosing
  • Incorrect prescriptions
  • Substitution of generic medicines by pharmacist
  • Pharmacy technician dispensing medicine instead of pharmacist

Consequences of Pharmaceutical Negligence

You and your family may be suffering long-term or permanent consequences as a result of a pharmacist’s negligence. Taking an incorrect dose of medicine or ingesting the wrong medicine can lead to hospitalization or home care. Additionally, you may lose income and your job may be at risk if you are unable to work for an indefinite period of time.

Pharmacies have pharmacist liability insurance, which can provide compensation to you for your injury, income loss, or costs of medical treatment if caused by the negligence of the pharmacy or its employees.
