When Can You File a Claim for a Pharmacy Error?

If a pharmacist provides a patient with the wrong medication, this mistake can either do nothing to help them heal from the sickness or injury they are suffering, or it can cause severe internal damage. Other errors made by pharmacists include providing a patient with a vastly different dosage and the wrong medicine which could also cause severe injury.

Pharmacists have a duty of care owed to individuals who are purchasing medication from the pharmacy. When this duty of care is breached, this act of negligence may lead to severe injury on part of the victim. As a result, the victim may have sufficient evidence to be able to file a claim against the at-fault party in order to obtain fair compensation for their losses. To get help proving that the pharmacist’s negligence is what led to your injuries and losses, contact a trusted medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.
