People take drugs prescribed by their doctor in order to recover from illness and pain. When you properly take a doctor prescribed medicine, you rightly do so expecting that it will improve your health and quality of life, not hinder it. When a drug doesn’t work the way you expect it to, it can be frustrating as the harmful condition isn’t treated. Worse yet, prescription drugs can cause significant health damage, including damage to internal organs like the liver, worsened medical conditions, or even death when they are prescribed incorrectly.

If you or a loved one suffered as a result of an improper prescription, there are medical malpractice laws that exist to hold the people responsible accountable for their negligence, whether that be the doctor that prescribed the drug, the drug maker, or the pharmacy that provided it.  That’s why you should contact an experienced medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible if you believe you suffered from an improperly administered or prescribed drug.

Over 80 Years Of Personal Injury Case Experience.

In order to hold the correct parties responsible and collect evidence for your case, the improper prescription of your medication must be investigated thoroughly. We work with experts in the field to determine whether the fault lies with improperly prescribed medications on the part of doctors, improperly mixed or marked pills on the part of pharmacists, or mistakes in the manufacture of the drug on the part of the drug maker.

What is Pharmacy Negligence?

Pharmacies may be negligent in a number of ways when they fill a prescription. One way is by supplying the wrong drug. This occurs when they receive the order but aren’t responsible enough to double-check that they provide the appropriate drug. Another common way in which pharmacies may be negligent is by providing the correct type of medication, but marking the label with the wrong dosage or providing the wrong dosage within the pill. A similar form of negligence is labeling the medication with incorrect instructions on how to take the drug.

These seemingly small mistakes can have enormous repercussions. If your prescription was improperly filled at any location that provides medication, including supermarkets and mail services, you should speak to an attorney right away. Do not return the medication if asked to do so, it may be important evidence.
