Medication and Pharmacy Errors
Pharmacists are skilled professionals delivering essential health care, but mistakes by pharmacists and other health care professionals occur with almost alarming frequency. Medication errors can occur anywhere within the system of drug prescribing, distribution, and administration, and may be due to a mistake by a pharmacist, physician, nurse, or other medical personnel.
When you suffer a serious injury because of a medication or pharmacy error, it is important to learn what your rights are and what legal remedies may be available to you. Contact the experienced medication error attorneys at Young DeLoach PLLC, who know how to evaluate the legal liabilities of all of the parties involved and help you achieve the maximum recovery available from each liable party.
Among physicians, the most common errors were inappropriate dosing, prescribing the wrong medication, and failure to monitor for side effects. Pharmacists’ errors can be described as either mechanical or judgmental. A mechanical error is an error in the preparation and processing of the prescription, while a judgmental error is one of discretion in counseling, screening, or patient drug monitoring.
Some medication errors cause only mild or temporary reactions with no lasting ill effects. Others can cause serious injury or even death. If you have been seriously injured, or are the parent, spouse or family member of someone who has been seriously injured or died due to a medication error, there are many reasons to contact an experienced Florida medication error injury attorney right away. Valuable evidence can be lost or destroyed, or witnesses may forget important facts, if an investigation by your own counsel is delayed.
Injured people often ask, “How much is the settlement in a pharmacy error injury case?” Even the most experienced personal injury lawyer cannot give you an easy answer to that question. Many factors affect the settlement value of a personal injury case.
