We Hold Pharmacies Accountable For Their Negligence
Just as we trust any health care provider, we trust that our pharmacy will give us the correct medication and alert us to any possible side effects or other issues. Unfortunately, pharmacists can make mistakes and the consequences can be devastating.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one to a pharmacy error, it is important to consult a lawyer as soon as possible. These cases can be complex, so you want to be certain that your attorney has the necessary experience and skill to protect your rights. At Olinde & Mercer, we have the advantage of experience on both sides of personal injury cases. Because we know how the defense is likely to act, we can proactively counter their strategy with ours. Please speak with us so we can determine how we may be able to help you.
The Consequences Of Pharmacy Errors Can Be Severe
You know how critical it is to take your medication consistently. When a pharmacy error occurs, you may not only miss your medication, you may unknowingly take a medication that can harm you.
Any carelessness or negligence by a pharmacist may result in:
- The wrong medication
- The wrong dose of medication
- Wrong or missing patient information
- Failure to note drug interactions
- Failure to discuss potential issues with the patient
These types of errors may result in serious injuries, permanent disability or wrongful death.
What Can You Do In This Situation?
After an injury or wrongful death caused by pharmacy negligence, you can hold the responsible parties accountable in a civil suit. Depending on the circumstances of your claim, we may be able to recover damages for medical expenses, lost income and benefits, and pain and suffering. In wrongful death suits, we may seek additional compensation for the loss of a loved one and their contribution to the household.
Working with economists, life-care planners, doctors and other experts, we will accurately value your past, present and future losses from the incident. This is a crucial part of recovering the full compensation you need to move forward.
