How Common Are Medication Errors?
Some estimates are that over 51 million dispensing errors by pharmacies take place every year.
Pharmacy errors happen in several ways:
- You get the wrong medicine.
- You get the wrong dose.
- Your medicine is mislabeled.
- The pharmacy fails to spot and prevent potentially dangerous drug interactions.
- The pharmacy fails to inform you about the risks of taking a medication.
- The pharmacy fails to check your existing medications for any problems involving a new prescription.
These errors can happen when pharmacy employees are over-worked. They can happen when pharmacies hire under-qualified staff. And they can happen when pharmacy staff members are under too much pressure to fill prescriptions fast.
The lawyers of The Bowling Christiansen Law Firm have extensive experience—and extraordinary success—litigating pharmacy error cases. Our firm handles cases against local pharmacies as well as national retail chains.
The consequences of pharmacy error can be severe, resulting in brain injury and other catastrophic injuries. They can even result in death, potentially meaning the family of the medication error victim could have a wrongful death claim.
