San Diego Pharmacy Error Attorney
About Pharmacy Mistakes and Medical Malpractice
Although most people associate medical malpractice with doctors and treatment received while at a hospital or other medical facility, it may also be related to conduct by a San Diego pharmacist or pharmacy. Pharmacy errors are related to medication errors and prescription errors and occur when a pharmacist dispenses the wrong medication or the wrong dose. Unfortunately, this occurs more frequently than one may think. Whether this results from a pharmacist accidentally picking up the wrong medication off the shelf or because a prescription slip is difficult to read, a pharmacy error may cause a patient to suffer serious side effects and may even cause catastrophic or fatal injury.
Making an assessment of your legal rights and your options after a pharmacy error is important. At Pacific Attorney Group, we offer a free case evaluation with a San Diego medical malpractice lawyer to talk about what has happened. With our experience in this field and the resources to actually investigate the matter, we can determine what occurred and whether the pharmacist, pharmacy or perhaps your doctor can be held liable for your injuries.
Consequences of San Diego Pharmacy Errors
The severity of a pharmacy error and how it will impact a patient will vary depending on the type of drug and dosage amount. In some cases, a patient will only experience mild discomfort or may not even know that a mistake has been made. In others, a patient will be facing hospitalization and exorbitant medical bills to remedy a situation that could have easily been prevented if the pharmacist had taken care when filling a prescription.
