It is with good reason that laws, doctors and pharmacies control use of medications. The fact is, many types of medicine are hazardous. People who take medications can be seriously injured or die when they are given wrong doses or wrong medications.
If you suffered harm or lost a loved one in or near Chicago because of a medication error or a pharmacy error, lawyers at Trapp & Geller can advise you of your rights. We can investigate and if negligence was involved, we can prepare a claim for compensation to cover medical bills and acknowledge pain and suffering.
WAS YOUR INJURY THE RESULT OF A PRESCRIPTION MISFILL? OUR ATTORNEYS IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, CAN INVESTIGATE
Prescribing physicians, pharmacists and nurses who administer medications all have a responsibility to exercise care for the sake of patients’ safety. You may have been injured through a prescription error or administration of incorrect dosages of medication during surgery, during dental care or in a hospital or nursing home. The ultimate cause may have been a doctor’s handwriting error, a transcription error or mixed-up labels.
Whether you received your drugs from Walgreen’s, CVS, a private medical clinic pharmacy or a hospital pharmacy, the pharmacy may share responsibility. Did a pharmacist or other representative of the pharmacy fail to communicate clearly how you should take a certain medication? Did your doctor or pharmacist not screen you properly for allergies or other medications you were taking that could interfere with the new prescription?
