row of pill bottlesThere’s no question that pharmaceutical advancements have greatly lengthened the average lifespan and improved the quality of many lives. Unfortunately, whether due to poor handwriting or absent-mindedness, prescriptions aren’t always filled correctly. Here’s a brief overview of the risks involved with pharmacy errors and how a personal injury law firm like Sussman & Simcox can help in a case of medical malpractice or pharmacy error.

Illness

Since many people rely on prescription drugs to mitigate the symptoms of serious conditions, a pharmacy error can cause many complications. Receiving too many or not enough pills may be a hassle, but getting the wrong prescription can be devastating. Without the appropriate medication, patients may be negatively affected by their conditions or suffer from a reaction caused by combined drugs that were not intended to be taken together.

Death

Of course, a pharmacy error can cause much worse effects than an illness or injury. If a pharmacist fills prescriptions incorrectly, a simple mistake could cost lives. If not outright fatal, the incorrect medication could cause lasting damage.

How an Attorney Can Help

If you incur medical bills because of a wrong prescription, a personal injury law firm can help you hold the pharmacy accountable and receive the compensation you need for a speedy recovery. If a loved one dies due to complications from taking the wrong prescription, a skilled lawyer can help you hold the pharamcy accountable for their costly mistake and obtain compensation that you deserve.
