Our Morristown attorneys work hard to discover and analyze factors that cause drug injuries that harm our clients. Manufacturer defects are one type of pharmaceutical error that sometimes makes people ill. Physicians’ errors are another source of drug injuries. Drug store mistakes sometimes result in pharmaceutical errors. Pharmacists may be unable to decipher doctors’ handwriting, or they may miss a zero and issue unusually large or small quantities of medications.
Dispensing errors at pharmacies may involve:
- Dispensing wrong doses of the correct medication
- Erroneously substituting inferior generic drugs for named brand versions without consulting with doctors or patients
- Giving customers the wrong medications
All these types of pharmaceutical errors can have serious consequences. Did you become ill after a pharmacist delivered the wrong pill or the wrong dose to you (either in a drugstore or in a hospital)? Did your loved one suffer brain damage or die because of a pharmaceutical error? Perhaps you do not know the answer, but you suspect something was not right about the medications that your family member received. As soon as possible, talk to a product liability lawyer.
