|Pharmacy Malpractice And Mis-Fills
If a pharmacy dispenses the wrong medication to a customer, and the customer takes the medication, and as a result suffers serious medical complications, the pharmacy will be liable for the resulting damages.
Pharmacy errors and mis-fills happen far more often than is generally known. Often, no serious injury or damages result. But sometimes, the results can be extremely serious.
CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENT FOR PHARMACY MIS-FILL
For years, our client Maria, a child care worker and mother of four, had her doctor’s prescriptions filled at the neighborhood branch of a well known drug store chain.
One day, the pharmacy made a whopping blunder. In filling Maria’s prescription, they gave her medication intended for another customer, but dispensed it to Maria labeled with Maria’s name and address on it.
Maria took the medication for several days, when she developed a serious reaction to the medication, and discovered that the drug she was taking was not intended for her but for someone else. Unfortunately for Maria, the pharmaceutical error resulted in the permanent aggravation of pre-existing respiratory condition that would compromise both the quality and length of her life.
After some hard fought litigation, a confidential settlement resulted.
