Did You Suffer From Pharmacy Negligence?

I pharmiceuticalnegligence

When you pick up a prescription at a pharmacy, you should be able to trust that the drug will help, not hurt, you. Pharmacies have an alert system to warn them of dangerous drug interactions when people are on multiple medications. Additionally, a pharmacist should check each script to ensure it is accurate, including the right dose and prescribed dosage regimen. When pharmacists fail to warn of dangerous drug interactions or dispense the wrong dose or make errors compounding the mixture, they can be held liable for injuries and fatalities that occur as a result.

At the Law Office of Colonna & Doyle, in Lynnfield, we will hold negligent pharmacistsand throughout the North Shore area of Massachusetts accountable for injuries they cause to our clients.

Types of Pharmacy Negligence and Pharmacist Malpractice

Pharmacy negligence is a type of medical malpractice that can take various forms and can happen at any stage in the drug administration chain, including:

Simple Mistakes Resulting in Pharmaceutical Negligence

At Colonna & Doyle, we see overworked pharmacists and understaffed pharmacies commit errors that cause serious injury and even result in a wrongful death. Mistakes are more common than you may think. Ingesting the wrong medication, or too much of a medication, can result in catastrophic damage to your major organs or nervous system.

Additionally, many prescription benefits management companies (PBMs) that administer the prescription side of medical benefits have their own mail order pharmacy — companies like Medco, Express Scripts, Inc., or Caremark. In order to fill the volume of scripts they receive, they use an automated system and pharmacists are supposed to check each prescription before it leaves their facility. We also represent people who have been injured due to the wrong drug being mailed to them from a PBM mail order pharmacy.

Holding Pharmacists Accountable

If your pharmacist and his or her staff have failed in their duty to you, they have committed pharmaceutical negligence. We will investigate your claim with attention to detail, bringing on medical experts to establish your claim. Our small-firm service and big-firm results means that you can rely on us for aggressive advocacy until your case is resolved.
