Iowa Pharmacy Error Attorneys
Most people know very little about the science of prescription drugs. Instead, most patients rely on their doctors and pharmacists to know and understand the uses of prescription drugs, and trust them to give adequate thought and consideration in prescribing and selling these drugs. Unfortunately, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians can make a wide range of mistakes that can cause a patient to suffer serious illnesses and injuries.
If you or a loved one has been a victim of a pharmaceutical error, you may have grounds for seeking compensation by filing a medical malpractice claim. To learn more about your options, call Iowa pharmacy negligence lawyers LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at 877-327-2600.
When you go to fill a prescription, you expect to receive the medication you need to treat your condition. However, a pharmacist or pharmacy technician can make a wide variety of mistakes, including:
- Misreading or misinterpreting your prescription
- Giving you the wrong dosage
- Providing incorrect dosage instructions
- Filling your prescription with a similarly-named drug
- Giving you someone else’s medication
Taking the wrong prescription drug can cause serious adverse side effects and can even be fatal in some cases. Any time you pick up a prescription, it is in your best interest to research the particular drug, what it is used for, how it should be taken, and what the pills should look like, then compare your notes to the prescription you have been given.
It is often difficult to catch a pharmacy error until it is too late. When innocent people are harmed by careless or negligent pharmacists, our Iowa pharmacy negligence attorneys work hard to win the compensation they need.
