Pharmacy and Prescription Errors Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
Modern medicine has achieved many advances in how to bring healing to human frailties and diseases. Some of the most remarkable ones are synthetic medications. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates 48.9% of the US population used a prescription drug to treat or cure an ailment in the last 30 days. While the number of people being helped is remarkable, with such a large number of medications being prescribed and used, pharmacy and prescription errors are bound to happen.
The popular medical website WebMD claims that 2% of all prescriptions are dispensed incorrectly. Pharmacy and prescription errors can occur for a number of reasons, the most common of which are:
- Misreading a written prescription
- Giving an incorrect dosage
- Mixing incompatible medications
- Medication is not given, or given late
The most common reason for pharmacy and prescription errors is simple fatigue. Too many people needing too many prescriptions filled or dispensed and not enough help to go around. If you or a loved one were harmed because of a pharmacy or prescription error, you may be eligible to file a medical malpractice lawsuit to recover damages.
