Alabama Pharmacy Error Attorneys
Getting your prescription filled at your local pharmacy should be a pretty simple process. You get a prescription from your doctor, you provide it to the pharmacy and it fills the prescription properly. It seems like a fairly straightforward process.
All too often, however, the process is not so simple. Pharmacy errors occur all too frequently and often have serious consequences. Common prescription errors include:
- Providing the wrong medication
- Providing the wrong medication dosage
- Incorrect labels
- Incorrect or inadequate warning labels
- Dangerous drug interactions
- Incorrect dosage instructions
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a pharmacy error, contact the Drake Law Firm in Birmingham, Alabama. We have experience handling pharmacy error claims, and we are committed to helping people who have been injured by the negligence of pharmacies.
Pharmacy Errors Are a Serious Matter
Pharmacy errors may cause people to suffer serious or fatal injuries. When people receive the wrong medication, they may suffer an allergic reaction or serious side effects that were not anticipated. If a patient has high blood pressure, a bad heart, serious cholesterol problems or other health issues, they could potentially suffer a fatal injury if they do not receive the correct medication in a timely fashion. If a patient suffers from mental health challenges, receiving the wrong medication could increase his or her chances of depression, wild mood swings or other serious dangers.
Serious consequences may also arise if a patient receives the wrong medication dosage. Too low a dose may not enable a patient to manage serious health risks. Too high a dosage could increase blood pressure, increase risk of a heart attack or cause other serious dangers.
Improperly filled prescriptions may also cause a patient to develop a drug dependency. If a patient is given the wrong medication and it is a habit-forming drug, the patient may become chemically dependent on the drug and may suffer serious life and health consequences as a result.
