Our firm represented the estate of an 83-year-old man who was given the wrong medication by his pharmacy. The medication caused a severe and sudden reaction with another medication he taking at the time and led to his death.
This case settled for $1.7 million.
The failure of pharmacists or doctors to take into account how a prescription medication will interact with medications is a form of a medical malpractice. We invite you to learn just how often the wrong prescription is given, more about why dispensing the wrong prescription medication is medical malpractice, and more about the specific problem of pharmacy mistakes so that you can protect your family from this danger and so that you can take action if you or a loved one has been hurt.
