If you have received the wrong medication or wrong dosage of medication that has caused you harm, you have been the victim of pharmacy malpractice. Although no one at the pharmacy intended to cause you any harm, prescription errors are unfortunately the result of pharmacy negligence. Because pharmacists are trained healthcare professionals, they have a duty of care to protect their patients from harm. When they make mistakes with customers’ medications, they can be guilty of pharmacy malpractice.

How You Could Harm Your Case

If you are a victim of a pharmacy error, you deserve to be able to collect the compensation you need and deserve. Keep in mind that you can harm your case if you take part in the following:

  • Failing to seek medical treatment
  • Giving the pharmacy back the incorrect medication (you should keep it for evidence)
  • Taking them up on their offer of a complimentary gift card
  • Failing to hire a pharmacy error attorney to guide you through the settlement process

Pharmacies like CVS and Walgreens often want to brush their mistakes under the rug. They will often apologize and possibly offer you a gift card for the inconvenience. They are hoping that you will brush this incident off as a mistake and accept their apology and gift card. However, you deserve to be compensated for your medical bills, time off work, pain and suffering, and any possible long-term effects.
