Emotional Injuries: The Reality of Pharmacy Errors

While death and serious injuries are the worst outcome of pharmacy errors in Texas, many patients suffer emotional injuries as a result of the physical pain and suffering they endured. When a patient receives the wrong medication or wrong dosage of drugs, the consequences of a pharmacist’s negligence can be very serious.

When medication mix-ups and overmedication incidents occur, patients may suffer the following physical symptoms and injuries, including:

  • Seizures
  • Tremors
  • Vomiting
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness
  • Incoherence
  • Hemorrhaging
  • Other injuries

When a person suffers in any of the above ways, a trip to the hospital is likely what happens next. Not only do physical injuries occur as a result of pharmacy negligence, but a person can suffer from emotional problems the incident causes, such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Emotional distress
  • Embarrassment and humiliation
  • Fear

Typically, a medication-related injury can cause a person to fear taking medication again. Additionally, a person who has suffered as a result of a medication mix-up may wonder about the long-term consequences of the incident, which may lead to severe anxiety and a host of other emotional issues.

If you have suffered physical and emotional harm as a result of pharmacy negligence, you have right to be compensated for your emotional pain and suffering as well. However, because emotional distress is difficult to prove since it is psychological, you need a skilled attorney to help prove your emotional injuries to a judge and jury. To make sure you get the compensation you deserve following such a traumatic event, please call our compassionate and experienced attorneys for a free consultation at 888-526-7616 in Houston, or download a copy of our free report How to Make Pharmacies Pay for Injuries Caused by Medication Error.
