How Children Recover After Suffering Injuries from Wrong Drug Labels

It is a sad fact, but there are many different types of prescription errors that can injure children, including the wrong drug and wrong dosage. Medication labels can play a significant part in preventing prescription errors and injuries from occurring to innocent children. Unfortunately, drug labels are sometimes wrong and can contain incorrect information, such as:

  • Drug name
  • Dose
  • Instructions
  • Time intervals

When a wrong drug label is affixed to a child’s prescription, or the instructions are incorrect, a parent may have no way of knowing that the pharmacy mistake has occurred. Sadly, a child may suffer serious injuries as a result. After sustaining injuries as a result of a pharmacy error, a child needs to recover properly.

3 Ways Children Can Make a Recovery

  1. Medical Recovery – Injured children need to be treated by medical professionals following injuries from incorrect medication labels. After a child takes the wrong dose or drug, a child may need to go to the emergency room or even stay overnight at a hospital in order to get treated properly.
  2. Emotional Recovery – If an injured child is worried about taking medication again following an injury due to the wrong drug label, this may be a sign that a child is traumatized. Sometimes children who suffer a traumatic event may need ongoing counseling and psychological treatment to make a full recovery.
  3. Financial Recovery – Medical bills and costs for psychological treatment can quickly add up. When children suffer due to someone else’s mistakes, parents should not have to be out any money. Affected children and their families are entitled to pursue financial compensation for such expenses.

For help making sure your child and family make a full financial recovery following a pharmacy mistake, contact the pharmacy error attorneys at Kennedy Hodges for a free consultation at 888.526.7616 today.
