Can I hold the state liable for its lack of oversight and for the state board failing to inspect a pharmacy that caused me harm?

More than likely your claim will be with the pharmacy and pharmacist that caused the pharmacy error and not with the state. Although every state has a State Board of Pharmacy in place to help improve consumer safety and protect customers against pharmacy errors, states often lack the staff and funding to inspect pharmacies on a regular basis.

In fact, most pharmacies aren’t inspected for years, and some pharmacies haven’t been inspected for over a decade. This is because there are really no federal rules that mandate when state inspectors have to inspect pharmacies. Also, since there are usually only a handful of inspectors and thousands of pharmacies, inspection agents aren’t able to make the necessary rounds to protect consumers.

While some states do a better job at keeping tabs on pharmacies, other states lack the oversight to protect pharmacy patients from prescription mistakes made by negligent pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Unfortunately, state boards cannot be held accountable for failing to inspect a pharmacy that caused you harm. The only way to seek justice is to file a lawsuit against the pharmacy that caused you to incur medical bills as a result of the injuries you suffered.

If you are interested in pursuing a claim to make a financial recovery and to hold the negligent party responsible for your injuries, you should learn about your rights.
