Yes. If you suffered injuries after a pharmacy made a mistake with your prescription you can file a claim for compensation of your injuries.
Pharmacy errors occur at a surprisingly high rate. Big chain pharmacies often overwork their staff and improperly train inexperienced pharmacy technicians. Pharmacists have a duty of care to give you your proper medication and if you took the wrong medication or were given the wrong dosage instructions you may be able to file a claim for compensation.
Pharmacy errors can include:
- Pharmacy gives you the wrong medication;
- Pharmacy transcribes the wrong dosage or dosage instructions;
- Pharmacy gives you someone else’s medication and you took it unknowingly;
- Pharmacy makes children's prescription errors.
