Can I sue a pharmacy for giving my child the wrong medication? The pharmacist said that the name was very similar to another prescription, and that is what caused the mix-up.

Yes, you should be able to file a prescription drug error lawsuit for damages and injuries your child suffered. When a drug mix-up occurs, it is considered pharmacy malpractice, which is a form of medical malpractice law; negligent pharmacists and pharmacies may be held responsible for the medication errors they have made.

Pharmacists may mistakenly fill the wrong prescription because it looks similar or sounds similar to another medication. When a customer receives the wrong medication, the wrong dosage of the correct drug, or the wrong instructions with the correct drug, he or she can suffer health complications and serious side effects.

While all patients should discuss their prescriptions with their doctors and pharmacists in order to take an active role in protecting their own health and safety, patients sometimes may not know they received a sound-alike or look-alike drug until it is too late.

If your child suffered injuries from this pharmacy mistake, you could be entitled to compensation for your child’s medical bills, pain and suffering, and more. To find out more about filing a lawsuit for financial compensation after the adverse effects of a pharmacy error, contact a drug error attorney to discuss your pharmacy malpractice case and to learn more about your legal options.
