If I got the wrong dosage of medication sent to me by an online pharmacy, can I file a lawsuit against the company?

 

Online pharmacies can sometimes send customers the wrong medication or the wrong dosage of the right medication. Unfortunately, pharmacy errors from Internet pharmacies occur frequently, and you shouldn’t have to pay the price for their lack of organization and wrongdoing. However, if you haven’t suffered any harm or injuries as a result of their mistake, you don’t have grounds to file a lawsuit.

Unfortunately, more and more pharmacy prescription errors are occurring by online pharmacies that do cause harm. When injuries happen as a pharmacy dosage error, you do have a legal right to sue the pharmacy for your damages. With the help of a pharmacy error attorney, you can learn how to claim the full damages you are entitled to under the law. For example, if the pharmacy mistake caused you an emergency room trip, hospital stay, medical expenses, and other doctor’s bills, you are entitled to hold the pharmacy accountable for the full costs that you incurred. Your damages may also include any related expenses you incurred as a result of taking the wrong dosage of drugs, such as the costs of future medical care, lost income, and more.

What Can I Do Now?

For help holding the online pharmacist and Internet pharmacy accountable for the incorrect dosage error that caused you harm, it is essential that you keep the medication the company sent you as well as your credit card statement for the online purchase.
