Do I have a legal claim against my local Walgreens pharmacy after losing some vision in my eye as a result of receiving ear drops instead of eye drops?

Yes. Walgreens pharmacists have a duty of care to provide their patients. When they fill the wrong medication—even if it is by mistake—patients have the right to seek financial damages for their injuries and losses. Because eye drops and ear drops sound similar, look similar, and use similar application methods, pharmacists should be more careful in filling these types of prescriptions.

Unfortunately, this type of pharmacy error is common. In fact, it may surprise you to know that many pharmacists have made this type of medication mistake before. This is why it is important that pharmacists double—even triple—check the work of pharmacy technicians and should review every prescription before it leaves the pharmacy. Unfortunately, pharmacists are often busy and overworked, letting mistakes slip by them—allowing medication mix-ups to occur and innocent people suffer.

When an eye injury occurs as a result of a patient receiving ear drops for an eye infection instead of receiving the appropriate eye drops, it can be serious and lead to a permanent injury and vision loss. As a result, a patient may incur unnecessary medical bills and may need time off of work to heal.

If you have suffered physical and financial injuries as a result of a pharmacy error, you are entitled to pursue a financial recovery. To learn more about your rights, you should request a free copy of our book: How to Make Pharmacies Pay for Injuries Caused by Medication Errors.
