Yes. When you suffer injuries as a result of pharmacy error, you are entitled to more compensation than just your hospital bills. Not only should your emergency room visit be covered, but you should also be compensated for your doctor’s appointments, tests, surgery, rehabilitation, and medication and prescription costs. Basically, any bill related to your medical care as a result of receiving the incorrect dosage of medication should be covered.
Depending on the seriousness of your injuries and whether or not you could or couldn’t work as a result of your injuries, you may also be compensated for your lost wages, disfigurement, loss of the enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and other losses.
Because you trusted your pharmacist to dispense the correct dosage of medication, you shouldn’t feel badly holding that pharmacist responsible for the damages you have incurred. Doctors and pharmacists can be held liable for negligently prescribing or filling the wrong dosage of medication and unsafe amounts of medication.
To learn more about your legal rights to compensation, you should speak with an experienced pharmacy malpractice lawyer. In order to determine your case worth a lawyer would need to speak with you about the details of your case to understand your injuries and prognosis.
