If I've suffered a medication error injury, how much is the pharmacy supposed to compensate me for my losses?
The precise amount of your claim depends on numerous factors unique to your particular case. In general, however, the categories of damages include:
- reasonable medical expenses in the past and future,
- lost wages,
- mental anguish,
- physical pain,
- disfigurement (in case of reactions such as rashes).
- punitive damages can be assessed against the pharmacy as well as the individual pharmacist, and loss of life can also be compensated.
