My child’s medication had the wrong dosage instructions from the pharmacy and now he is in the hospital with side effects. Can I sue the pharmacy for this error?
Receiving the wrong dosage instructions from a pharmacy can be extremely dangerous, but these mistakes happen much more often than pharmacies would like us to know.
Medical errors are a bigger threat to small children than adults. Their organs and immune system are not fully developed like an adult’s so even a small error in dosage can cause serious injury. What’s more, children’s medication can be tablets, liquids, or chewable forms and all of these factors can increase the risk of pharmacy error.
What can you do about children’s pharmacy errors? If your child suffered injury because of a pharmacy dosage error you have rights to take action against the pharmacy and hold them accountable for the mistake.
