One of the hidden benefits of a pharmacy lawsuit is that you help prevent the same problem from occurring to other people. Pharmacies don't take complaints seriously unless they are hit in the pocketbook. Making them pay for prescription mistakes encourages them to hire more competent pharmacists and take additional steps to avoid pharmacy errors in the future.
