What compensation is available following my dad’s passing from contaminated medication?

We are saddened to hear about your father’s tragic death from medication contamination. In situations like this, you and your family do have legal rights to recover financial compensation. While this may be a single case brought against a pharmacy, compounding pharmacy or drug company, your tragic situation may be shared by others if their family members were victims of the same contaminated drug. This means you may file an individual pharmacy malpractice claim or be part of a class action suit. Filing a lawsuit will also help to prevent drug errors from happening to others.

The compensation you can recover can include both compensatory damages and punitive damages. Examples of compensatory damages include the monetary loss your family suffered from your father’s passing, for instance, lost income, his future salary, medical bills and funeral costs.

Punitive damages may also be granted to families seeking compensatory damages. These damages help punish those accountable for your loss. It is a way of punishing a company or person in civil court for committing a crime against society. These damages also help warn other individuals or companies of the possible outcomes if they take part in this type of negligent behavior.

For help determining what your case should be worth and to make sure you protect your family’s interests and seek justice, you need to talk with an experienced pharmacy error lawyer. File a complaint today with help from Kennedy Hodges. We will answer your questions in a free consultation at 888-526-7616.
