If my daughter experienced excessive sleep after she received the wrong dosage of medicine from a pharmacy, do I have a legal claim?

It depends. Just sleep alone might not qualify you to receive monetary damages; however, if you went to the emergency room or your child’s primary care doctor, you may be entitled to reimbursement for your medical bills associated with the pharmacy error.

Sometimes excessive sleep can be a sign that your daughter received a powerful toxin—which could damage her liver. This is why it is critical that you have your child thoroughly examined by a doctor to determine if she is suffering from a toxic overdose.

In the meantime, it is important that you keep the prescription bottle, label, instructions, and anything elses you received at the pharmacy. This will help prove that the pharmacy did give your daughter the incorrect medication dosage. Also, this evidence will help strengthen your case if you do decide to pursue a legal claim.

If it is determined that your daughter suffered harm from receiving the incorrect dosage of drugs, then your family may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and other damages. Because these types of cases can be complex, it is in your best interest to speak with an attorney experienced in pharmacy malpractice claims.

A lawyer who has represented prescription drug error victims will be able to help you seek justice and make sure this type of pharmacy error doesn’t occur to another child or family.
