There are a number of things you should do when someone you love is suffering from a drug error injury. In these heightened circumstances, it’s hard to know what to do first, but our experienced pharmacy error attorneysare here to help.
- Get medical help. The most important thing is your loved one’s health. As soon as you discover the mistake, call your doctor to see what the most likely effects will be. If needed, go to the emergency room (call an ambulance if you are unable to drive).
- Gather all evidence. You will be given a lot of information in the course of your case, and it’s hard to process it all at once. Keep all medical records, documentation and, of course, the packaging your loved one’s medication came in. It may be useful later.
- Know your rights. The hospital or pharmacy responsible for the mistake may contact you in the days after the accident. DO NOT talk to them without the advice of a trusted drug injury attorney, since you could forfeit your right to compensation.
The attorneys at Kennedy Hodges understand that this will be an overwhelming and terrifying time for you and your family. That’s why we offer a FREE, no-obligation legal consultation to make sure you keep your right to compensation.
