Yes. If you suffered injuries as a result of getting the wrong drug, the pharmacy in question should be held accountable. Far too often, Walgreens pharmacies and other pharmacy chains around this nation attempt to limit their liability when something goes wrong. They do this by letting the customer know they are sorry for the inconvenience and offering them a gift card to the store.
When a pharmacy makes this gesture, they are admitting wrong, and you may be entitled to more than a small gift card. You may have a lawsuit for your medical bills, mental anguish, and other damages. If you suffered injuries that cost you money in medical bills and lost income due to time away from work, you should have a claim for compensation.
To find out what your case may be worth or whether or not you have a valid prescription drug error lawsuit, you should contact an experienced lawyer who has successfully handled pharmacy error claims. An attorney will be able to review your case to determine if you should be compensated for your injuries, medical expenses, and other damages after receiving the wrong drug.
Unfortunately, pharmacy mistakes occur far too often, and chain pharmacies that put pressure on their staff to work at a fast-pace often make many mistakes. Pharmacists have a duty of care to fill the correct medicine and double check it before customers receive their medication. When they fail to do this, they can be held accountable for the consequences of their careless actions. For legal advice, contact Kennedy Hodges for a free consultation today at 888-526-7616.
