The Top 5 Biggest Regrets of CVS Prescription Error Victims

David W. Hodges
Partner at Kennedy Hodges LLP practicing pharmacy error, medical malpractice and personal injury law

If you become the victim of a prescription drug error, you will no doubt feel scared, confused, and shocked by what has happened. This is understandable, since you have just experienced a serious violation of trust.

You may find that the pharmacy could try to use your own emotions against you. Frightened and alone, many victims exchange their medication without thinking to report the incident or seek a case against the person at fault, missing their chance to be compensated for unnecessary suffering. 

Here are the top five things drug injury victims wish they had known after their prescription error occurred:

  • Double-check all meds. Most prescription errors can be caught before they cause harm. Regardless of who was responsible for making the mistake, many victims wish they had taken this simple step and avoided their medication injury altogether. 
  • Keep the bottle. Numerous victims seriously damaged their CVS drug error case by giving the incorrect medication back to the pharmacy. ALWAYS keep the wrong medication, bottle, and packaging: If they caused you harm, they are evidence in your case.
  • Don’t accept an apology. Chain pharmacies expect their staff to make mistakes, so they train their employees on how to avoid complaints and legal inquiries. Pharmacies hope that if their employees apologize and offer an exchange or refund, the matter will be resolved quickly, without considering how badly you may be hurt.
  • Don’t wait! Some victims put off seeking a case against the pharmacy because they do not realize the full extent of their injury or they are unsure about hiring a lawyer. Unfortunately, you have only a small window of time to file a medication error lawsuit—if time runs out, you cannot seek compensation.
  • Get the facts. The pharmacy that caused your injury is hoping that you will give up your legal rights because you don’t know how to start your case. The simplest way to get information is to call a board-certified prescription error attorney for a FREE, no-obligation consultation.
