Received the Wrong Dosage of Prescription Medication? A Medication Error Lawyer Can Help

Patients do not expect to be given the wrong dosage of medication at a hospital or at a pharmacy; however, dosage errors happen far too often – seriously injuring or even killing innocent patients. Although there are procedures in place at hospitals and pharmacies to reduce dosage errors, they still occur.

One reason dosage errors take place at pharmacies is wrong dosage instructions. When patients pick up their prescriptions at the pharmacy, there is a generated label on the pill bottle or medication packet to inform them how much medication they should take and how many times a day they should take it. It is common for most people to follow the dosage instructions without second guessing them. This is because most people trust their doctors and their pharmacists, even though some have been known to make fatal medication mistakes.

Consider These Questions…

What if the doctor wrote the wrong dosage on the prescription, or what if the pharmacist filled the prescription wrong? What if the pharmacist couldn’t read the doctor’s writing and made his or her best guess? What if the pharmacist was tired that day or distracted and didn’t catch the dosage error? And what if the dosage error was the result of an incorrect dosage instruction label?

In any event, if the wrong dosage caused you injuries or fatally injured someone you love, the pharmacist, pharmacy, doctor, or hospital could be to blame for prescribing the incorrect dosage of medication. 

Sadly, there are many people who are injured each year by taking the wrong dosage of medication that was prescribed to them. Some of these injuries have been minor sicknesses and others have suffered catastrophic injuries, disabling injuries, and even fatal injuries from the wrong dosage. It is inexcusable that these mistakes occur because pharmacists and doctors are expected to exercise great care and caution when filling prescriptions or prescribing or administering them. 

A Pharmacy Error Attorney Can Help

If a medication error, such as receiving the wrong dosage, caused you to become ill, or if an incorrect dosage caused your loved one fatal injuries, you should talk with a Texas medication error lawyer for help. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and other damages.
