Many people think that it’s not worth it to file a pharmacy error claim because they were “not seriously injured.” What these victims don’t realize how important it is to hold a pharmacy accountable for its mistakes.
Here are just a few reasons to pursue your drug error case:
- Prevention. Your actions will make the pharmacy aware of a potential hazard to its customers and prevent the injury from happening again.
- Compensation. Don’t assume that your case doesn’t have value just because you aren’t permanently injured. You can still receive compensation for medical treatments, pain and suffering and lost income caused by the accident.
- Recuperation. Even minor injuries need time to heal. A person who has spent three days incapacitated from nausea will likely not be able to work, resulting in physical impairment and lost wages.
Minor injuries should not be ignored because they may also be symptoms of later complications. In some cases, victims will be unaware that they are suffering long-term effects of a drug injury until they suffer a serious event, such as a stroke or heart attack. The injury may be assumed to be a result of high blood pressure or a bad diet; as a result, the victim will likely continue taking the medication that caused his health complications.
