Prescription And Drug Related Injuries or Deaths

Return to Areas Of Practice


Pharmacists, as do other healthcare professionals, make mistakes.  In the event a pharmacist fills a prescription with the wrong drug, injury and/or death can result.  In this case, the customer/patient has a claim against the pharmacist and the pharmacy.

Medical doctors and other healthcare professionals can negligently prescribe medication to a patient without first checking whether the patient has an allergy to the medication. 

Similarly, a patient can be given a drug without the doctor first warning of its possible side effects.  Injury may result and the patient has a right of action against the doctor and the medical facility. 

There are a myriad of circumstances surrounding a pharmaceutical injury.  If you think you have a claim and would care to discuss it, please give me a call at 206-632-6500.
