Pharmacy Error Lawyer in Washington, DC
Representing Victims Injured by Prescription Mistakes
Modern medical science and technology have created amazing pharmaceutical products that have allowed our society to live longer, healthier, and more productive lives than ever before. Pharmaceuticals and medications are powerful drugs that are designed to treat specific ailments. As they also pose various side effects, medical professionals take extreme caution when choosing to prescribe a certain medication to patients. Once a prescription is made, patients are required to obtain their medication from a pharmacy. Pharmacies and employees have as serious a responsibility to ensure the safety of patients as medical professionals, and when they fail to exercise care, caution, and diligence when doling out prescriptions, they place consumers in significant danger.
Using a prescription that one was not intended to use, or that exceeds the prescribed dosage, can have devastating consequences. According to statistics, more than 7,000 deaths occur each year as the result of prescription mistakes, with thousands more suffering injuries and substantial damages. Patients have every right to believe that pharmacies will properly fill prescriptions and that the appropriate instructions will be provided. When this is not the case and injuries or illnesses occur, victims and their families may be eligible to pursue a recovery of their physical, emotional, and / or financial damages by filing a personal injury claim with the assistance of our Washington, DC personal injury lawyers.
