I Think It Was The Pharmacist, Not My Doctor, Who Made My Medication Error. If It Was The Pharmacist, Can I Still Recover Damages For My Injuries?


A: Yes, our New York medical malpractice attorneys represent people who have been hurt by a pharmacist's error. A pharmacist's mistake can have the same serious medical consequences as doctor's mistake. Often, pharmacists' mistakes occur when they provide the wrong drug to the wrong patient or when they provide the wrong dose of medication to the patient. This may occur because of a mix up in the pharmacy or because of an error reading the prescription submitted by the doctor.

The consequences of a pharmacist's mistake may include an adverse reaction to the drug, allowing the medication condition that prompted the prescription to go untreated, physical pain, or even death.
