What Is Pharmacy Malpractice?
You might have heard of pharmacy malpractice cases less often than other types of malpractice cases—there are plenty of stories about surgical tools being left inside a person or operations on the wrong body part, but less attention is paid to cases of pharmaceutical error.
Pharmacy malpractice involves errors made in your prescriptions. All too often, errors like this can be fatal. There are a few ways it can happen, such as:
- The pharmacist gave you the wrong medication or another person’s medication.
- The pharmacist didn’t warn you of serious adverse reactions.
- The pharmacist gave you the incorrect dosage.
Medication can be sensitive and tricky, and if your Boca Raton pharmacist made any of these errors, the results could be deadly or life-altering. If you believe this may be the case for you, speak to your doctor and pharmacist immediately and begin gathering evidence. And give us a call.
Liability and the Law for Pharmacy Malpractice in Boca Raton
Before you file your claim, you’ll need to keep in mind some of the laws and regulations for pharmacy malpractice. Determining fault can be tricky. While your prescription might have been filled by a pharmacy technician, for example, the head pharmacist or the pharmacy may be the defendant in your case.
The concept that the superior is responsible for the actions of employees will likely be a factor in your case. A pharmacy malpractice lawyer in Boca Raton can help you investigate who is truly responsible for your damages before you file.
And you’ll want to act as soon as possible. The statute of limitations on personal injury claims is four years, and malpractice claims can have even shorter deadlines in some cases. If you don’t act within the required amount of time, you’ll be barred from recovery, leaving you to cover the expenses for the harm a pharmacist has done to you.
