Closely Examine Your Medications
One way to avoid any injuries from an error is to closely examine your medication before taking it. Count the number of pills, ensure that you have the correct pills (by doing research to see a picture of the pills), and look at the billing and itemization to ensure you are being given the correct pills. You can also call to verify the dosage with your doctor if you have any indications that the dosing instructions may be incorrect.
Pharmacy And Medication Error Injuries
Injuries that result from medication and pharmacy errors can range from minor to severe. Whether an allergic reaction resulted or more serious injuries such as brain damage, heart attack, stroke or others occurred, our firm can assist you in taking action against the negligent party. We have extensive experience handling these types of cases, as well as wrongful death cases that resulted from the wrong prescription or medication dose.
