Experienced Prescription Error Attorneys Serving White Plains, New York  City and the Hudson Valley

The consequences of taking the wrong medication, or taking the wrong dosage, can be devastating and will often make patients sicker, not healthier. In some circumstances, a medication error or pharmacy misfill can result in the patient’s wrongful death. Many prescription errors and misfills happen when pharmacists fail to adhere to specific rules governing the filling and verification of prescriptions. Corporate employers frequently require pharmacy personnel to fill a certain quota of prescriptions each day, which results in many pharmacists working too quickly. In many cases, the quantity of prescriptions filled is emphasized over the quality of the prescriptions provided. Additionally, there are a number of people involved in the prescription filling process, including pharmacists, pharmacy clerks, pharmacy technicians, and other staff. This creates multiple instances during which errors can occur.

Examples of some of the categories of damages that are available to victims of pharmacy errors include:

  •  medical expenses
  • physical therapy
  •  lost wages and loss of earning capacity
