What is Pharmaceutical Malpractice?

Pharmacy malpractice is considered a form of medical malpractice and is caused by pharmacists, or pharmacy technicians, failing to competently perform their medical duties. Pharmacy malpractice can cause devastating, debilitating, and life-threatening complications. Unfortunately, pharmacy errors can have fatal consequences as well — at least one death every day is attributed to a medication error. Each year, more than a million people in the united states are injured due to a medication distribution error.

There are many opportunities for pharmaceutical mistakes to occur, such as prescribing, repackaging, dispensing, administering, or monitoring. Pharmaceutical negligence oftentimes comes in the form of disregard for safety procedures and protocols, lack of communication between pharmacy technicians and pharmacists, and poor understanding of products and their usages (CDC). Regardless of how a pharmaceutical error occurs, victims of such negligence are entitled to compensation for their injuries, illnesses, medical costs, lost wages, and more.

If you or a loved one have suffered from an injury after a medication error, contact Thomas J. Henry Law immediately. Our experienced pharmacy malpractice lawyers are available to take your call and evaluate your claim.

Common Types of Pharmacy Malpractice Injuries

A variety of injuries can occur as a result of pharmacy malpractice. Injuries and illnesses due to a medical error can be evident soon after taking a drug or take years to develop. Illnesses and injuries that may be caused by a medical error include:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Overdose
  • Birth defects or pregnancy complications
  • Organ failure
  • Death

Common Types of Pharmacy Malpractice Errors

  • Dosage errors — this occurs when the pharmacist fills a prescription with a dose that is higher or lower than what was prescribed by the doctor.
  • Incorrect prescriptions — this can occur when the doctor prescribes the wrong medication, or when the pharmacist fills the wrong prescription.
  • Patient/prescription mix-ups — this can occur when the pharmacist accidentally gives out the wrong prescription or switches two patients’ prescriptions.
  • Failure to counsel patient — part of a pharmacist’s job is to provide information to the patient about possible drug interactions and complications.
  • Prescribing medication without a license — this may occur when an “internet pharmacy” fills a medication order online without a valid prescription.

Your Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions
to help you make critical decisions, navigate
legal process and help you get justice.

Following an accident, there are always more questions
than answers. At Thomas J. Henry, we’re here to answer
any questions you have about your injury case.

Medical malpractice is negligent treatment by medical providers, such as a doctor, hospital, nurse, chiropractor, therapist, or other medical practitioners. If a medical practitioner fails to act per accepted standards of practice in the diagnosis or treatment of a condition, they may be responsible for all damages that result.
Medical errors occur at a higher rate than originally believed. According to the British Medical Journal, an estimated 210,00 – 400,000 deaths each year are associated with medical errors. With an estimated 251,454 deaths in 2014 alone, medical errors would be the third leading cause of death in the United States behind only heart disease and cancer.
It is generally a good idea to start documenting. Document what exactly happened during the procedure and everything that occurs afterward. Take as many notes as you can regarding the surgery or procedure, lab results, an MRI or CT scan results. Receive a copy of your medical records and charts, too. Document the names of your doctors, nurses, surgeons, and any other healthcare professionals involved. Keeping a record and documenting these items may help your cause if a malpractice lawsuit is necessary. Our medical malpractice lawyers can assist you in collecting evidence and documenting, so it is important to contact Thomas J. Henry as soon as you can.
Usually, to make a viable malpractice case, you need to first establish the applicable standard of care that was appropriate to the circumstances. That means the level of care and skill that your doctor (or whoever harmed you) should have acted with, based on accepted medical practices in the same community. Next, you need to show exactly how the defendant deviated from that standard in treating you, and precisely how you were harmed by the provision of substandard care. In most medical malpractice lawsuits, all of these elements need to be established by a qualified expert medical witness.
Medical malpractice cases are complicated, expensive, and are invariably hard-fought. It would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, for a layperson to have the expertise necessary to prepare for a medical malpractice case. Thomas J. Henry has the legal and financial resources necessary to pursue medical malpractice lawsuits.
The length of a medical malpractice lawsuit can vary greatly from case to case. Certain variables that affect the length of time a case can take include the complexity of the case, the willingness of the insurance company for the doctor, hospital, nurse, chiropractor, or other medical practitioners to resolve the case, and how long it takes to fully determine your damages from the medical malpractice.
