Serious Injuries Can Occur When Pharmacists Make Mistakes
Pharmacy and medication errors occurring either with your local pharmacy or in hospitals and in outpatient care situations may be the basis for a claim.
When injuries have been minor, it is often not practical to bring an action against a pharmacy or a pharmacist who has made an error. When injuries are significant, however, Britcher, Leone & Sergio, LLC, may be able to help.
What Can Be Included in Seeking Compensation?
If you or a loved one suffered serious harm or if death occurred when a New Jersey pharmacy or pharmacist was negligent, talk to a prescription error attorney at Britcher, Leone & Sergio, LLC, in Glen Rock or Morristown. Lawyers at Britcher, Leone & Sergio, LLC, can evaluate your case and determine if negligence occurred, whether the injury is serious enough to bring a claim and what should be included in a claim. Frequently, claims are made for:
- Follow-up medical care
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Lost wages
- Acknowledgment of pain and suffering
- Lost enjoyment of life
Liability in the case of a prescription drug error may ultimately lie with the prescribing physician, the pharmacy, the pharmacist, the prescription-filling computer program or the drug manufacturer.
