Pharmacy Errors Lawyer
in Austin, TX

Prescription drugs are designed to help individuals cope with a range of conditions, illnesses and injuries. However, with the number of prescriptions on the rise across Texas and the rest of the U.S., the number of medication errors is also on the rise. Medication and pharmacy errors can cause serious and permanent injuries and in some cases, result in death.

Types of Pharmacy Errors

Pharmacists under pressure to get prescriptions filled as quickly as possible may commit or contribute to errors, including:

  • Mislabeling of drugs

  • Kids getting adult doses
  • Drugs that are contraindicated for conditions
  • Drug interactions
  • Failure to account for prescription allergies

Unfortunately, understaffing and a range of other issues and distractions often contribute to medication errors in hospital settings, with serious consequences. If you or a loved one has been injured due to the wrong dose of medication, or if you have been given another patient’s medication, or suffered from another medication error in a hospital, our personal injury firm can help.
