Pharmacy Misfilled Prescription & Mistake Claims

Pharmacy Misfilled Prescription & Mistake Claims
Pharmacy mistakes and misfilled prescriptions can cause devastating problems. From pharmacy technicians that have confused ear cleaner for eye drops to be given to an infant to mistaking one medication for another causing heart problems or death to a consumer, giving a person the wrong amount or type of medication can cause major problems. 
If you have any questions about pharmacy mistakes, feel free to send an e-mail to pharmacy-mistake@toxicexposurelaw.com or submit an inquiry.
Many pharmacies are great and well run, but others try to cut costs and have underpaid and under trained pharmacy technicians handle too much in the prescription filling process.  It often will take a pharmacist to recognize dangerous drug interactions or determine if similar medication names have been accidentally confused or switched.  Also it is always good to have a qualified pharmacy with quality control procedures in effect to prevent mistakes in amount of a medication or type of a drug from being mixed up.
Unfortunately, pharmacy mistakes occur when pharmacists and pharmacy technicians get too busy or are just not paying attention.  If you feel you have been seriously injured by pharmacy mistake or have lost a loved one due to a medication mistake, it is important to investigate the claim and make sure that it does not happen again.
