Pharmacy errors can happen when the wrong dose of a prescription is given, when the wrong medication is given and in other circumstances. When that duty of care is breached and the breach causes harm to the patient, a pharmacy and pharmacist can be held liable for damages.
A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against a pharmacy and pharmacist, alleging negligence in the dispensing of a medication.
The complaint was filed earlier this month alleging that the failure to provide the proper dosage of medication contributed to death. The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount greater than $50,000.
