Because I waived my rights to a pharmacy consultation, can I still pursue a lawsuit after suffering injuries from getting the wrong medication?

Yes. Although pharmacy consultations are a great way to stop a pharmacy error from occurring—giving a pharmacists one last chance to review the pills in your bottle—you still have rights to pursue a pharmacy error claim. Pharmacists have a duty to care for their patients and double check their work to make sure their patients are getting the correct medications.

When pharmacists fail to carefully check their pharmacy technicians’ work, or if they mix up your pills with another customer’s prescription, you have a right to pursue a pharmacy malpractice claim for your injuries. Some of the damages you may be entitled to after suffering injuries from the wrong medication include compensation for your hospital bills, rehabilitation, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.

Taking the wrong medication can be very serious and even fatal. This is why it is critical that you seek justice for what happened and speak up about it to help others avoid getting incorrect medications at their pharmacies.

Although it is always in your best interest to take a pharmacist up on a consultation to review your medication with him or her, you don’t lose your rights to pursue a pharmacy malpractice lawsuit if you choose not to have a consultation.
