How do I know if I have a pharmacy malpractice claim against my local Houston pharmacy?

You may be able to pursue a pharmacy malpractice lawsuit against the Houston pharmacy that gave you the wrong medication, wrong dosage or drugs, or wrong instructions. Because there are many causes of medication errors, it is important to determine the exact cause of your situation in order to confirm if you have a valid case against the pharmacy or pharmacist involved.

Some ways to determine if you have a valid claim include:

  • Were you harmed by their mistake?
  • Did you go to the ER or incur medical bills as a result of taking the incorrect prescription?
  • Did you suffer injuries?
  • Did you miss out on work and earning your wages?

A pharmacist could have overlooked a drug allergy you have, neglected to check a pharmacy technician’s work, or failed to clarify a poorly handwritten prescription with your doctor. Additionally, a pharmacist or pharmacy technician could have confused a similar drug with your prescription—sending you home with the wrong drug—or they could have accidentally left off a decimal point that could have caused you to overdose.

Because there are many reasons why pharmacy errors can occur, it is in your best interest to save the medication bottle, prescription, medical bills, and anything related to this incident and contact a pharmaceutical malpractice lawyer to find out your rights. Generally, anyone who has been harmed from a pharmacist’s mistake should have a legal claim for damages due to a pharmacist’s breach in duty of care.
