I was given the wrong medicine by a CVS pharmacist, but I failed to check it before I took it. Can I still hold the pharmacy liable for my medical bills?


Yes. You can still hold the pharmacy responsible. It may have never occurred to you that a pharmacist could give you the wrong medication, fill the wrong dosage, or provide you with the wrong instructions. As a consumer, you trust the experts to give you the correct prescription. Unfortunately, medication mistakes at CVS pharmacies and many other chain pharmacies occur far too often.

Although we strongly stress that every customer should double check their medication to make sure their pills are the right name, color, and strength, it is ultimately the pharmacist’s responsibility to get you the correct medicine. Unfortunately, many pharmacy technicians are now filling prescriptions, which has led to many misfilled prescriptions. While pharmacists are supposed to check every prescription technicians fill, they have been known to miss things and make mistakes.

If you suffered any medical bills or injuries as a result of receiving the wrong medication, you should definitely receive compensation from the pharmacy involved. You may need compensation for your emergency room visit, hospital stay, surgical costs, prescription costs, rehabilitation, out-of-pocket costs, and pain and suffering.  Additionally, if you had to miss work and lost out on wages, you should also be able to make a financial recovery for lost income.
