Medication errors take place on a daily basis in the United States. There are literally billions of prescriptions filled every year throughout the U.S. There are billions more dispensed in hospitals around the country. As little as three percent and as many as 15 percent of all prescriptions are filled in error, posing a risk of injury or death to the patient. Medication errors are so common that they account for about 25% of all medical malpractice cases. Moreover, medication errors are estimated to cause about 7,000 deaths per year.
There are many causes of medication errors. Illegible handwriting on the part of the physician can be a factor in some medication error cases, but the majority of pharmacy errors are due to the conduct of the pharmacy staff. Medication errors can be avoided through proper education, training, management and technology, but many large pharmacies are reluctant to take preventative actions that may reduce profit for the company. Accordingly, pharmacy errors continue to be a major problem for patients simply trying to fill a prescription.
Kennedy Hodges, LLP has handled pharmacy error cases against almost all the major pharmacies in the United States. We accept virtually all pharmacy error cases, from small to large. Even when the injury is minimal, we have been successful in achieving a settlement. We accept cases against all pharmacies, including:
We also handle cases against independent pharmacies and health care providers who commit medication errors in a hospital setting.
The principal office of Kennedy Hodges, LLP is located in Houston, Texas.
