Partner at Kennedy Hodges LLP practicing pharmacy error, medical malpractice and personal injury law
If you have been injured by a pharmacist’s mistake, you have likely needed a course of corrective treatment, time off of work, and suffered considerable personal strife as a result of your injury. You’re ready to take control and hold the pharmacy accountable for the error by filing a prescription drug error lawsuit, but you’re not sure what to expect in your case.

Luckily, the law team at Kennedy Hodges can help. As board-certified drug injury attorneys, we know that there are three things we must prove to win compensation in a pharmacy malpractice lawsuit:

  • The pharmacy committed malpractice. There are a few simple ways to prove the pharmacy was guilty of giving you the wrong medication or wrong dosage. We can compare your doctor’s prescription order with the pharmacy order, or by examining the label of the medication you received.

  • The pharmacy error caused symptoms, suffering or problems. The major factor in proving causation is determining whether the pharmacy error was a direct cause of the harm you sustained. The pharmacy may claim that your injury was due to a pre-existing condition, or that some other factor contributed to your suffering.

  • You suffered financial or physical loss as a result. A good pharmaceutical injury attorney will usually contact your doctor to ask him to testify that you were significantly injured, and that the medication mistake was to blame. Since the extent of your injury will likely affect the amount of damages you are awarded, your doctor must outline exactly what symptoms you suffered, how long you were affected, the seriousness of your injury, and how long you will be affected by the injury in the future.

The choice to pursue a case against your pharmacy should not be taken lightly. There are many factors that can affect your case and your settlement, and you want someone you can trust working with you through this difficult time in your life.
