Information for Victims of Prescription and Pharmacy Errors

Most states set their own specific time limits in which you can file a claim for personal injury or negligence claims. This time period is called a Statute of Limitations and once this time period passes you may forever lose your right to file a claim. If you need information about pharmacy laws in your area see the chart below for SOL information that apply to personal injury and malpractice claims in your state.

If you have been harmed because a pharmacist has neglected their duty of care, you may be entitled to compensation. A pharmacy attorney who specializes in pharmacy error law can help you start your claim.
