When physicians prescribe the wrong medication, an incorrect dose or the wrong dosing instructions, patients’ lives are at risk.

Pharmacy Malpractice Representation
Though it is your doctor’s responsibility to be prescribing the appropriate medication in the proper dosages, the pharmacist who fills your prescription is also responsible for ensuring your safety. Pharmacists are extensively trained in all types of drugs and to provide patients with information regarding how the drug may interact with other drugs the patient may be taking. Pharmacists are also responsible for contacting your doctor before filling a prescription if they have any questions or concerns, or are unable to read the written prescription.
It is essential that you verify that the correct medication and dose has been given to you. However, if you or a loved one has been harmed by a pharmacist’s negligence, we can help.
