We represent victims of pharmacy errors

A previous post on this blog discussed the different types of mistakes a pharmacist might make when dispensing medication. Although the pharmacist's job is to follow the doctor's orders and know enough about medications to help a patient, their role in the world of medicine is critical, as their mistake could mean a patient does not get the right medication and suffers a medical setback as a result.

Like doctors and nurses, pharmacists have an obligation to be careful. If they do not exercise appropriate care and as a result make a significant mistake when filling a prescription, they can be held accountable in a medical malpractice case just like a doctor or a nurse.

As part of our law office's broad personal injury practice, we represent patients who have been hurt because of the error or oversight of either a pharmacist or a staff member whom the pharmacist is supposed to be supervising. We don't accept excuses that mistakes happen or that a pharmacist was just following orders; if there is negligence on the part of the pharmacist, we will pursue compensation for our clients aggressively.

Our office served both Camden County, New Jersey, and the greater Philadelphia area for over 50 years. In that time, we have developed a reputation for being tough litigators who will defend a victim's rights even if the party on the side, or their insurance company, is very reluctant to pay the compensation that is legitimately owed.

In this respect, even if it seems like a difficult thing to prove negligence on the part of the pharmacist, a person need not give up on pursuing compensation, as we have had success in cases that were thought of as hard or even not worth it to other law firms.
