Most people at some point in their lives take a prescribed medication. Millions of times every year, doctors prescribe pills that treat pain, high cholesterol, thyroid problems, high blood pressure, acid reflux, infections and many other medical conditions. We trust pharmacies to dispense the proper medications and the exact dosages. Unfortunately, more than a million times a year patients throughout the United States receive wrong prescriptions or mistakenly dosed drugs.
According to the FDA, over 1.3 million people are injured each year due to medication mistakes. Taking the wrong medication or an incorrect dosage can cause serious medical problems including long-term disability, pain and suffering, and death. Few people realize there is a real risk of picking up your medication from your local pharmacy and suffering severe consequences because of a pharmacy error or prescription error.
If you or a loved one has suffered from a wrong prescription, you may be entitled to damages for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and wrongful death. Call the Frank S. Buck Law Firm if you have been the victim of a wrong prescription.
