Common Causes of Pharmaceutical Injuries
Prescription drugs are highly regulated due to the risks of misuse and abuse when not taken as prescribed. However, pharmacies or individuals may act negligently when dealing with these potentially harmful medications.
Whether due to carelessness or to boost their own profits, this negligence can cause serious injury or death to an unsuspecting patient who put their trust in a pharmacist who breached their standard of care.
Generally, pharmaceutical malpractice cases include:
- Incorrectly prescribed medications, such as when a pharmacist accidentally delivers the wrong medicine or dosage, a medical professional misdiagnosis a condition and prescribes an unnecessary medication to treat that misdiagnosis, or a medication is prescribed for an off-label use.
- Incorrectly filled prescriptions due to pharmacist negligence. His can include dispensing an incorrect drug, dispensing the wrong dose, or not providing instruction to the patient on how to correctly administer the medication.
- Prescribing dangerous or defective drugs that have serious side effects, have not been properly tested, do not come with sufficient warnings, or have been improperly marketed. This category of drugs includes those that have been recalled or are currently under investigation.
