Did a drug error cause a death in your family? We can help

When used and prescribed correctly, prescription medication can be a valuable asset for treating a wide variety of illnesses and diseases. Unfortunately, no matter how effective or safe a drug might be in the correct situation, there is one aspect of prescription drugs that simply cannot be erased -- human error. Administering the incorrect medication or the wrong dosage to a patient can cause serious injuries and even lead to death.

Most people in New Jersey place an enormous amount of trust in their pharmacists. After all, a great deal of school and training is required to become a licenses pharmacist. There is usually little doubt in a patient's mind that the contents of their prescription medicine bottle is accurately reflected by the label on the outside. In addition to the label, most warnings or possible side effects are usually listed on the bottle or verbally communicated by the pharmacist.

However, a simple failure in oversight or refusal to actually follow up with pharmacy technicians when necessary can create a dangerous situation for patients. Various medications have the potential to interact with other drugs, while others can be dangerous for patients with certain conditions. Even if the correct medication was filled, giving the incorrect dosage can mean too little or too much for a patient, both of which can spell disaster.

Patients in New Jersey should be able to build strong relationships founded on trust with their pharmacists, but negligence and inattention can cause that foundation to crumble. We understand how devastating it can be when a loved one's death was caused by a medication error, and our firm remains committed to guiding grieving families through the process of seeking justice in order to achieve the best outcome possible for their situation.
