Can I File a Lawsuit Against a Pharmacist?
Do you believe that you were injured or lost a loved one due to a pharmacy error? Mistakes such as a misread or misfilled prescription, misprinted dosing instruction, or failure on the part of a pharmacist to explain all relevant contraindications and potential adverse reactions can have serious consequences.
Steps You Should Take After a Suspected Pharmacy Error
There are two things you can do immediately if you believe a pharmacy error caused illness or injury:
First, save all remaining drugs, prescriptions, receipts and any other documentation you may have that can help prove the existence of pharmacy error and establish the timeline.
Second, discuss your case with an attorney experienced with pharmacy error cases.

Pharmacist Liability in Prescription Drug Addiction
One situation in which pharmacy error can cause serious injury or death occurs in relation to patients who become addicted to prescription medications. Pharmacists have a responsibility to monitor the frequency at which they are dispensing addictive drugs to a particular patient. If they fail to do so, they may be held liable for damages done to that patient in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
