Your Texas Pharmacist Made an Error That Injured You – Can You Sue?

Personal Injury | Pharmaceutical Liability

When we are given a prescription for any sort of health issue, we put our trust in the doctors and pharmacists behind the counter to give us the right dose, medicine, and instructions to make us feel better or keep an illness at bay.

This attitude makes sense. After all, doctors and pharmacists spend years in school and take on the responsibility to keep us healthy and safe.

What happens when they make a mistake, though? If they cause further injuries, can you file a lawsuit to cover the cost of what they did to you?

The short answer is yes. The longer answer requires some information about a pharmacist’s duty and how negligence can directly cause injury.

What You Can Do to Resolve a Business Dispute in Texas

Arbitration | Business Disputes

If you have a business dispute, you don’t always need to resort to a lawsuit to solve business conflicts. There are other options.

In fact, even if you are in the middle of a business legal battle, that doesn’t necessarily mean trial is inevitable. Only five percent of all legal cases go to trial. The rest are settled out of court.

How? Alternative dispute resolution, or ADR, can help you come up with a solution. ADR involves arbitration, mediation, and negotiation as means to resolving conflict.

Below, we’re going to take a deeper look at each.

Negotiation

This is a direct means of conflict solution in which you talk with the other party. You may want to have an attorney [...]
