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.
