Bakersfield Pharmacy Errors Attorney
Errors or Mistakes by Bakersfield Pharmacies and Pharmacists
With the number of Americans taking prescription medicines, it is no wonder that pharmacies throughout the U.S. are busy filing prescriptions every single day. A busy Bakersfield pharmacy may fill more than 1,000 prescriptions in a single day. When you consider that a pharmacist working a 12-hour shift may oversee or fill many of these, it is easy to see how pharmacy errors may occur. Even a 1% margin of error would mean that 10 prescriptions would be improperly filled. If this happened to you, and you were injured as a result, you may have grounds for a civil suit against the responsible pharmacy or pharmacist. A Bakersfield pharmacy errors attorney at our law firm may be able to help you take the legal action that is your right.
Pharmacy errors may lead to serious medical problems and may even cause the
wrongful death of a patient. The right to file a civil lawsuit gives an injured patient the opportunity to seek and recover financial damages for medical care and other expenses that will help him or her rebuild and recover.

Avoiding Pharmacy Errors
There are a few simple steps you can take to help avoid becoming the victim of a pharmacy error. If it is a refill, look at the new medicine and compare it to the old. Is it the same? Don't hesitate to ask the pharmacist or your doctor questions about the medicine you are given. If you think you may have been given the wrong medication, call your doctor. If you experience any unusual side effects, seek medical treatment immediately and talk to your doctor. This can help you avoid further injury.
