Pharmacy & Prescription Errors in St. Louis

Pharmacy Malpractice Attorney in Missouri

The instances of prescription drug error in pharmacies have increased dramatically in recent years, and will likely only continue to do so as aging baby boomers and others come to rely more on prescription medication. Of the nearly four billion prescriptions that are filled in pharmacies every year, millions of errors occur that cause harm, in some cases, even wrongful death.

Some of the more common pharmacy errors include:

  • Dispensing incorrect medication
  • Dispensing an incorrect dosage
  • Miscommunication between pharmacists and physicians
  • Failure to prevent or protect against harmful drug interactions
  • Failure to identify drug allergies in a patient

These errors can occur for a variety of reasons, such as understaffing in the pharmacy, the emphasis of speed over customer safety, tying employee pay to volume, distractions, and doctor malpractice. If you have suffered injury or illness due to pharmacy error then you may be entitled to financial compensation from that pharmacy for the pain and trauma you have endured. By providing you with qualified legal representation in your case, a St. Louis personal injury lawyer may give you your best chance at obtaining that compensation.
