Lawyers Representing Victims of Prescription Error & Pharmaceutical Negligence
Thousands of prescriptions are filled every day in Ontario. Unfortunately, due to human error or negligence, a very small number of these are incorrect. Taking the wrong medication by accident can result in serious injury or, in the most tragic cases, death.
The pharmaceutical industry does not always have appropriate checks in place to prevent prescription errors from happening, and sometimes mistakes happen. If you or a member of your family has suffered serious injury due to a prescription error, you may be able to bring a legal claim to recover compensation.
What is Pharmaceutical Negligence?
Pharmaceutical negligence claims, also called prescription error or medication error, arise where someone is injured after taking prescription medication. There are four major causes:
- Drugs are defective due to manufacturing or other error
- Improperly prescribed medication due to physician error
- Improperly filled medication due to pharmacist error
- Lack of warning about long-term side effects by either a prescribing physician or dispensing pharmacy
