Toronto Pharmaceutical Error Lawyer
If you or someone you love was given an incorrect drug or dosage as the result of a pharmaceutical error, you might be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries. Pharmaceutical negligence can cause severe harm that may result in hospitalization or even death. Any health complications might mean missed time at work or an inability to work at all, which in turn means less income for you and your family.
Pharmacists owe the person receiving their prescriptions a duty of care to work competently and to fill the order with the correct drug and dosage. This duty also requires the pharmacist to discuss the medication’s purpose with the patient, how it is to be used, and to warn of any dangerous interaction it will have with other drugs. The patient should also be made aware of any possible side effects to monitor while using the prescribed medication. If the pharmacist fails in effectively carrying out any of these duties, then they have breached the duty of care.
A breach of a duty of care could rise to the level of negligence if the pharmaceutical error caused a great deal of harm. This negligence can impose liability on the pharmacist and pharmacy for their mistakes. Pharmacies have pharmacist liability coverage, which can provide compensation to you for your injury, lost income or wages, or medical expenses if caused by the negligence of the pharmacy or its employees.

After having suffered the consequences of a negligent pharmacist, physically recovering should be your primary objective.
