Greater Boston Pharmacy Malpractice - Prescription Errors
Contact a Massachusetts personal injury attorney at Kenney & Conley in Braintree if you or anyone in your family has been injured through the negligent prescription of medications, the failure of a pharmacy to fill a prescription correctly, or accidents involving a nurse's improper administration of a drug. Our experience with the investigation and proof of pharmacy and medication errors, together with our familiarity with the state and federal laws relating to consumer protection, can represent a significant advantage to our clients in recovering full compensation for their injuries.
Medications prescribed by physicians and distributed by licensed pharmacists are by their nature hazardous--otherwise, they would be freely available over the counter. On occasion, a physician will prescribe a drug in the wrong dosage or without due regard for interactions or allergies, which would be an example of medical malpractice with potentially disastrous results for the patient. A pharmacy can incur liability by filling a prescription incorrectly, either with the wrong medication or in the wrong dose, as when an order for 25 milligram capsules is filled at 250 milligrams. Patients in hospitals or nursing homes can suffer severe consequences if a nurse fails to administer drugs at the correct times or according to the label instructions.
As in our other personal injury and malpractice cases, our investigation of your pharmaceutical injury claim involves a careful review of both liability and damages with a view toward maximizing your overall compensation. Our understanding of warranty and consumer protection law can help identify situations where the pharmacy itself assumes a responsibility for warning a patient of dangerous interactions or side effects. Our comprehensive analysis of both the facts and the applicable law helps us present your claim with full documentation as to our theory of a given defendant's liability and your complete damages.
