Pharmacy Errors

A prescription filled with the wrong medication carries the potential for severe adverse reactions, hospitalization, and even permanent injury or sensitivities.  The loss of the “corner druggist” and the rise of the chain pharmacies dispensing hundreds of prescriptions each day to customers they no longer recognize, has increased the risk of the wrong drug being dispensed.  Although pharmacies may do their best to carefully review computerized records, they are responsible for their errors and the injuries that result.

Representative examples of our work include:

Image result for blue arrow Our client was using home exercise equipment when a cable snapped, striking his face and causing permanent eye injury. His occupation requires extensive reading. We worked with a forensic engineering expert from a local university who determined that the design of the equipment was defective. As a result of our litigation team's investigation and advocacy, this federal court case settled for seven times the original offer made during negotiation.  

When products are defective in manufacture, design, or because of inadequate warnings, manufacturers and sellers can be liable for resulting injuries to conscientious users.

 

Image result for blue arrow Our client slipped down icy interior stairs in an office building. She suffered serious injuries to both of her hips, requiring several surgeries. Although the building's management knew the stairs were dangerous due to the ice, they did not act to make the stairs safe. As a result of our litigation team's investigation and advocacy, the case settled for three times the original offer made by the building management's insurance company.

 Building owners and managers have a duty to keep premises safe. When they are made aware of a dangerous condition and do not fix it quickly, they can be liable for resulting injuries.
