Is the Pharmacy Always Liable for an Incorrect Amount of a Prescription?

Legally reviewed by David W.Hodges and Don J. Foty

If you have been given an incorrect amount of medication, you may wonder who is ultimately responsible for the impact this has had on your life. Understanding a pharmacy’s legal and ethical obligations is essential for healthcare professionals and patients alike. But just how can you tell when a pharmacy or someone else is responsible for a medication error?

Typically, practitioners who have prescribed the drug or the pharmacy itself will be responsible for medication errors. Drawing on our knowledge and experience at Hodges & Foty, LLP, we aim to explore the nuanced legal landscape surrounding prescription errors. We can help you further understand the complexities of medication errors and how the law handles them. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information by calling us at (713) 523-0001 or filling out our contact form.

Are Pharmacies Always Responsible for Incorrect Prescription Amounts?

Pharmacies and their employees are generally responsible for any errors that they cause when they provide you a medication.  It is possible for a pharmacist to misread a medication’s name, dosage, and many other mistakes. 

What Compensation Can You Obtain for a Medication Error?

You may be entitled to compensation if you face complications relating to a medication error, including an incorrect dosage for a prescribed drug. Depending on your case, you may be able to receive financial recovery for the following damages:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages, including benefits
  • Loss of wage-earning potential
  • Wrongful death
  • Loss of companionship or consortium
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Decline in quality of life
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Emotional distress

We understand that you have put your trust in your medical care providers, and they have broken the duty of care they owe to you as a patient. You deserve to receive compensation for the full extent of your losses, and we can help you obtain that recovery.
