Parties That May Be Liable in Your Texas Prescription Error Case

When you have put your trust into healthcare professionals to give you the medication that will help you recover from whatever is ailing you, it can be both upsetting and disappointing when it is discovered that there was an error with your prescription and you are now suffering as a result. After suffering harm from a prescription error, you have the legal right to pursue justice by filing a personal injury claim. 

In order to support your claim, your lawyer will need to identify the party who is responsible for the injuries and losses you have suffered. After a prescription error, the parties who may be held liable include the following:

  • Doctor
  • Nurse
  • Pharmacist
  • Other medical personnel

Once the liable party has been identified, your lawyer’s next step will be to actually prove their liability. To prove liability, your lawyer must provide evidence of the four factors of negligence. The factors of negligence are as follows:

  • The liable party owed you a duty of care
  • The duty of care was breached
  • The breach of duty led to the prescription error and your subsequent harm
  • You suffered losses as a result

Your prescription error lawyer will launch a full investigation into your case to help prove liability and hold the correct party responsible for the harm you have suffered. 

Can You Recover Damages After a Prescription Error in Texas?

  • Medical expenses in the past and future
