Who Is Liable for Providing the Incorrect Amount of a Prescription in Texas?

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

Whether you require daily medications to manage pain or you are prescribed a certain drug to help you recover from an illness or injury, having the correct amount of your prescription is an imperative part of ensuring you stay safe. Unfortunately, medical professionals who prescribe and handle these prescriptions can make mistakes. If you have been injured due to a prescription that was prescribed in the incorrect amount, you can pursue justice by filing a prescription error claim. When filing your prescription error claim, one of the most important steps is to prove the liability of the party who is at fault for the harm you have suffered.

Understanding Who is Liable After Prescribing the Incorrect Amount of a Prescription

When you have suffered harm due to the negligent actions of a healthcare provider who should have taken the care to ensure your safety, it is understandable that you may be feeling overwhelmed and unsure of where to go for help with your case. While your main priority should be to recover from the injuries you have suffered due to the prescription error, you should still begin the process of pursuing justice for your losses with the help of a Texas lawyer.

One of the first steps in any prescription error case should be to identify who the liable party is. While each case is different, some of the most common liable parties in prescription error cases are as follows:

  • Doctors who wrote out the prescription
  • Nurses
  • Other hospital staff
  • The pharmacist who filled the prescription

To ensure that the correct party is identified in your prescription error case, your trusted lawyer will launch a full investigation into what occurred in your unique case. 

Proving Liability in a Prescription Error Case in Texas

When proving liability in a case where you were provided the wrong amount of a prescription, your lawyer must be able to prove the presence of the four factors of negligence in your case. 

The four factors of negligence include:

  • The liable party owed you a duty of care
  • That duty of care was breached
  • The breach of duty led to the incorrect prescription or amount of drugs being prescribed to you and your subsequent injuries
  • You suffered losses as a result of their actions
