Dangerous Pharmaceutical Errors
We have little choice but to trust that the pharmaceutical products we use and rely on are safe to consume. However, sometimes pharmaceutical errors result in deadly and dangerous side effects. Errors might include poor mixing, using incorrect ingredients, or general negligence. Any of these errors, the attorneys of Wilson & McQueen, PLLC know, have the potential to result in terrible side effects among consumers. These side effects can also end up financially burdening a victim with expensive medical costs. In light of this, it is important for Lexington victims to know that they may have recourse to legal action.
Common and Dangerous Pharmaceutical Errors
Each of these errors performed by pharmaceutical personnel may cause damaging and even life-threatening effects in the consumer:
- Incorrect Labeling
- Incorrect Dosage
- Incorrect Prescription
Any of these actions can, of course, be dangerous for the person who ingests the medicine. Depending on the severity of the impact, significant medical attention may be necessary, and that will likely incur a lot of costs. However, the pharmacist or company that is responsible for the error may be held responsible for the damages.
