Pharmacist Malpractice

According to the Journal of the American Pharmaceutical Association, pharmacy errors are a huge problem on a national level. In fact, there are average rate of four errors per day in a pharmacy filling 250 prescriptions daily. This can result in serious health consequences and even wrongful death for many individuals.

Pharmacists have a strict duty of care to administer medications to patients in a proper manner. Pharmacists may be sued for medical malpractice if they cause an injury or wrongful death by falling below this level of care.

A pharmacist medical malpractice lawsuit may include the following elements:

  • The pharmacists had a duty of care
  • The pharmacist breached that duty of care
  • The breach of that duty caused harm and damages

If you have a personal injury or wrongful death claim for pharmacist malpractice, you may be able to sue the pharmacist, a pharmacy, hospital, clinic, or doctor that wrote the prescription. The trusted medical malpractice attorneys at Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP can walk you through your entire case to get you the financial compensation you deserve.

What is Pharmacy Malpractice?

Pharmacists have specialized training to fill prescriptions. In addition, they also need to be wary of possible drug interactions and why the drug was prescribed to the patient.
There are different ways that a pharmacist may be liable for malpractice:

  • Patient was given a medication that was compounded incorrectly
  • Patient may have been given the right drug but wrong directions
  • Dispensing the wrong dose of the drug
  • Administering the wrong drug entirely
  • Overlooking potential drug interactions
  • Improper dosage or duration issues

Failing to counsel the patient on side effects and drug interactions

Client Testimonials
  • "I first met Nick Moraitakis under the worst possible circumstances. The sudden, tragic death of my husband left me alone with a young child. Needless to say, I was in shock and emotionally paralyzed, with nothing more than unanswered questions. At a loss and nowhere to turn, a family friend recommended I contact Nick. Little did I know the impact he would have on my life. From the moment we met, I knew he was someone I could trust. At a time when I was vulnerable and scared, trust was something that was hard to come by. He immediately went to work on my case, which was a great feeling because it gave me hope. He has walked me through the entire process, answered even the most trivial of questions, and perhaps most importantly, listened to me. He has always made himself available when I have needed him and I honestly feel that my case is important and a top priority. Words cannot begin to express how invaluable Nick has been through the most difficult time in my life. Nick has gone above and beyond the call of duty for me, and for that, I am forever grateful. I have been completely devastated by my husband’s death, but now that our financial future is more secure, I can focus on what is most important: raising my daughter the way my husband and I always wanted."  -Catherine G., Atlanta, GA

  • "We were very blessed to have Glenn representing us at a very difficult time in our lives. Due to medical negligence, our son was left brain damaged and severely incapacitated. Glenn was always available to us when we needed him and he took our concerns and needs seriously. We were treated as friends not just as clients and if Glenn didn’t have an answer for us when we asked, he would tell us “I don’t have an answer for you right now, but I will find out and get back to you” and he always did. Thanks to Glenn and his assistant Konnie, we were represented with legal counsel that exceeded our expectations."  -Allen and Catherine D., Atlanta, GA

  • "The best decision you can make. If you are reading this testimonial and wondering about Nick Moraitakis: Is he a good attorney? Can he help me? Does he understand what I am going through? Will he give me the attention and time I seek? Does he know his way through the Law, in the Courts and with the Judges? Will he understand how important this case is to me? Is he honest? Does he have great integrity? … Does his staff reflect his values and professionalism? My answer YES and YES!!!! Nick Moraitakis represented me in a challenging case and at a difficult time in my life. Having him as my attorney was the best thing that could happen to me- He had my best interest in mind, he worked with me as if I was his only client and was with me all the way through!"  -Simona E., Atlanta, GA

  • "I nearly died on an operating room table and had many complications. I was referred by another law firm to Glenn Kushel. I do not regret my decision to have them represent me in this matter. They were great! They came to me, as I was unable to travel. They listened and really cared about you as a person. They always returned my calls the same day. Their legal assistant Konnie Tate is the best. Glenn and his staff got me all the compensation I was entitled to. They worked hard to make sure I could get back on my feet and take care of my children. Thank you Glenn, Konnie & staff for all your hard work."  -Rhonda H., Atlanta, GA
