Sometimes, injuries resulting from medications may be the result of manufacture error. Drug manufacturers may fail to place the proper warnings on their medications or may fail to disclose certain dangerous side effects associated with a particular drug.
A pharmaceutical injury may also arise as a result of pharmacy error, if a pharmacist provides you with the wrong dose or the wrong medication. Additionally, negligent administration of a drug can be the cause of a pharmaceutical error that results in injury. The negligent drug administration may occur either in the hospital or the doctor’s office.
Dangerous drugs or the improper administration of medication can lead to serious negative consequences including significant injury, devastating health problems, and even death. Some injuries that may result from pharmaceutical error by a manufacturer, pharmacist, or doctor include:
- Heart attack
- Blood clots
- Gallbladder disease
Most times, injuries stemming from the negligent administration or distribution of drugs can be avoided. If you or a loved one has been affected by a pharmaceutical error, you need a law firm that can handle these cases.
