Pharmacy Error Lawsuits

Prescription Drug Error Lawyer Marietta Ga

If you receive medical care resulting in administration of any type of drug, you entrust your health to a doctor, a pharmacist and any other medical provider who was involved. The physician had an obligation to prescribe appropriate medication at the right dosage. He or she should have verified whether you had any drug allergies and otherwise determined that the drug prescribed was right for you. You may be eligible for compensation for a doctor’s medical malpractice if he or she failed to adhere to widely accepted professional standards when issuing a prescription and you were seriously harmed as a result.

The pharmacist, likewise, has a responsibility to fill the prescription correctly, give clear instructions on how to take the drug and warn you of potential side effects. If a nurse, medical technician or anesthesiologist was involved in delivery of the medication, that person also shares responsibility to adhere to professional standards designed to protect your well-being.

Jackel & Phillips represents people who have suffered harm or lost loved ones because of any type of medication or pharmacy negligence, including the following:

  • Prescription writing error;
  • Prescription fulfillment error;
  • Medication delivery error;
  • Incorrect dosage management to adjust to a patient’s changed condition;
  • Prescribing medications that conflict with other prescribed medications and cause adverse reactions in patients;
  • Distributing the wrong medication, dosage, or pill count, or dispensing a prescription to the wrong patient;
  • Prescribing medications that conflict with a patient’s pre-existing illnesses or allergies and cause adverse reactions in patients; and,
  • Inaccurate or incomplete medical advice when distributing medication to a drugstore customer.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I RECEIVE AN INCORRECT MEDICATION?

In any situation where you or a loved-one has received an incorrect drug or an incorrect amount of a drug which places health in danger, there are some basic things which you should keep in mind:

  • Do not delay;
  • Contact poison control or 911 and seek medical attention immediately;
  • Make sure to have an itemization of all medications which you are currently taking as well as the medication which was given to you in error;
  • Do not throw away any of the prescriptions, medications, bottling or labels that were given to you; and,
  • Seek the advice of an experienced Georgia injury attorney when you are able to do so.

Our family's experience with this firm has been phenomenal. From the very first meeting until our case was settled, we felt like we were in good hands. Both Chris Phillips and Dana Jackel were thorough in building our case and displayed great professionalism and negotiating skills. We felt they acted in our best interests and were able to successfully guide us through this process. We highly recommend them!

From the first time I spoke with Dana and Chris (which was back in 2011) all the way up to our settlement today, they have been tenacious and considerate, even when I was admittedly not the ideal client. I hired Jackel and Phillips to represent my 5 year old son who was seriously injured in a horrible accident. These attorneys were very persistent and organized! They refused to accept the "run around" from ANYONE, especially the insurance company! I trust them 0. They informed me about EVERYTHING, even if I did not ask. Both Dana and Chris were very easy to contact. On the rare occasion that I had to leave a message, they would return my call the same day. As far as the case goes, I am more than pleased. They got my son WAY more than I ever thought possible and structured the settlement for maximum returns in the future. They handled everything with genuine care and concern. The whole team at Jackel and Phillips is absolutely THE BEST there is!!!...

Excellent Representation and Service!

was very seriously injured in a car wreck resulting in multiple medical procedures. I hired JACKEL & PHILLIPS after researching the firm and meeting their "team" to discuss my case. Both Dana and Chris are excellent attorneys who really know the law and how to manage a lawsuit. They aggressively pursued my case, kept me informed along the way and obtained a fantastic settlement, despite the insurance company fighting who was responsible for the wreck! I would highly recommend these attorneys for your personal injury case!
