Prescription medications can be wonderful. They can prevent, treat and, at times, cure medical conditions. Whether your prescription helps keep your blood pressure in a healthy range, your diabetes in check or your anxiety manageable, you have a reasonable expectation that it will help you, not harm you.
When a patient is injured by a prescription drug, due to either doctor or pharmacy error, he or she can talk to an attorney about pursuing compensation. While financial compensation cannot reverse what happened, a successful medical malpractice claim can help with medical bills, lost wages and other damages. Cranwell & Moore P.L.C., serving Roanoke, Virginia, offers no-cost, no-obligation consultations. Call us at 540-904-1621 or toll free at 888-635-6304 to learn how we can help you.
There Is No Room For Error On A Prescription Bottle
When you look at a prescription bottle, you see:
- Your name
- The drug’s name or its generic name
- The prescription (Rx) number
- The measurements of each pill or tablet
- The dosing instructions
Each item is vitally important to your health and safety. If any of these are incorrect, you could obtain:
- A prescription intended for someone else
- The wrong medication
- Too much or not enough of the correct medication
