Taking Action After A Prescription Error Or Pharmaceutical Mistake
Prescription drugs are not sold over the counter for many reasons. They are very potent drugs meant for certain people with very specific medical conditions. The wrong dose or the wrong type of drug may cause serious medical complications amounting to poisoning and resulting in injuries such as:
- Brain damage
- Heart attack or stroke
- Organ damage
- Cancer recurrence
- Wrongful death
Medications are filled improperly more often than you would ever expect, and it pays to give close attention to ensure that the pharmacy properly fulfills your doctor’s intentions.
Medication errors can occur at any pharmacy in Georgia. At Cromartie Law, we are prepared to provide your case in-depth evaluation and are capable of pursuing compensation for your injury whether an error occurred at a neighborhood pharmacy, a clinic or hospital, a nursing home, or a chain store pharmacy such as Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, Rite Aid, Kroger or Eckerd.
Consult with our Rome personal injury law firm right away if you or a loved one has become ill or has been seriously injured because of a pharmacy’s mistake. We may be able to help you obtain financial compensation to pay for medical expenses and more.
Investigation Is Key In A Pharmacy Malpractice Case
We independently investigate all cases we take on, and we work in close collaboration with forensic specialists and drug experts when necessary. Our firm is small, but we keep it that way to provide each of our clients with personalized guidance and service straight from their attorney, H.L. Rick Cromartie III.
Mr. Cromartie has been practicing law for more than 25 years, and he has 15 years of experience as a former insurance defense lawyer. He knows how to counter the cases of opposing parties with well-prepared evidence and rebuttals to challenge and suppress their tactics.
We represent clients injured under a range of circumstances and situations involving:
- Heart disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Mental health conditions
- Many other conditions and injuries
Poor workplace policies, overworked pharmacists and even the poor handwriting of doctors can lead to errors. Many chain store pharmacies require pharmacists and their assistants to work long shifts, sometimes up to 12 hours.
