Pharmaceutical Errors, Injuries and Your Legal Rights

Despite technological and procedural advances in the dispensing of medications in the pharmaceutical industry, preventable prescription drug errors continue to occur. A recent incident in Chatham is a case in point. Children in approximately 50 families were given a breast cancer treatment medication instead of simple fluoride supplements. How long did this improper dispensing occur unnoticed within the pharmacy? Almost three months. To read about this occurrence, click here.

At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, we believe that pharmacists and others in the healthcare industry should be held accountable when medical malpractice and pharmacy malpractice occurs. And, for more than four decades, we have been doing just that: assisting injured clients when medical and medication errors lead to injuries and fatalities.

Were you or a loved one hurt when a pharmacist incorrectly filled a prescription? Do you have reason to believe that an illegible prescription lead to a medication error? Do you have questions regarding a medication that was possibly manufactured incorrectly?

We are familiar with the standards of care pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are required to follow, and we are skilled at investigating malpractice cases and in litigating and negotiating for clients’ compensation. Our verdict and settlement record includes results of $3.5 million, $2.94 million, $2.5 million, $2.25 million, $1.8 million, $1.36 million, and $1 million, as well as numerous other six- and seven-figure results. To discuss your New Jersey pharmacy error questions with experienced personal injury attorney, contact our firm.
