READ THE LABEL 150 150 Lauren Ellerman

We frequently get calls from people who have experienced medication errors due to pharmacy mistakes.

People may be given their right medication – but wrong dose information.


Maybe they received their correct label, but with the wrong medication inside.


Maybe they were given someone else’s pills and label!

The moral of the story is, pharmacists do make mistakes. They get rushed and don’t pay attention to every pill and prescription.

This means that you need to read the label each and every time you pick something up. If however, you have suffered an (1) allergic reaction; (2) took a medication that caused you harm; (3) wrong dose, our firm handles pharmacy medication error cases and we would be happy to speak to you about your potential claim.

Again, it would be better for all of us if mistakes didn’t happen, but medication erros can be devastating.
