Indiana Prescription Mistake Lawyers Lawyers - Hensley Legal Group, PC

Indiana Personal Injury Lawyers

on Your Side

John Hensley and his team of Indiana personal injury lawyers represent victims of prescription mistakes across the state of Indiana. If you’ve suffered an injury or illness due to a prescription mistake, Hensley Legal Group can help.

It may be difficult to determine who should be held responsible for your injury or illness. Your doctor may have diagnosed you correctly and prescribed the correct medication, but the pharmacist may have filled your prescription incorrectly. On the other hand, your pharmacist may be an innocent bystander filling a prescription that the doctor incorrectly ordered.

People can be careless no matter what their job is. It’s important to remember that pharmacists are people too, and that specific conditions may contribute to their carelessness, including:

  • Understaffed pharmacies
  • Twelve-hour shifts

Understaffed pharmacies and twelve-hour shifts may lead to:

  • No bathroom breaks
  • No meal breaks
  • Fatigue

Pharmacists are people, and when pharmacies force their employees to work dangerously long hours and stay busy to the point that they cannot find time for breaks, accidents are more likely to occur. In these situations, the pharmacy or hospital may be held responsible for your injury or illness.

“But Doesn’t Everyone Make Mistakes?”

We trust doctors to properly diagnose us. We trust pharmacists to give us the correct medication prescribed by the doctor. Prescription mistakes break that trust.

Yes, everyone makes mistakes. But those in the medical field are held to a higher standard. When medical professionals make mistakes, lives are on the line.

Procedures and processes exist to minimize the likelihood of these mistakes. If medical professionals ignore these safety precautions, you could be entitled to compensation. Hensley Legal Group is here to help.

Common Prescription Mistakes

prescription mistakes

It’s estimated that between one and five percent of prescriptions filled in U.S. pharmacies involve some kind of error. The four most common types of prescription mistakes include:

  • Wrong drug quantity (40 percent)
  • Wrong duration of drug treatment (21 percent)
  • Wrong dosing directions (19 percent)
  • Wrong dosage formula (11 percent)

Many medications are spelled similarly or sound similar. When arranged alphabetically, it can be easy for pharmacists to grab the wrong drug. One common prescription mix-up is between a drug for kids with ADHD and a drug for heroin addicts. The ADHD drug is methylphenidate, and the drug for heroin is methadone.

Another common prescription mistake is failing to account for the interaction between multiple drugs in a patient’s body. Many Americans are on more than one medication, and it’s important that interactions between multiple drugs don’t cause dangerous side effects that harm the patient.

As an accident victim and single father in dire need of help and at the end of my rope, somehow a gentleman named Jonathan contacted me today about my accident, and within few minutes of our conversation he had calmed me down from a 10 to a 5 and took a load of stress, anger, fear, anxiety, depression and being lost off me 50% and helped me see light at end of a dark tunnel. Thank you Jonathan.

I have to say that I am very pleased with how Hensley handled my case. They were really quick about getting on my case and getting me a settlement. They didn't delay at all. My car accident lawyer, Phil, was amazing. He got me everything I deserved. I've already recommended Hensley to a friend who needed a good car accident attorney. I recommend that you call them, ESPECIALLY if the insurance is giving you a hard time like they tried to do to me.
