Fast Facts: Prescriptions and Medications
Prescription errors and Medication mistakes are a big problem and a leading cause of avoidable patient death.
Save all the bottles and containers; even the bottles and containers that are not the drug that was wrongly prescribed.
Expect the lawyer for the hospital, doctor or pharmacy to claim that the injury was due to interactions between medications, and that you did not tell your doctor or pharmacist about other medications that you were taking.
Do not throw away any of the remaining pills!
Expect an argument from the opposition that you overdosed. Having the proper amount of remaining pills will be important evidence to counteract this argument.
Keeping the prescriptions provides proof and evidence about who prescribed what and why.
Especially if you have prescriptions filled at more than one pharmacy, try to get a printout from every pharmacy about your prescription history!
These records will establish that you are not a hypochondriac, addict or pill seeker, and that you are compliant patient who follows doctor’s orders.
Do not post anything about your personal injury and wrong medication given lawsuit on the Internet. No Facebook, no MySpace.
Some of these negligent prescribed drug lawsuits and medication error lawsuits can have short time limits, so seek legal advice early to become educated about your legal rights.
Do not become your own expert in drug prescriptions or drug interactions.
Yes, it is true that the Internet has a lot of good information about drugs, side effects and lawsuits, warnings and FDA recalls and warnings, but unless you are a pharmacist, toxicologist, or experienced drug litigation and prescription error attorney, it is a good idea to seek legal advice before attempting to settle a claim on your own.
Remember, most settlements are final and the insurance company is not going to be your friend no matter how cozy they make you feel.
