Pharmacy Prescription Errors
Medication errors are not necessarily the doctor’s fault. Sometimes valid prescriptions are botched by pharmacy personnel when the order is filled. Sometimes pharmacists fail in their duty to cross-check prescriptions before dispensing them to the patient.
Did you or a family member suffer injury because of carelessness at a pharmacy? The Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP will aggressively pursue a lawsuit for monetary damages against the pharmacist, the hospital or the retail pharmacy.

Pharmacists are ultimately responsible for the drugs they dispense. They are trained to know the uses, formulas, doses and side effects. They also have tools and systems for identifying contraindications and a duty to verify “scrips” with the prescribing physician if there is any question.
Yet pharmacy errors happen every day, with disastrous results. Our legal team can hold hospital pharmacies and pharmacy chains accountable for severe or permanent injury from:
- Allergic reaction (known drug allergies)
- Incompatible health conditions (“do not take if …”)
- Adverse interactions with other current medications
- Dispensing the wrong drug or wrong dosage
- Labeling errors
- Incomplete or incorrect instructions to patients
- Mix-ups with another patient’s order
