If you’ve been a victim of malpractice from a CVS Minute Clinic you may have questions. Should I hire a lawyer? Am I entitled to compensation? How long will the process take? We are here to answer all of your questions.

What are some examples of malpractice?

There are a number of ways malpractice can occur:

  • Wrong diagnosis – Missed diagnosis
  • Improper treatment
  • Given wrong medication
  • Wrong medication dosage
  • Delayed treatment
  • Infection

How much will it cost for your legal services?

If you hire us, our policy concerning legal fees is simple. You pay absolutely no legal fee unless we win or settle your case.

We believe no injured person should be denied justice because they can’t afford a lawyer. At Kane Law you can obtain legal services without any money upfront.

In fact, the only time we will seek payment for our services is when we obtain a monetary recovery for you. Our fees are based on a reasonable percentage of the amount we obtain for you.

Why Do I Need A Lawyer?

Most of our Minute Clinic claims are resolved within 30-90 days

Pharmacy error for prescription drug Bisoprolol

A complaint was recently filed against a national pharmacy chain for a prescription error regarding medication for hypertension.

The pharmacist for the national pharmacy chain admitted that they filled a prescription for a patient with Bisacodyl, a laxative, instead of the prescribed hypertension medication, Bisoprolol.

Errors involving medications for high blood pressure and hypertension are very serious and often fatal. These are very serious medical conditions that require a proper medication regimen.

Unfortunately prescription errors in pharmacies happen far to often. If you or a loved one have been the victim of a pharmacy related prescription or medication error we can help. For a free consultation please call us at 1-866-764-6060.

Diabetes medication Metformin often mixed up by pharmacies

The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) has documented numerous cases in which pharmacists have incorrectly given Metronidazole to customers suffering from diabetes, rather than Metformin, resulting in serious injuries. Metronidazole is an antibiotic that treats numerous infections. Metformin is used to treat type 2 diabetes. The similar sounding names are often a source of confusion for pharmacists, who are pressured to fill prescriptions at a fast pace, and have little time to interact with customers. Another source of the errors is illegible handwriting on prescriptions written by doctors.

In one documented case, a patient who spoke little English and had only recently been diagnosed with diabetes was prescribed Metformin 500 mg twice a day by his family physician. Upon showing his doctor the prescription bottle at a later visit, the doctor noticed that the label said: “Metronidazole” rather than Metformin.

A source of this medication error was that the computer screen reads “METF” for Metformin and “METR” for Metronidazole. The pharmacist typed “MET” in the computer and accidentally selected Metronidazole.

Mix ups such as this can be harmful, and even fatal. Diabetes is a serious medical condition. More than 100 million Americans are prediabetic or diabetic. For those suffering from diabetes, Metformin is essential to lower their blood sugar.

Wrong prescription hurts a woman’s ability to conceive

An Oregon plaintiff alleged that an incorrect prescription given to her by her pharmacist injured her ability to conceive. The woman’s physician prescribed her Clomiphene. Clomiphene is a medication used to help fertility. The pharmacist accidentally gave her Clomipramine, an anti-depressant.

After taking a dose of the incorrect medication, the woman was rushed to the emergency room by ambulance. The woman’s fertility treatments had to be halted while she recovered from the incident, thereby negatively impacting her ability to conceive.

The woman filed a lawsuit against the pharmacy for $680,000. The outcome of the suit is unknown. The injured customer alleged lost earnings, present and future medical bills, and pain and suffering.

Medication errors involving similar sounding medications, such as Clomiphene and Clomipramine, are common place. Coupled with poor handwritten prescriptions, it is not surprising that these types of mistakes occur.

Many pharmacists complain of the demand of having to fill more prescriptions every day, and long, intense shifts with few breaks. They often express concern over the volume of mistakes.

Have You Been Affected by a Pharmacy Mistake?

If you or a loved one has recently been harmed after being provided with the wrong medication, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for the injuries you have sustained. At Kane Law, we handle pharmacy error cases. To learn more about how we can help you pursue a claim for compensation, call 1-866-764-6060.

Massachusetts pharmacy malpractice law

In Massachusetts, a pharmacy and its employees, including pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, have a legally duty to properly fill prescriptions. Negligent failure to do so can result in a tort action, also known as a personal injury claim. The claim may be brought by the injured customer or the heirs of a deceased party.

While the Supreme Judicial Court has ruled that a pharmacy ordinarily has no legal obligation to warn customers of a prescription medication’s side effects, “when a pharmacy’s communication with a patient concerning a drug is limited to a single label warning of only one side effect, the pharmacy has undertaken a duty to warn correctly as to that specific effect, but not undertaken a broader duty to warn of all potential side effects.” However, when a pharmacy gives it customers more detailed lists of warnings- or promises in advertisements to give customers warning information regarding their prescriptions, it undertakes such a duty, and can be liable for negligence.

Pharmacy malpractice claims are often expert intensive as to causation of injuries, and the standard of care required of the pharmacist. The standard of care for a pharmacist in Massachusetts is what the average, ordinary, prudent pharmacist would have done under the same circumstances.
