Foster Law Offices represents Hawaii residents and visitors who suffer serious injuries as a result of pharmacy negligence. A pharmacy negligence case can arise out of a number of different scenarios:
- Pharmacist mistakenly fills the wrong prescription
- Pharmacist mistakenly provides the patient with someone else's prescription
- Pharmacist mislabeling or misbranding the prescription
- Pharmacist negligent in counseling patient about prescription
In Hawaii, pharmacies exist in all shapes and sizes. From the local mom and pop pharmacy to the pharmacy department(s) of large companies like CVS/Long's, WallMart, and Costco, Hawaii residents and tourists rely on the pharmacist to follow their doctor's orders when it comes to prescriptions. Pharmacists maintain a legal duty under Hawaii law to fill/refill a patient's prescription per the prescribing doctor or provider's directive.
However, mistakes can and do happen. The consequences of a pharmacological mistake can cause serious and life-threatening injuries to the unsuspecting patient.
