Champaign Incorrect Labeling Lawyers
Every year, innocent people die because of negligent pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Filling prescriptions may appear relatively easy, but there is a reason that pharmacists must go to school for years in order to practice at a pharmacy. That reason is that it is their job to know the inner workings of all of the medications that they give out to patients. Pharmacists are aware of the many, many potential things that can go wrong when they make even the slightest prescription error. But despite this knowledge, some pharmacists continue to make negligent errors.
When a pharmacist makes an error, he or she may be the cause of serious injury or death to an innocent patient. The Champaign incorrect labeling lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C. believe that any person who has a prescription filled also has the right to take medication without fear of injury due to pharmacy error.

Types of Incorrect Labeling
There are a number of ways in which pharmacists can make deadly mistakes when it comes to labeling medications. These mistakes often occur when the pharmacist is trying to work fast and fails to spend the appropriate amount of time with each prescription. Some common prescription drug labeling errors include:
- Misplaced decimal points in dosage amount or capsule number
- Switched labels
- Wrong drug name
Pharmacists have the lives of many patients in their hands; their actions should reflect that fact.
A pharmacist who has hurt you or someone you love should not go unpunished. To find out more about filing a medical malpractice case for pharmacy error, contact the Champaign incorrect labeling lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C., at (217) 328-2828.
