As patients, we place a great deal of trust in our pharmacies to ensure that our prescriptions are filled correctly. We know the pharmacist or technician reads the doctor’s prescription, pulls the medication off the shelf, counts out the pills, puts them in a vial, and puts on a label with instructions. That all seems easy, but pharmacy errors occur far more often than one may think. When a medication error results in serious injury of death, the victim or a loved one can seek legal recourse for damages.
A Chicago woman filed a lawsuit two years after a pharmacy allegedly incorrectly filled her prescription and failed to check to make sure she was receiving the proper dosage of her medication.
The plaintiff claims that in April 2015, a local pharmacy filled her prescription with a 100 mg dosage instead of the 10 mg that she was prescribed by her doctor. As a result, the woman said she sustained severe and permanent injury, resulting in substantial medical care.
The plaintiff seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.
Oftentimes, there is a significant gap between the filing a lawsuit and its resolution or trial. In the meantime, the plaintiff still needs to pay the bills. When faced with a mountain of medical expenses and/or the inability to return to work, a plaintiff may seek litigation funding.
Litigation funding is a cash advance to help with various expenses, whether those directly the result of the injury or daily living expenses. The money is not provided against an asset; rather, it is given against the potential settlement of the case. This means that funding decisions are made without the need for a credit check or employment verification. At Litigation Funding Corporation, we only care about the strength of the case.
If you believe you have been the victim of a prescription error, you should contact a personal injury attorney who can fully investigate your claim and determine your legal rights. Once the case is filed, contact Litigation Funding Corporation to determine if we can assist with your financial burdens while your lawyer seeks appropriate justice. We offer free, no-obligation litigation funding consultations. If your case is approved for a lawsuit cash advance, we will wire transfer or overnight mail the funds within 24 – 48 hours. You owe us nothing until your case settles. If for any reason your case is lost, your obligation to repay the cash advance is completely waived. That’s right; we take all the risk. Why wait?
