Negligent Supervision of Technicians

Pharmacy Error Lawyers Representing Patients on Cape Cod

The Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III is a personal injury law firm whose attorneys represent people who have been hurt in a wide range of incidents, including those related to pharmacy negligence. Prescription drugs may wreak havoc on the people whom they are meant to treat, especially when they are provided in the wrong dose or without appropriate warnings and instructions. Our Cape Cod pharmacy negligence attorneys fight aggressively to help victims pursue the full legal remedies that they deserve based on harm caused by negligent supervision of technicians.

Holding an Employer Accountable for Your Injuries

A person who accidentally overdoses on a prescription drug or is injured as a result of unexpected side effects has a right to seek compensation from any of the parties that were responsible. The damages typically available in these cases include compensation for medical bills, the costs of future treatment, lost income and earning capacity, and pain and suffering. In some circumstances, the family members of a person harmed by the negligent supervision of technicians may also seek “loss of consortium” damages that are designed to compensate for the loss of a loved one’s companionship, support, love, and guidance. In tragically fatal cases, the family of a person who dies as a result of a prescription drug mishap has the right to seek compensation for their wrongful death.

Often, the first person blamed in prescription drug cases is the technician who filled the prescription. These cases commonly arise when a technician overrides or disregards warnings about how a particular drug may interact with other drugs that the patient is already taking. In other situations, a technician may simply fill a prescription with the wrong drug or provide inappropriate instructions.

What many people may not realize is that the technician’s managers and employer may also be liable for their negligent supervision of technicians. Employers are generally vicariously liable for negligence by their workers while they are acting within the scope of the employment relationship. An employer may also be held directly responsible for any injuries caused by failing to properly supervise workers. In the pharmacy context, this may include monitoring performance and imposing quality control checks to ensure that pharmacists and staff are filing prescriptions accurately and providing adequate safety warnings and instructions. Theories of direct and vicarious liability may be pursued simultaneously. It is important to approach your case from as many different potential angles as possible so that your opportunities to receive compensation are maximized.
