Potential Damages for Pharmacist Malpractice in Ohio January 30, 2012.

When you have an experienced malpractice lawyer in Ohio helping you seek compensation for professional malpractice, you have a good chance at recovering all compensation you are entitled to if negligence can be proven. A pharmacist’s mistake can lead to debilitating conditions or even death, and you have every right to hold accountable those who have caused you or a loved one harm.

Compensation for Pharmacist Malpractice

Medical settlements in this kind of professional malpractice case could include compensation for any of the following:

  • disability;
  • loss of earnings;
  • emotional distress;
  • pain and suffering;
  • past, current and future medical expenses; and
  • any other monetary amount necessary to cover your losses and make you whole.

There is also the possibility of punitive damages in pharmacist malpractice, although rare, if it can be demonstrated that your pharmacist engaged in outrageous misconduct and should be punished as a deterrent. As someone who hasn’t studied law, it could be difficult for you to argue this case yourself.

In a professional malpractice wrongful death case, medical settlements for pain and suffering might be restricted, or not recoverable at all, depending on current wrongful death statutes. Your malpractice lawyer in Ohio can go over your case, review case histories and give you an idea of all compensation to which you may deserve.
