Tiger Woods Arrested For DUI
Golf great Tiger Woods was arrested and charged with DUI after being found by police asleep in his car while the engine was running. Woods told the police he was on 4 different prescribed medications and blamed the event on an unexpected reaction to the drugs.
Alone and when taken properly, many drugs are safe. Taken incorrectly or together, however, can be another story.
Drug stores and pharmacies improperly fill prescriptions and commit other errors with alarming frequency. Very serious harm and even death may result from these preventable mistakes.
"Whether it was the pharmacist's mistake or user error, a person who takes an inappropriate dose of their prescribed medication or who takes a medicine other than what was ordered by their doctor may suffer potentially life-threatening complications." says Scott Donaldson, attorney.
If you have been affected by a pharmacy wrongdoing or have lost a loved one due to a pharmacist's carelessness in filling a prescription, you should talk to an injury attorney about your right to pursue financial compensation for what you have been through.
