What is your legal question, my friend?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I received a prescription that belonged to some one else. Is there any legal action that can be taken for this?
Lawyer: Loren, Attorney replied 6 months ago
Were you injured? Do you have damages? Medical or hospital bills from taking the wrong medication?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No none of that.
Lawyer: Loren, Attorney replied 6 months ago
Thank you for the additional information.
Phamacists are liable for their negligence, just as any other healthcare professional.
However, also like other professional negligence claims, there is a requirement of actual damages required to support the claim. In fact, damages are a required element of the claim.
So, without that element, no viable claim exists to assert in court.
I am sorry. I wish I could tell you otherwise, but I do not want to see you spinning your wheels with this.Please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
