The purpose of this article is to answer some of your questions relating to auto immune disorders and what you can possibly do should you or someone you love has been harmed through pharmacy malpractice.

1. What are auto-immune disorders? To put it simply, imagine if you stepped on a rusty nail or cut your hand with something unclean. Germs would immediately start invading your body. Your body then counteracts this by attacking the germs. Auto-immune disorders occur when the body itself starts treating its own vital organs as germs and attacks them.

2. Why do auto-immune disorders happen? No one really knows why. All that is known is that they are not contagious from person to person. It is also known that something has to trigger the immune system to behave in this way. Some causes may be infections, pregnancy and drugs.

3. If I or someone I love has been given a drug that has triggered an auto immune disorder, what rights do we have? Doctors and pharmacies are required to give a duty of care when dealing with patients. Pharmacies are also required to issue safeguards when distributing medications to insure that you get the correct ones. If you can establish that either your doctor or pharmacist has been negligent in these areas then you may be entitled to monetary damages.

4. What should I do if my auto immune disorder was caused by a pharmacy mistake? You should get in touch with a medical malpractice attorney immediately. They will be able to best advise you on the merits of your case as well as advise you on the legal process. They may also be able to give you an idea on what type of compensation you can expect should your case be successful.
