Prescription errors can have devastating consequences. People put their trust in medical practitioners, chemists and pharmacies to prescribe the correct medication, but unfortunately this trust can sometimes be misplaced and mistakes can happen.

Being prescribed the wrong medication can have serious consequences and harbour devastating side effects - in some rare cases, taking the wrong medication for an extended period of time can even cause death.

Forbes advise that patients should always check the packaging and read all of the information included with any medication before taking it.

If you have been prescribed the wrong medication or have been prescribed medication for too long causing you harm, you may be able to make a clinical negligence compensation claim for your injuries. These injuries can range from minor side effects to serious life changing injuries.

Forbes Solicitors are experienced in obtaining compensation for clients who have suffered injury due to prescription errors and can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Examples of prescription Error Claims

Some examples of prescription error cases our specialised team deal with include:

  • Incorrect medication dosage being prescribed
  • Medication being prescribed for too long
  • Supply of medication the patient may be allergic to
  • Medications being prescribed without the proper health checks being carried out
  • Combining two or more medications which should never be taken together

If you have suffered a personal injury due to prescription errors involving any of the above, get in touch with the expert solicitors at Forbes today.
