Pharmacy Claims and Chemist Claims

It has been discovered that pharmacy mistakes are more common than first imagined due to the fact that all dispensaries are supervised by qualified pharmacists. Most errors in dispensing a patient’s prescription do not have adverse health consequences for the patient because they realise it is the wrong drug or it is picked up by their families or GP. These are added to the Pharmacy’s Risk Register and reported to the General Pharmaceutical Council.

However, there are times when the following mistakes by your pharmacist or GP can cause damage to your organs or even death if for example, the prescription advised by the GP is too high a dose for that particular prescribed drug and the chemist has not picked it up the Surgery’s error. The following are common pharmacy errors which you may be able to claim compensation:-

Incorrect mixing of a prescription medication

  • Dispensing the wrong prescription
  • Administering errors
  • Using damaged ingredients within the prescription
  • Giving incorrect instructions on the use of prescription medication

At Thomson & Bancks, our medical negligence specialists will deal sensitively and efficiently with your claim for compensation or that brought on behalf of a loved one’s Estate. The civil law attempts to place people back in the same place as they would have been had they not been injured by a medical mistake or left untreated so they have not fully recovered as they should have done.

Where that is not possible, an increasing amount of damages are payable for where the consequences have been more serious for you. Also, financial losses caused by the injury or non-recovery of your condition are claimable, for instance, if you are not able to return to work or require extra services because of a resulting disability which would have been avoided had there been no negligence.

If you or your family have been affected by medical negligence, please call our specialist Solicitor, Lucy Sherry, on 01242 235250 to find out if you may have a claim. We will offer you a first free interview to learn about the next steps and our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreements for funding your legal claim.
