When it comes to common medications, one of the most popular locations that we will go to is the pharmacy. After you have visited your GP to determine what is wrong, you will be given a prescription, an outline as to what medication you need to take and how much. Armed with this prescription, your pharmacist is able to prepare almost any type of medication that you require to be treated from an ailment.
Although in most situations they do a great job, pharmacists are only human and as such mistakes are possible, unfortunately when it comes to mistakes with your medication these can be rather serious and they can lead to a whole range of potentially serious injuries. If you are left with injuries as the result of negligence on behalf of your pharmacist, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim for your personal injury.
