Claims for an error mixing prescription drugs
Prescriptions are one of the most common ways to treat illnesses and injuries. Across the UK, after almost any visit to the GP you will be given some form of prescription which can either help to treat your injury or to take away some of the associated pain. Although in most cases prescriptions will work well to nurse you back to health, unfortunately this is not always the case and if you do happen to end up with an error in your prescription, you could find yourself in a far worse health condition than before.
Although in many cases prescriptions are incredibly accurate, mistakes can still be made, and if you do find that you are the victim of this you may consider your options for making a compensation claim.
WHO COULD BE AT FAULT?
When it comes to prescriptions they are primarily the responsibility of your healthcare professional and then the responsibility of your pharmacist and these are the two people who you could consider making a claim against if you feel that you have been the victim of a prescription error. If the error is specific to the mixing of the prescription then chances are that your claim will more likely be geared towards your pharmacist than your doctor.
WHAT ARE SOME SITUATIONS WHERE A COMPENSATION CLAIM COULD BE MADE?
If you are the victim of a prescription mixing error there are a number of situations where you may consider making a claim and these include:
- Claims against your pharmacist for negligence
- Claims against your doctor for a failed prescription
- Claims for prescription mixing errors
- Claims for using the wrong ingredients in a prescription
- Claims for an allergic reaction to a prescription
