Compensation claims for drug addiction after treatment

For those of us who are required to take medication after treatment, they will understand the benefits that the drugs can give them as they guide us through the recovery stages. In the vast majority of cases, anybody who receives medication finds that they’re either able to manage their condition or feel better as their health improves. However, mistakes are sometimes made by the doctor, GP or pharmacy and this can lead to you becoming addicted to the drug and cause you to alter the way you live as a result. If you believe this has affected you, then you could be entitled to compensation as a result.

Who could have been responsible for your drug addiction?

If you feel that you have developed a drug addiction as a result of medical negligence, then you could be eligible to make a claim against anyone who you believe has failed to treat you to the best of their abilities. A claim could be taken against a number of people, including your GP, doctor, nurse or any other medical professional who has put your health at risk. The administration of the wrong drugs can lead to serious consequences which directly impact your health and can also leave you unable to work, if you do find yourself in this situation then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence, and you could consider making a compensation claim.

How could these errors occur?

If you have suffered a drug addiction as a result of administered drugs, then you could make a claim for compensation. Some of the common examples of this include:

·         Prescription of weaker or stronger medicine than is necessary

·         Incorrect dosage of the right medication

·         Medicine prescribed that causes allergic reactions

·         Misdiagnosis followed by prescription of inappropriate medication

·         Claims for receiving another patients medication.
