Compensation claims for lab errors

When you are undergoing a medical procedure, it is common for your GP to refer your condition to a lab while they further examine the cause of your concern. Unfortunately, some mistakes can be made which can have an adverse effect on your health and leave you in a lot of pain and discomfort through no fault of your own. Errors made in a lab could involve a number of serious issues, whether it’s a misdiagnosis of your symptoms or the wrong medication has been administered. Either way, this type of medical negligence is unacceptable and as a result you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to help you with the fees that arise.

A lab error can cause a patient to have deal with the effects of an illness for longer than expected and can also lead to a new health issue. If you have been given an incorrect prescription or a badly labelled prescription then you may be entitled to financial compensation.
