Since Elizabeth Maliakal took over my case for medical negligence. I am pleased to say her service was outstanding. Her communication was excellent. She was always up to date and made sure to keep in touch with me regularly. Elizabeth made sure I understood what was happening and always answered my questions in depth. Coming from a foreign background, I struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings because of the language barrier, but Elizabeth worked her way around this. I am grateful for all her hard work. Thank you to Elizabeth Maliakal and Hudgell Solicitors.

Thank you to Hudgell Solicitors particularly Sarah Moore who was assigned to my case. I was kept well informed throughout the whole process via email and phone, and always received a prompt reply to any questions that I had. It took a long time for my case to come to close for various reasons but never during this time did I feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. Sarah was very empathetic and supported me throughout with her excellent level of knowledge and professionalism. Thank you again.

FAQs

FAQs

How do I know if I have a prescription and medication error claim?

If a medical professional or a pharmacist has made a prescription error, and as a result, your condition has got worse or you’ve developed another condition, you may be entitled to prescription error compensation.

Many prescription errors don’t have serious consequences but for some patients they can have catastrophic and even fatal consequences.

If you think you’ve suffered as a result of a prescription error, contact our expert lawyers who can establish whether you have a claim for prescription error negligence.

How much time do I have to make a prescription error claim?

Generally, a prescription error claim should be made within three years from the date the negligence occurred or the date you were first aware that you had suffered a significant injury or illness due to negligence. However, there are exceptions.

Seek advice from one of our medical negligence solicitors who specialises in prescription error cases as soon as possible.
