Prescription Errors Compensation Claims
If you are feeling unwell, a visit to your local GP, doctors surgery or hospital followed by a medicine prescription should get you back to full health quickly and simply. You should always expect to receive the highest level of care, and thankfully, our healthcare system usually delivers just that. However, if something does go wrong, we can help you receive the compensation you deserve.
Doctors have a duty to ensure that the medication and the dosage prescribed is correct per patient, they must also ensure that it won’t interfere with any pre-existing medical conditions. If a pharmacist, doctor or other medical professional is negligent or otherwise breaches the duty of care they owe to you, and you are injured as a result, you may be able to make a claim for clinical negligence.
We have a highly effective and proven system in place to deal with cases relating to prescription errors and medical negligence. We can:
- access medical reports quickly
- ascertain the severity of the error
- keep you updated and advised without the use of medical jargon
- deliver maximum compensation settlements smoothly
