General Practitioner Prescription Negligence 

General Practitioners can sometimes prescribe medication repeatedly for many years without considering whether a repeat prescription is actually suitable for the patient.  This sometimes leads to physical injury from chronic overdose or addiction to certain medications.

Pharmacist Negligence

Pharmacists can make mistakes because they cannot read the doctor’s writing on the prescription, or accidentally give an adult’s dose to a child.

If your doctor has prescribed a particular kind of medicine, but you have been given a different kind or a different dose by the pharmacist, you may be able to make a claim for compensation – just remember to keep the packaging your medicine was in.

Have you been given the wrong prescription and medication causing personal injury?

There are many different ways in which patients can end up taking the wrong medication.  For example:-

  • Medication prescribed for too long
  • Incorrect dosage being prescribed
  • Medication supplied which patient is allergic to
  • Two or more medicines which should not be taken together
  • Incorrect instructions given regarding how and when to take your medicine
