Prescription Error Claims
A prescription error can have serious health implications. Taking the wrong medicine can cause serious side effects and can even result in death depending on the medication that was taken, the dose, and the length of time involved.
If you suffered injuries as a result of being prescribed or given the wrong medication, you may be able to bring a prescription error claim against your hospital, general practitioner or pharmacy. Our team are experienced in successfully pursuing prescription error claims and will advise you if they believe you have a potential case.
