Drug or Prescription Claim

Have you ever been prescribed the wrong drug or simply been given the wrong drug from the chemist? You may have a drug or prescription claim.

It’s never deliberate, but it happens. Either a Doctor can get it wrong or the chemist mis-reads or misunderstands the prescription. Usually this doesn’t cause a problem, particularly if it’s spotted straight away. That’s not always the case though, and the consequences of getting it wrong can be very unpleasant. If you think you have a drug or prescription claim we can help.

This is why it is important to seek legal advice from one of our team straight away. We will then advise you fully and guide you through the drug or prescription claim process if we believe you have reasonable prospects of bringing a successful medical negligence claim.

What can we do to help with your drug or prescription claim?

A legal claim can be brought against anyone that has treated you, and must be brought to court within three years (in rare cases you can exceed this) of the date you first knew, or could reasonably have been expected to know, that you had suffered a significant injury caused by someone else’s negligent acts or omissions. In the case of a child the three years runs from their 18th birthday.
