Medication Errors

Medication Errors

Problems can arise when a doctor makes an error in prescription or a pharmacist dispenses the wrong type or amount of medication. Such errors can lead to overdoses, the worsening of current symptoms, the development of new symptoms and over a longer period, dependency on certain medications.

If you or a family member have been prescribed or supplied an incorrect drug that has caused your health to suffer unnecessarily, you may have a claim for compensation.

At Price Slater Gawne, we cover all aspects of medication error claims.

Typical claims include:

    • Where a GP prescribes medication that the patient is allergic to or should not be taking due to other health concerns
    • Failure to prescribe or supply the correct type and dosage of medication
    • Failure to provide the correct guidance on the administration of medication
    • Failure to monitor a patient correctly following the prescription of medication
    • Failure in the withdrawal of medication from a patient
    • Supply of faulty medication
