Supporting you when you need it most

We understand that falling ill as a result of a prescription or medication error is extremely frustrating and can have a lasting impact on your life. However, we want to help you get on the road to recovery, and can do that by helping you get compensated for your pain and suffering.

Being prescribed the wrong dose or medication could have serious and/or long-term effects of your body. If you’ve suffered because of a medical professional’s mistake it can seriously impact your health and wellbeing. You shouldn’t have to suffer because of someone else’s mistake.

We can help you move forward with your life by getting you compensated for your suffering. Compensation can cover any financial losses you’ve suffered because of having to miss work or pay for medication you wouldn’t have had to if you hadn’t become more ill because of a prescription or medication error.

Not only will we fight to get you the compensation you deserve, but will also be there to support you when you need us to be. We know that suffering because of someone else’s mistake is frustrating, but with our help you’ll be able to put that in the past and concentrate on making a healthy recovery.

What is a prescription error?

Prescription errors differ slightly from medication errors because they are made by pharmacy employees rather than medical professionals like doctors and nurses.

If any of the following has happened to you and made you more ill or sicker for longer, we can help you get compensated for your suffering and any financial losses you may have been subjected to:

  • Makes a mistake when labelling your medication
  • Mixes up your prescription with another patient’s
  • Not ensuring that you are aware of how, and how often you should take your medication
  • Neglecting to keep records of what has been given to each patient
  • Failing to challenge your prescription if they feel it isn’t appropriate, or could be potentially harmful
  • Not checking their suppliers properly to ensure that no fake medication is purchased
  • Failing to keep or telling you to keep the medication at a certain temperature

We know how damaging, physically and mentally, falling ill because of a prescription error can be. With our help you can get your life back on track and focus on the future.

How compensation can help you

Our team will work alongside you to get you the compensation you need in order to be able to focus on recovery, without having to worry about money. For example, you might have had to pay for more medication because the medication error has made you more ill.

Your compensation would take these costs into account and likely reimburse you for the same amount.

You may have also had to take time off work to get better, meaning you lost out on wages that you otherwise would have received. If the medication error has caused serious health complications, you may even have to stop working completely.

We know that if this happens then the last thing that you want to do is worry about bills and other financial burdens weighing you down.

That’s why compensation can help to put your mind at ease. Our team can offer you advice specific to your situation, and will be by your side to guide and support you throughout the whole claims process.
