Incorrect prescription leads to compensation

Incorrect Prescriptions

Each year more than 40,000 medication errors, including incorrect prescriptions are made in the NHS. Approximately 50% of these errors will cause moderate to severe harm to patients.

At Treadstone Law we acted for a client in Wythenshawe who had been given an incorrect prescription. A result of which meant they suffered one month’s symptoms. We took on the case and were able  to negotiate a payout of £2,500 for the Client, who fortunatley didnt suffer any long term effects.

WHAT ARE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH SOME COMMON DISPENSING/ADMINISTERING ERRORS?

When it comes to problems associated with dispensing/administering errors some of the most common cases that we deal with include:

  • Administering the wrong medication
  • Incorrect prescription
  • Prescribing incorrect amount of medication
  • Prescribing medications containing known allergies.

 

ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL COSTS I CLAIM FOR?

  • Further medical costs – if you are prescribed the incorrect medication then you may require further medical treatment as a result. This can be expensive and you could be eligible for a personal injury claim to compensate you for any costs you may have incurred
  • Loss of income – if you are unable to work or need to take additional time off work as a result of a dispensing error then you may be eligible to make a compensation claim for any loss of income that you have incurred as a result.
