Issues caused by an incorrect prescription problem

An incorrect prescription issue could cause considerable problems. If you are misdiagnosed and you are given the incorrect prescription as a result of this, your actual problem may continue to go unresolved. As it is unresolved, it may get worse, and at the same time you could also suffer side effects from the incorrect prescription that has been given to you. In some cases where a diagnosis has not been made properly, and a problem is left to linger, some people could be left with permanent issues.

If it is the case that the incorrect prescription has been issued because the treatment plan was incorrect even when the diagnosis was correct, the same kinds of problems could occur. If it is a case of a mix-up from a pharmacy then, again, you could end up suffering for longer than you should have, and any complications you are left with could be significant.

It can only take one small error to cause this kind of problem. In some cases, the issues that can be caused can be considerable. This is why it is incredibly important that this kind of issue is not allowed to happen.

When could you be eligible to claim compensation?

You could be eligible to claim medical negligence compensation if you have suffered any form of injury or loss as a result of some form of negligence. If you suffer due to an issue with a prescription then this can be considered as part of the case.

A key question we ask is this: have you suffered for longer or suffered worse as a direct result of what happened? If the answer is yes, that is what you could claim for, and you could be eligible to recover damages to reflect any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused.

To substantiate a claim, we need to confirm that you have been the victim of some form of negligence. When it comes to a prescription issue that is not your fault, it is hard to ignore the obvious fact that someone has made some kind of mistake during some part of the process. If it was a simple error or a mix up then that could constitute negligence. If you are misdiagnosed or not accurately diagnosed, it may come down to a question of whether a competent decision should have been made in the first place.

If we believe that you are eligible to pursue a case, we may be able to represent you for a legal claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.
