Can I claim for a wrong prescription?
If you’ve been prescribed the wrong medication either by your doctor, hospital or pharmacist, and this has led to your condition worsening or has caused serious side effects, then you need to speak to Mercury Legal immediately about your right to make a no win, no fee claim for compensation.
There are a number of ways errors can be made when prescribing medicine by your doctor, hospital or pharmacist, including:
• Taking the prescribed medication for too long
• Being prescribed the wrong dosage
• Taking medication which you are allergic to
• Or being prescribed medications which should not be taken together
Errors in prescribing the correct medicine can also led to a loss of earnings, due to prolonged absence from work and additional medical costs.
If you have suffered as a result of taking the wrong medication, then you need to speak to us immediately for free, confidential legal advice.
It doesn’t cost you anything to speak to us and you are under no obligation to pursue a claim, even if we think you have a case for compensation.
Find how we can help you to make a claim by calling us today or request a convenient call back.
