Pharmacy gives patient incorrect medication by mistake

Pharmacy mistake compensation claim

Pharmacy mistakes are rare, but they do occur and the consequences can be serious. We recently dealt with a pharmacy mistake case for a client who was given the wrong strength of medication when she called in to her local pharmacy to collect her prescription.

The pharmacy mistake arose because the pharmacist misread her prescription when dispensing it.

As a result of the pharmacist’s error our client suffered severe chemical burns to her skin which exacerbated the very skin condition the medication had been prescribed to treat.

She called our free legal helpline and we agreed to take on her pharmacy mistake compensation claim, working on a no win, no fee basis.

An early admission of legal responsibility by the pharmacy for the mistake led to rapid out of court settlement of the claim. Our client received compensation for the pain and distress she had suffered as a result of the pharmacist’s error.
