Prescription Errors - Jarmans Solicitors

Prescription Errors

Jarmans Solicitors are here to help you with Prescription Errors

Being prescribed the wrong medication or the wrong dosage can have a detrimental impact on your health and wellbeing. Studies have shown that over 200 million medication errors occur in the UK every year. These can either be mistakes in prescribing medication or errors in dispensing medicines.

Types of prescription errors

There are many different ways that prescription errors can happen, but the most common include:

Dispensing Errors:

• Mistakes made when handing over the medication, for example put in the wrong bag or given to the wrong person

• Labelling the medication incorrectly

• Dispensing the wrong dosage

Prescribing Errors:

• Prescribing a product that you are allergic to

• Prescribing the wrong dosage

• Medication which clashes with other medication

• Prescribing medication without a regular check-up.

If a prescription error causes your condition to worsen or another condition to develop, you may be entitled to make a claim for prescription error compensation. Jarmans Solicitors are able to advise you on whether you have a case and are able to offer compassionate and impartial support throughout. Contact us to make an appointment with one of our team.

    From the moment I instructed Jarmans Solicitors I felt confident this would be a quick and seemless purchase, unlike my previous Solicitors! Sonia Thrower in particular was amazing at keeping me updated throughout.


    • Execllent!!

    We have just successfully purchased our first home with the help from Sonia Thrower at Jarmans. We are very impressed with the service that we received, at first we were quite worried as the person that was given our case had left and Sonia took over at very early stages. With our purchase it was very different to normal as we also had land attached to our property where it started to get a little confusing with title numbers etc
