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.
