Pharmaceutical Errors

An error by your pharmacist can have potentially devastating consequences, such as serious injury or even death.

If you do suffer injury or illness as a result of taking the wrong drug or the wrong dosage, then you may have a claim for clinical negligence and our specialist team of solicitors will be able to assist you with a claim.

Chemist error? Pharmacy mistake?

A pharmaceutical error occurs when you are given the wrong medicine or the incorrect dosage by your pharmacist compared to what was prescribed by your doctor.

It may also be the case that you are sold the wrong medicine for your illness without the need for a prescription. For example, your pharmacist may sell you eardrops for an eye problem. Eardrops are almost always unsuitable for use in the eye and this can lead to an injury.

You may not realise the mistake by your pharmacist and take the wrong type or the wrong dosage of medicine.
