A pharmaceutical injury occurs if you are prescribed the wrong drug – so something you don’t need, or something you are allergic to – and taking it makes you ill. This is also sometimes referred to as a clinical negligence claim or a medical negligence claim.
You can also claim for pharmaceutical injury compensation if you are prescribed a particular pharmaceutical drug and it turns out to have a detrimental effect on your health.
Pharmaceutical injury claims
Remember that, because most successful claims happen when the injured party was not at fault for the accident, we may not be able to help if you have taken something out of date or that wasn’t prescribed for you.
If your doctor has prescribed you the wrong drug, he or she may be responsible, but won’t be responsible for paying your compensation. Because mistakes happen, all medical professionals must have insurance – that is a legal requirement – so that if an error should ever happen there are plenty of provisions for looking after them and compensating them in full.
Similarly, if there was something wrong with the actual pharmaceutical you took, then that will be the responsibility either of the company who produced it or the place you purchased it. In both cases, the money paid to you will be taken care of by the relevant insurer.
