    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Injury lawyer in Redruth


    All prescriptions that are dispensed from pharmacies must be checked by at least two members of staff before they are handed over the patient. You would have thought that this would make it almost impossible for mistakes to be made, but astoundingly, some people do end up with the wrong drugs. The eagle-eyed might be able to spot any mistakes made by pharmacists before taking a drug, but for those who do not notice that a label does not correspond with what’s on the side of the box or bottle, the consequences can be disastrous, especially if the patient taking the medicine is an infant.

    If you have become ill after being handed the wrong drugs by a pharmacist, you may be able to use the services of an injury lawyer in Redruth to win compensation. Depending on the severity of the adverse effects the wrong medicine has on you, the injury lawyer in Redruth, you use may be able to win you many thousands of pounds.

    Pharmacist negligence and injury lawyer in Redruth

    It’s not just the dispensing of the wrong drug that could do you harm. You could come to harm if your pharmacist instructs you to take the wrong dose of a medicine or tells you to take a drug for too long. A decimal point either way can be life threatening with some drugs, so this isn’t a matter that should be taken lightly. Don’t let the sloppy working practices of a pharmacy go unpunished. If you don’t use an injury lawyer to take action, the next mistake the pharmacist in question makes could be fatal.

    Bear in mind that your doctor may have made a mistake when writing out your prescription. Pharmacies are required to retain the prescriptions they are given, so this should be fairly easy to ascertain if it is the case. Your injury lawyer in Redruth would be able to look into this on your behalf.
