Whilst pharmacists have very responsible jobs, their work could hardly be described as akin to rocket science or brain surgery. All they effectively have to do is follow the written instructions of doctors and consultants and make sure they are dishing out the right medicine, with the right usage instructions to the right patients. Of course they are also called upon for medication advice. When they do make mistakes however, it can lead to victims needing injury lawyers in Thatcham to help them to claim compensation.
The consequences of handing over the wrong medicine, or the right drugs with incorrect usage instructions, can have devastating effects, especially for the very young, the elderly, or people with serious underlying health problems.
The fact of the matter is however, that mistakes are made in pharmacies up and down the country. Whether in independent pharmacies, chain pharmacies or dispensaries in hospitals; mistakes are made and injury lawyers in Thatcham (or anywhere else here in the UK for that matter) are called into action.
Using injury lawyers in Thatcham to claim for incorrect prescription damage
If you or a member of your family has been given the wrong prescription and you have suffered either psychologically or physically as a consequence, you could be well placed to use the services of a firm of injury lawyers in Thatcham to help you to sue the pharmacy in question for compensation.
Your injury lawyers will stand a much better chance of winning you the compensation you deserve, if you have been savvy enough to hold onto as much evidence as possible, that proves your pharmacist made a mistake.
On top of your medical notes, it will be incredibly useful to any injury lawyers if you could provide the packaging that your medication came in. If the sticker that’s been added to this does not match the contents of the box, or the instructions your doctor wrote on your prescription, your case will be fairly cut and dried.
