Have you been given the wrong medication?
Although you can now buy many medications at outlets such as supermarkets and petrol stations, some medicines can only be obtained in a pharmacy. Whilst some treatments can be sold by a pharmacist without a prescription, they may need to ask some questions regarding your medical history to ensure that the treatment is appropriate for you.
However, if you need a prescription only medication, you will first need to visit your local doctor, hospital or walk-in clinic in order to have the medication prescribed. Although we trust medical professionals to do the best for us at all times, sometimes things can go wrong.
If your doctor prescribes the wrong medication, or you’re given the wrong medication by mistake, it could have catastrophic effects on your health. Rather than helping you to get better or maintaining your health, it could be harmful, or even fatal in serious cases.
If you’ve been given the wrong medication and it’s made you unwell or it has complicated an existing illness, you may be able to make a claim for compensation with help from a personal injury solicitor in Lostwithiel. As this type of conduct can constitute medical negligence, it’s perfectly possible that an injury solicitor in Lostwithiel would be able to help you to make a compensation claim and you could successfully obtain compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered.
Should you make a claim with a personal injury solicitor in Lostwithiel straightaway?
If you’ve been hurt and you want to obtain compensation as quickly as possible, you may want to contact a personal injury solicitor in Lostwithiel soon after your injuries have occurred. Although you aren’t required to make a compensation claim straightaway, there can be time limits on how long you’ve got to obtain compensation after an injury so it’s important that you make sure that you don’t run out of time.
Generally, a personal injury solicitor in Lostwithiel will be able to assist a claimant for up to three years after the incident which caused the injuries occurred so as long as you get in touch before this time limit is up, there’s a good chance that you’ll be eligible to make a claim with help from an injury solicitor.
If you want to make your claim now, or if you just want to find out more about the claims procedure, why not contact us? We even provide no-obligation advice free of charge so you don’t have to worry about paying costly legal bills.
