No win no fee* in Broadway
You would have thought that it would be almost next to impossible for a qualified pharmacy worker to dispense the wrong medication, assuming of course that a mistake had not been made by the doctor who wrote the prescription. Apart from the fact that they have to study their art before they can land a job, prescriptions have to be checked by two pharmacy workers before they are handed over to a patient. This is a good system that typically works well.
Unfortunately though, errors can be made. All it takes is for one pharmacist to make a mistake and another to not have his eye on the ball for a potentially life-threatening situation to occur. It’s no exaggeration to say that sloppy pharmacists could put a patient in very grave danger indeed if they were to hand her the wrong medication. If you’ve been given the wrong medicine by a pharmacy, you might be able to use the services of a good 100% no win no fee* Broadway solicitor to take action if you didn’t notice the error and went on to take the incorrect drugs you were given.
Absent-minded pharmacists and how no win no fee* Broadway solicitors can help you claim recompense
It will be worth bearing in mind that you’ll only be able to use the services of a no win no fee* Broadway solicitor if you didn’t notice the dispensing error, took the wrong medication, and went on to suffer ill health as a consequence. If you noticed the error before using the medication, or used it for a while without suffering any ill effects, it will be most unlikely that you’ll have a claim for a personal injury compensation payout.
On the other hand, if you do suffer as a consequence of being given the wrong drugs for your condition or after being instructed to take medicine at the wrong dose, you could be in line for a payout of many thousands of pounds, depending on the ill effects you suffered.
In most cases, a pharmacist’s negligence will not be too hard to prove if you retained the medicine you were given along with the packaging it came in. All your no win no fee* Broadway solicitor will have to do is prove that the drugs you were given were not what was prescribed by your doctor. If you have medical evidence that proves you were made ill as a consequence of taking the wrong medicine, you may have a good chance of winning a payout.
