Compensation for drug and medication injuries

Patients can be injured when errors are made with the prescription drugs given to them, or if their illness has been incorrectly diagnosed. If you have been injured because of incorrect drugs or misdiagnosis, you may be able to claim compensation for medical negligence.

Examples of drug and misdiagnosis claims include:

  • Failure to correctly diagnose a medical problem
  • Failure to refer to a specialist or arrange further tests
  • Children being prescribed an adult dose of medication
  • Repeat prescribing of medication without proper review
  • Patients being prescribed the wrong dose
  • Chemists and pharmacists dispensing the wrong medication or an incorrect dose of drugs
