Compensation for drug and misdiagnosis injuries

Patients can be left with traumatising injuries 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 prescription medication or misdiagnosis, you may be able to claim compensation for medical negligence. The amount of compensation will be dependent on the severity of the impact of the drug or misdiagnosis has had on your health.

Examples of drug and medical misdiagnosis claims often 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
