Home » News & Knowledge » Incorrect Medication – Case Study

Our client approached us after she was incorrectly dispensed the wrong medication following falling ill with tonsillitis.

Shortly after taking the medication she began to feel unwell, experiencing sickness and lethargy. The error was noticed by a nurse who had been called in due to the client’s illness., and it was admitted by the pharmacy that they had selected the wrong medication when preparing this for our client.

Outcome

As a result of this negligence, our client experienced over 3 weeks of avoidable pain and suffering. Our solicitors successfully obtained £1,400 in compensation for our client.
