Pharmaceutical Claims

When we are ill, the last thing we want is the medication we’ve been prescribed to make us feel even worse. Pharmacists have a duty of care to ensure that any medication they dispense doesn’t have a negative effect on your health and wellbeing, or even cause you to develop additional symptoms of illness.

Pharmaceutical Compensation Claims

Pharmaceutical Claims

There are two types of pharmaceutical claims. The first is against the pharmacist or the pharmacy issuing your medication; if the medication provided to you was incorrectly dispensed, you could pursue a claim for the injury you suffered as a result of their negligence. The second is against the manufacturer; if the medication supplied to the pharmacy is defective, and causes you injury, you could pursue a product liability claim against the manufacturer.

Proving a medical negligence case involving pharmacists and medicines

  • Breach of duty: Your pharmacist owes you a duty of care when dispensing prescriptions or selling you medication. We have to prove, with expert evidence, that the medication you received was incorrectly and negligently given to you
  • Harm: we need to prove that the negligence caused you harm
