Prescription Error and Drug Side Effect Claims
If you or someone you know has suffered as a result of drug side effects, compensation could help to improve your quality of life and cover much of the costs associated with your medical issues. However, to be successful with a claim of this kind, it is essential to get the advice of highly skilled solicitors who can help prove that any treatment subscribed that has caused a bad reaction was done so negligently. At JMW, we are highly experienced in cases of this type.

Most people who are admitted to hospital or visit their GP are administered medicine in some form. There is therefore always a danger of mistakes being made - such as an administrative error or the misinterpretation of instructions passed from one medical professional to another - and the consequences can be very severe.
A mistake could result in you either being given the incorrect drug, being given too much of a certain drug or not being given enough of the drug that you need - all of which can lead to suffering that could otherwise have been avoided. You could also be unwittingly given a medicine to which you are allergic, which can result in you suffering a very serious reaction.
