Defective Drugs and Medicine Compensation Claims Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee
Our product liability team has considerable experience of dealing with claims for defective drugs and medicines.
Pharmaceutical companies invest millions of pounds in the development of new drugs to treat a variety of conditions. Whilst most medications you take will cause no ill-effects and will serve the purpose in which they are given, some medications will not always function in the way that they should, and sometimes the patients who use the medication can develop severe side-effects and suffer from serious and long-term health problems.
If you have suffered illness or injury as a result of taking defective drugs or medicines, incorrect prescriptions, an error in supply by your pharmacy, wrong dosage or any other related error, our lawyers can help you claim compensation. To discuss your specific case with a member of our expert team, contact us today by calling 0800 988 8082 or complete our online enquiry form and we will get back to you right away.
Our solicitors have considerable experience in handling claims relating to defective drugs and medicines. We can provide you with the advice and support you require, when you are looking to make a claim for compensation.
Whilst many claims arising from defective drugs or medicines are as a result of the medicines themselves, there could also be instances of a GP prescribing incorrect medication, or a pharmacy error which results in the wrong medication or the wrong dosage being dispensed. Unfortunately, an error such as this may lead to quite serious health complications for an individual.
If you have experienced complications or serious side effects after taking medication, we are able to assist you and assess whether you will be able to seek compensation. Our goal is to make the claims process as simple as possible for you, because we understand the challenges you may be facing at this time. We are also able to assist with any access to medical care, and rehabilitation services that you may require.
There is a three-year time limit for making a claim for compensation and raising legal proceedings for a medication claim resulting in physical or psychiatric injury. It is therefore essential that if you have experienced any effects, you seek expert legal advice as soon as possible.
