Successful claim against Pharmacy for Dispensing Error

Posted By admin - 30th October 2018

We successfully pursued a claim against a pharmacist following a dispensing error which led to our client suffering an inadvertent overdose of an anti-psychotic drug.

Our client ingested a dose approximately 5 times more than that prescribed by his GP as a result of the dispensing error. Following the overdose, our client suffered heart attack like symptoms making him believe that he was going to die.

Our client was admitted to hospital and suffered a prolonged exacerbation of his psychological symptoms.
