Drugs are intended to help people who suffer illness or injury, but sometimes these drugs can cause side effects that damage people in other ways. This can have very serious consequences, and if this happens to you as a consequence of a medical professional’s negligent actions, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation to help improve your quality of life.

This area of law, however, is highly complex, and so it is vital you have the right legal team behind you to help you through the process. At McHale & Co, we are vastly experienced in dealing with claims of this type, providing the guidance you need at what can be a particularly testing time. Speak to us today on 0161 928 3848 or contact us via the online enquiry form on this page and we can discuss your situation.

 

The different types of drug side effects

The administration of drugs is very serious, and has to be carried out correctly in order to reduce the risk of medication causing harm to the person it is supposed to be helping. However, mistakes can happen, and there have been various instances of patients suffering due to errors made by medical professionals. Typically, a drug side effect might involve:

  • Overdose
  • Allergies
  • Errors made in the dispensing stage
  • Errors made during the monitoring stage
  • Toxicity

A drug may cause unexpected side effects if it is administered in the incorrect dosage or without the correct checks being made regarding its suitability for a particular patient, but there is also the risk that the incorrect drug may be given to a patient. This can obviously be extremely dangerous, and anyone who suffers in such a way must be able to make a claim to help them recover and to compensate them for the pain and upset caused.

Mrs L

Thanks for the work of your staff led by Maria. I would like to highlight the contribution of Nadya & Leona in these transactions. While Maria is often the one in the sunshine so to speak, it is through the background work performed by these two that allows this to happen.

I have been completely satisfied with help given by Helen and feel that my affairs are now in safe hands.
