You can get amounts from around £1000 to over £1m for a pharmacy negligence claim. The amounts awarded depend on the pain, suffering and any care needs.
You can also take into account any time off work and expenses incurred when the pharmacy negligence happened.
The higher amounts, such as the £1m figure, cover the very serious effects of pharmacy negligence. If someone’s blood thinners were negligently stopped by a pharmacy and they suffered a stroke, it could affect the rest of their lives. The claim could run into the millions for ongoing care requirements, housing adaptations and loss of future earnings.
Always keep copies of receipts, pay slips and bank accounts to show where you have suffered loss due to the pharmacy negligence.
