Pharmacist compensation claims

There are lots of reasons why people claim against pharmacists or health and beauty stores, including prescription error claims, product liability claims, slips and trips, objects falling from shelves and adverse reactions to drugs, make-up or other substances. When these incidents occur due to the negligence of the health and beauty store, and this leads to a personal injury, the victim can make a claim for compensation, recovering their losses and being compensated for their pain and suffering.

Health and beauty claims

Although health and beauty stores offer a huge range of treatments and therapies, including drugs and perfumes that are expected to have a physical effect on their customers, they still have the same duty of care towards the public as any other business. This means that if the products they sell result in injuries, or if they fail to maintain a safe environment for the public, they can find themselves facing health and beauty compensation claims.

Staff in pharmacists or health and beauty stores may need specialist training if they are to protect the safety of the public, and management systems, as well as checks and balances, will be required to ensure they meet this duty. Poor cleaning can also lead to injury claims against health and beauty stores. While it may seem like other risk factors pose a more significant danger in these retailers, slip and trip accident claims against pharmacists are quite common. Spilled shampoo or perfume, improper cleaning and obstructions in walkways can pose a serious risk to the public and lead to health and beauty accident claims.

Health and beauty and pharmacist claims

If you have suffered an injury in a pharmacy or health and beauty accident, you may have the right to claim compensation. The following tops could help you succeed in your compensation claim:

–          Collect evidence

This could be proof of the prescription error, photographs of the scene your accident occurred at, or statements from witnesses who can corroborate your story.

–          Report the accident

You should report the accident to the store it happened in and ensure it is recorded in the business’ accident book.

–          See a doctor

You will not be able to prove that you suffered personal injuries in the pharmacist accident unless you see a doctor.

–          Record your losses

Keep a record of any losses you sustained to support your health and beauty accident claim, such as lost wages and medical bills.
