Pharmaceutical injuries

You can be compensated for unexpected pharmaceutical injuries. Pharmaceutical injuries insurance covers bodily injuries resulting from the use of medication marketed or supplied for consumption in Finland. Pharmaceutical injuries are not the same thing as adverse drug reactions.

The website of the Finnish Mutual Insurance Company for Pharmaceutical Injury Indemnities describes what types of injuries are compensated and how you can seek compensation. The site also describes what type of compensation is paid and how to fill in the notice of pharmaceutical injury form.

Patient ombudsmen help with pharmaceutical injury issues, when necessary. If you need help or advice, contact your local patient ombudsman. Each health care unit has a designated patient ombudsman. Their contact information is available from the health care unit.
