A unique type of insurance

There is a unique type of insurance available in Sweden for those who suffer from the adverse effects of pharmaceutical treatment. The Swedish Pharmaceutical Insurance covers anyone who is treated with prescribed medication or medication purchased from a legitimate dealer in Sweden. It also includes patients who receive medication at a hospital, or who suffer adverse reactions or side effects due to participation in clinical trials that are covered by the insurance.

The quickest and simplest way to receive compensation in the event of medication-related injury is to present your case to the Swedish Pharmaceutical Insurer. You can also take your case to court, but the burden of proof may be greater.
