Chicago Pharmaceutical Error Attorneys

Doctors prescribe medicine to heal illnesses or alleviate symptoms. Sometimes, however, human error in prescribing drugs and getting them to the patient can result in further illness, symptoms, or even death. Whether patients receive the wrong medicine, the wrong dose of the right medicine, or drugs that interact with each other in dangerous ways, pharmaceutical errors can have dangerous consequences.

Doctors and pharmacists have a duty to take the utmost care in prescribing and providing drugs to patients. When they fail to take this care, they betray the trust patients have in them and put patients at serious risk. At Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC, we believe negligent doctors and pharmacists should pay for the harm they cause patients through pharmaceutical errors. If you or someone you love was hurt by a pharmaceutical error, we can help you hold the party responsible financially accountable.

Pharmaceutical Errors by Doctors and Pharmacists

The process of receiving a medication starts with a doctor’s prescription. It is up to doctors to know which drugs are appropriate for the patient’s condition and how those drugs might interact with others the patient is taking. Here are some of the dangerous mistakes doctors can make in prescribing medications:

  • Prescribing the wrong medication for the patient’s condition
  • Prescribing the wrong dosage for the patient
  • Prescribing a medication to which the patient has reported an allergy
  • Prescribing a medication with a dangerous reaction to other drugs the patient is taking

As the people handling these drugs, pharmacists have many opportunities to put patients in danger if they are not careful. Here are some of the mistakes pharmacists can make in getting patients their medicine:

  • Filling the wrong drug
  • Filling the wrong dosage
  • Giving the patient another person’s prescription
  • Mixing the drug incorrectly
  • Providing the patient with incorrect usage instructions

Errors like these can put patients at risk of serious complications, or at the very least fail to better their condition. If your doctor or pharmacist committed such an error, you may be able to hold them responsible for the harm they’ve caused you.

Thank you so much for your diligent, professional, and thorough handling of my car accident settlement. You were beyond helpful, accommodating, and supportive during the process. You patiently explained, in detail, the procedures that would take place during the course of the claim. You continually updated me as progress was made and gave me in-depth details. Being that I was a novice to this type of practice, you advised me as to what was realistic, yet fair, as far as when, how, and monetarily the claim would be settled. When an offer was made, you advised me accordingly, and counter-offered for what you believed to be a reasonable and objective settlement. Beyond that, you also worked determinedly to reduce my medical claims and had great success. An attorney friend of mine went as far to say that you “hit a home run” when you negotiated my settlement. I want you to know how much your guidance and attentiveness to my claim meant to me. I will definitely recommend you and your firm should any of my acquaintances need legal advice in the future.

Dear J.B. ,
I wanted to thank you, for the job you did on my case. You were not only an excellent lawyer, you were a friend along the way as well. You always promptly called me, addressing my questions and concerns. As far as my settlement goes, I couldn’t have expected more then you got for me. Many lawyers “brag” , about the amount of settlements they get for their clients, on their T.V. commercials . You, got me more then these lawyers “brag” about. Thank you for getting me such a strong settlement, and being a friend as well, along the way. I’d be more then happy to talk to anyone who would like to know , what a fine attorney you are. Thank you for being there for me. Sincerely,

- J.F.
