Chicago Pharmaceutical Malpractice Attorneys

Representing Illinois Victims of Pharmaceutical Malpractice

Pharmaceutical errors can result in a number of medical complications, from allergic reactions to dangerous drug interactions to delayed treatment of the underlying medical condition. At Cogan & Power, P.C., our Chicago pharmaceutical error attorneys have seen too often the dire consequences of medication errors. We recently recovered $5.582 million for a young girl who suffered permanent brain injury as a result of an overdose of 3% sodium chloride and $3.7 Million for the surviving family of a 38-year-old woman who suffered liver failure from excessive doses of extra-strength Vicodin. In addition, we took steps to ensure that those errors would not recur.

Medication Errors

Medication errors are one of the most common types of medical malpractice, with more than 1.5 million people injured each year as a result of errors made in prescribing, administering and monitoring prescription drugs and other medications, according to a study by the Institute of Medicine. Not only do medication errors cause injuries and even death, but they also cost an estimated additional $3.5 billion in medical expenses each year. Medication errors can involve prescription drugs, over-the-counter products, vitamins, and herbal supplements, and can also include contamination and compounding errors.

Medication errors can occur at any stage of a patients medical treatment and can be committed by a variety of medical professionals, including:

  • A doctor or nurse practitioner prescribing the wrong medication
  • Pharmacists filling a prescription with the wrong medication
  • Doctors or nurses making errors while administering the drug
  • Doctors and nurses failing to monitor the patient’s response to the medication

Drug Interactions

Drug interactions are another type of pharmaceutical error that can cause serious medical complications. If a doctor fails to ask what other drugs a patient is taking or fails to document all other medications, medical malpractice may be involved. Drug interactions can also occur as a result of diagnostic errors, the failure to prescribe the correct medication, or the failure to fill the prescription correctly.

Adverse Drug Reactions

Pharmaceutical errors can also result in adverse drug reactions. Doctors, pharmacists and drug manufacturers have an obligation to ensure that the drugs they deliver to patients are safe. If a patient is injured as a result of an adverse drug reaction caused by the negligence of a doctor, nurse or other medical professional, he or she may be entitled to compensation for the injuries suffered through a medical malpractice lawsuit.
