Discovering How Medication Errors Occur

Many of the most important advances in medicine have been in the development of prescription drugs, but drugs available today are more powerful than ever before — with more potentially devastating side effects. People given the wrong drug, given an overdose or subjected to another type of medication error may suffer serious, permanent injury.

If you or a family member suspects a serious medication or pharmacy error in the Chicago metro, western suburbs or surrounding area of Illinois, the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid has experienced attorneys who can provide legal counsel and action.

Please call 630-848-9294 or contact our lawyers online. We understand that you may not know precisely what happened after a suspected prescription drug error, and we stand ready to investigate and take action for you.

Pursuing Maximum Compensation for Mistakes by Doctors and Pharmacists

Our law firm has experience dealing with the human impact of inherently dangerous prescription medications and medical devices such as morphine pain pumps — those that prove to be defective or prove to have unacceptable risk factors. In addition, our medication error lawyers are prepared to represent you as a victim of:

  • A doctor or other medical professional's failure to account for known allergies or interactions between multiple drugs
  • Administration of an overdose at a clinic or in the hospital — or being prescribed an excessive amount of a prescription medication
  • Negligence by a pharmacist or pharmacy tech who misreads your prescription, mistakenly supplies the wrong medication, or commits a labeling error leading to improper dosage

You have a right to expect that all due care has been exercised in prescribing medication and providing it to you — but the reality is that mistakes occur with alarming frequency. Outcomes can be tragic, ranging from extreme reactions to wrongful death.
