The Help You Deserve When Harmed by Defective Drugs

In recent years, public awareness has increased substantially regarding how dangerous some prescription and over-the-counter medications can be. However, we never know what the next recalled drug will be and how severe the risk is, and people make choices every day that attempt to balance health benefits and risks.

If you have been harmed and suspect that a dangerous or defective medication may be the cause, the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid can help. Our attorneys have decades of experience with complex personal injury matters. We serve clients in Naperville, the western suburbs and other Illinois cities.

Have you lost a family member or suffered debilitating injury or illness — such as stroke, heart attack or development of a life-threatening disease — and come to believe that a defective drug may be the cause? Please call 630-848-9294 or email our respected injury lawyers to discuss your legal options, free of charge.

Representing Victims of One-Time Medication Errors and Pharmaceutical Company Negligence

Our experience, knowledge and capabilities equip us well to counsel and represent:

  • Families grieving a tragic infant or child death caused by use of a cold and cough medicine containing dextromethorphan or carbinoxamine, including specific products marketed under the Tylenol, Dimetapp, Robitussin and Triaminic brand names
  • Victims and surviving family members severely harmed by prescription and over-the-counter diet drugs, including fen-phen and drugs containing ephedra or pseudoephedrine
  • People seeking damages for severe injury and wrongful death related to defective medical devices such as morphine pain pumps and pacemakers

When a potent drug is involved, a seemingly simple medication prescription error can cause serious harm. A decimal point written in the wrong place on a prescription pad can be life-threatening. A pharmacist filling a prescription incorrectly can have dangerous consequences.

Taking legal action against a pharmaceutical company is an intimidating prospect for nonlawyers and inexperienced attorneys. However, our firm has led or played a role in successful product liability lawsuits against many major corporations, and our clients can depend on our determination to build their case for trial if a fair settlement cannot be obtained.

Targeting Maximum Compensation for You and Positive Social Impact

Our Illinois law firm knows how to dig deep to gather the evidence we need to build our case. Our efforts have led not only to compensation for the victim, but to broader actions like removing from pharmacy shelves problematic cold medicines targeted at infants, thus preventing others from suffering the same harm as our clients.

Please contact our defective drugs lawyers to discuss your potential case, free of charge. We handle our defective medication cases on a contingency basis, charging no fees unless you win compensation.
