Doctors carry a significant responsibility when they prescribe a medication. There is a lot more to consider beyond the drug‘s ability to treat a given condition. The possibility of an allergic reaction, cross-reactions with other drugs the patient may be taking, improper dosage and many other factors come into play in these situations.
Failure to consider any of these factors can result in extremely serious health issues for the patient and can sometimes be fatal. If you or someone you love has been injured or died because of a medication error, it is important that you seek the advice of an experienced Chicago medical malpractice lawyer immediately.
Thousands of people are injured and hundreds of people die each year in the United States as a result of medication errors. The Chicago medication error attorneys at The Horwitz Law Group have helped countless clients who have suffered due to the negligence of a medical professional or pharmacist.
There are many other people who can commit medication errors other than doctors. Nurses who administer the medication and pharmacists who fill the prescriptions can also make mistakes that jeopardize patients’ health.

When you hire our firm, we will fully investigate the errors in your case to determine who committed them and who had the opportunity to stop them. We will identify all negligent parties and seek compensation from all of them.
