Lake County Prescription Errors Attorney
Lake County Medication and Prescription Error Lawyers
A medication error can do permanent damage, cause significant injury, worsen an illness or even result in a wrongful death. It can happen at the pharmacy counter, in the doctor's office, in the emergency room or on the operating table, and can be the result of doctor, pharmacist or anesthesiologist error. Every year, people across Illinois suffer as a result of a medication error that causes serious harm.
In Lake County and surrounding communities, our attorneys at Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., have represented the interests of clients who have suffered due to medical malpractice and healthcare errors. We build a case designed to recover compensation for you and your family.
Serious Injury and Illness From Medication Errors
Medication provides injured and sick patients relief when properly prescribed and used. It dulls the pain of injury or surgery. It masks symptoms of illness. It can heal and cure when used correctly, but it also has the potential to be toxic or lethal if used incorrectly.
Laws limit control of medications to doctors and medical professionals specifically because malpractice or misuse of drugs can be so devastating. You should consult with a lawyer when you have suffered or you have lost a loved one due to a medication or prescription error, such as:
- Anesthesia errors
- Improper dosage
- Harmful drug interactions
- Allergic reactions
- Unexpected side effects
Rather than healing and helping individuals, a prescription error can cause permanent damage, disability or death. Not only does this kind of malpractice cause its own injury, it often leaves the original problem untreated.
Our law firm works with clients throughout the Lake County area and aggressively pursues full and fair compensation to pay for treatment, long-term care, lost wages and other damages associated with malpractice.
