Medication Errors

A Record of Success in Medication Error Cases

Medication is a tool. Like any tool, it must be used properly. Unfortunately, if used improperly, it can cause serious personal injury or even wrongful death. For more than 30 years, the lawyers of Pavalon & Gifford have helped medication error victims in Chicago, Illinois, and throughout the country. We have built a national reputation for our ability to take on these complex cases.

We Want To Get Positive Results for You

Our law firm is ready to make a commitment to you. We will make the commitment to put forth every effort in pursuit of fair compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages that resulted from a medication error.

You can turn to our attorneys to handle your claim involving medication errors that took place in a hospital or other medical facility. We can address issues involving nervous system damage caused by improperly prescribed painkillers. We can work on cases involving hearing loss or kidney damage caused by inappropriate antibiotics prescriptions. No matter what type of medication was prescribed and what type of injury resulted, we can help.

In the hospital setting, high-powered medications are used. Medical staff have a system of checks and balances in place to prevent errors involving those medications. That system can fail. Doctors may order improper dosages. Nurses may administer the medication inappropriately.

The medications prescribed for use outside of the hospital tend to be less powerful. Still, hazards exist. Doctors can miss a prior history of allergic reactions. They may write the wrong prescription. Pharmacies can put the wrong pills in the bottle. The array of errors that can be made seems endless. We can handle them all.

Multimillion-Dollar Results in Medication Error Cases

Our long list of noteworthy cases includes one of the largest medical malpractice settlements in the history of the state. A hospital physician made a profound medication error by providing a near-fatal drug overdose of an extremely powerful narcotic. This caused cardiac arrest and coma to our client. We were able to obtain a settlement of more than $20 million for the victim.
