Medication Errors

A crucial part of most treatments for serious illnesses is medication. Even if a medical provider gets everything else right — the diagnosis, the overall treatment plan, the need for surgery and so on — catastrophic damage can result if a medication-related error occurs.

At The Jasmer Law Firm of Chicago, we have handled medical malpractice and product liability claims relating to medication errors for almost 15 years . We can provide tenacious and knowledgeable legal help in a broad range of situations, including injuries resulting from:

  • Doctor, nurse and pharmacist errors, and errors committed by other health care providers
  • Defective medical devices
  • Defective drugs

For tough, innovative and skilled medical malpractice legal help in Illinois, contact lawyer David S. Jasmer of The Jasmer Law Firm. Call 312-386-7011 or 866-920-6021.


An important component to any medication error claim is the use of qualified medical experts. We have assembled a team of on-staff medical experts, many of whom are Harvard trained. These medical experts are available to 1) review prospective cases, and 2) provide crucial and decisive testimony in trial.

We are highly knowledgeable regarding a broad range of drugs involved in medication errors, including:

  • Yasmin/Yaz
  • Levaquin
  • Reglan
  • Paxil (especially relating to birth defects)
  • Mirapex
  • Chantix
  • Oxycontin
  • Raptiva
  • Duragesic Fentanyl
  • Avandia
  • Digitek digoxin (some tablets are defective)
  • Digitalis and digitalis toxicity
  • Trasylol

Did a pharmacist misread a doctor's prescription, leading to an overdose or the dispensing of the wrong drug? Did a nurse, anesthesiologist or other medical care provider misread a dosage amount? Do you have reason to suspect that you received the right medication but that there was something wrong with it? We can help. For a no-charge consultation, contact our firm.
