Medication Malpractice Lawyer

Drug interactions can have serious negative side effects. If a patient takes two or more medications at the same time, the drug interactions could lead to an unexpected and harmful result, such as inefficacy of the medications, illness or death. Because the characteristics of drugs are different and because each person responds to a medication differently, the effects of harmful drug interactions can vary wildly.

    Possible Causes of Drug Interactions

    Drug interactions can occur for a number of reasons but some of the more common causes of harmful drug interactions include:

    • Failure to ask what other drugs a patient is taking
    • Failure to document other medications the patient is taking
    • Misdiagnosis

    Certain drugs are known to cause harmful drug interactions if they are taken in conjunction with another medication. The failure to ask what other drugs the patient is currently taking or to properly document the other drugs that the patient is taking can result in a harmful drug interaction if the patient is then given a conflicting medication. Diagnostic errors frequently lead to harmful drug interactions because the patient may be prescribed a medication that conflicts with the underlying medical condition and/or other medications used to treat that medical condition.

    Can You Sue for Misdiagnosis of Stroke?

    In Illinois, a misdiagnosis of stroke and other medical conditions may be considered medical negligence and grounds for a lawsuit against the patient’s physician. Patients who have serious health conditions and are misdiagnosed are prevented from getting the proper medical treatments they need to improve. As a result, these patients can face worsening health conditions that lead to permanent injuries, disabilities, and death.
