Hospital negligence can lead to dangerous medication errors

Many Illinois residents rely on medications to keep them healthy. The right dosage and/or medication is paramount in ensuring that patients receive the maximum benefit from a medication without suffering any adverse side effects. Medication errors caused by hospital negligence could literally put a patient's life in jeopardy.

Former Chicago Hospital CEO Pleads Guilty to Perjury

Peter Rogan is finally doing the jail time he owes for crimes committed. He headed Edgewater Hospital during the time a massive cardiology scheme was carried out by Dr. Andrew Cubria. With the assent of the administration, Dr. Cubria performed hundreds of unnecessary catheterizations, one of which caused the death of our firm's client, Albert Okaro. The hospital administration paid Dr. Cubria for his unnecessary procedures that allowed the hospital to generate millions of fraudulent billings to Medicare and insurers.

Tardive Dyskinesia Lawsuit Prosecution

Pfaff, Gill & Ports, Ltd. is prosecuting a case against a Chicago-area doctor who continued to prescribe Reglan (metoclopramide) to a patient for more than four years. Unfortunately, our client developed tardive dyskinesia and dystonia due to the prolonged Reglan use, which has totally disabled him from working and his family's everyday life. The doctor failed to inform our client that the drug should not be taken for more than 12 weeks and that doing so results in a significant risk of tardive dyskinesia, a disabling movement disorder.

Delivery mistakes can determine the course of a child's life

A great deal of debate exists between the concepts of nature vs. nurture when it comes to the kind of adult a child will become. One event that can forever shape the adult a child will become is the birthing process. If the medical staff attending to the mother and newborn makes delivery mistakes, the course of that child's life is altered from its first moments.
