Lincoln Park Personal Injury Attorneys

If you have suffered an injury after taking a dangerous drug, it’s important to understand your options. Drug manufacturers, pharmacists, and doctors can be held legally liable for any medicine they produce, prescribe or fill that harms the patient. If you have suffered an injury caused by the negligent actions of another and received the wrong medication, the wrong dosage or a bad drug, you have the legal right to seek financial compensation for your damages. The bad drug injury attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC have represented thousands of clients who experience dangerous side effects and negative medication interactions from medicines that were approved by the FDA.

Before most to medications are made available in the United States medical marketplace, the manufacturer goes through a rigorous multi-stage approval process. During the development stages, a medication enters the testing process, and the manufacturer submits information in a detailed application for approval.

However, some pharmaceutical companies have sidestepped the process to bring their new medication quickly to the marketplace in the hopes of generating profits before its effectiveness in treating patients has been scientifically determined. Other companies fail to adequately test their products during a fast-track approval process on a large enough population before making the drug readily available only to find out its fatalistic design after it has been given to a large group of patients.

Dangerous Drugs

In 2010, Yale University conducted a study revealing that a third of all medications approved by the Food and Drug Administration might pose a significant safety risk and serious health concerns to consumers. This is a serious problem because many of these drugs that were once considered safe might have a potentially devastating effect on patients who suffer drug interactions, organ damage or death.

However, handling a medical malpractice or bad drug case without legal representation can be challenging because drug manufacturers employ highly skilled law firms to fight back against victims pursuing a dangerous drug claim. A reputable defective medication lawyer can assist victims and their loved ones who were injured or died from a bad drug or faulty medical device that could involve:

  • Bladder cancer
  • Birth control IUD migration
  • Hip replacement
  • Knee replacements
  • Intestinal bleeding
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Stroke
  • Cerebral hemorrhage
  • Uterine cancer
  • Wrongful death
Dangerous and Defective Medications

Consumers believe that if the FDA approved the medication, it must be safe and effective in all patients. However, this belief is simply not true. The most common drugs that were routinely pulled from the medical marketplace through a voluntary or FDA recall include antidepressants, SSRI, low testosterone therapy medicines, Lipitor, Lexapro, Invokana, Celexa, Accutane, Actos, Paxil, Tylenol, Zoloft, Zofran, Xarelto, and Yasmin.

If the pharmaceutical manufacturer failed to test the medication properly or neglected to adequately label or warn that the product is responsible for causing injuries or death, they could be held legally liable under product liability laws. A skilled attorney will file a defective product liability lawsuit to seek claims on behalf of their client who was either harmed or killed as a result of using the drug.

However, our Lincoln Park neighborhood law firm will file a lawsuit against every individual or entity responsible for bringing the drug to market or prescribing the medication and filling the prescription. Doctors can be held legally liable for writing out a prescription that is known to cause devastating consequences. The pharmacy and pharmacist can also be held legally responsible for their failure to fill the prescription properly at the correct dosage or by the doctor’s orders. These cases are built on medical malpractice.

About Chicago’s Lincoln Park Neighborhood

Lincoln Park is located on Chicago’s Northside. The community is known for its diverse entertainment, dining, and nightlife, and renowned for its Steppenwolf Theatre Company and Second City Comedy Club. The boundaries of Lincoln Park extend to Lake Michigan to the east, North Avenue to the south, the Chicago River to the west, and Diversey Parkway to the north.

The area was first established in 1824 when the U.S. Army constructed a small post at Armitage and Clybourn Avenue. Chicago annexed the Lakeview Township area that included Lincoln Park in 1889, more than twenty years after Lincoln Park Zoo opened its doors to the public. Lincoln Park thrived until the Great Depression when the area fell into disrepair. By 1954, a concerned neighborhood founded the Lincoln Park Conservation Association to stop the deterioration of homes in the community.

The Lincoln Park community is made up of neighborhoods including West DePaul, RANCH Triangle, Park West, Chef, Oldtown Triangle, Mid-North, Wrightwood Neighbors, and Lincoln Central. Educational opportunities in the neighborhood include the Francis W. Parker School, Lincoln Park High School, and DePaul University. The Chicago Public Schools system operates primary and secondary schools in the community. The affluent single-family homes of Lincoln Park are priced between $1 million and $10 million or more.

Commuters have access to Chicagoland through the Chicago Transportation Authority on the Purple, Brown and Red Lines, the CTA bus service, or by car on the Kennedy Expressway or Lake Shore Drive.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
