Medication Error Lawsuit Settles

Comments Off

On July 26, 2006, our firm successfully concluded a case which involved both a medication error and medical malpractice. Our client was placed on Coumadin, a blood thinner, due to a rare clotting factor in her blood. Her doctor erred by taking her off the medication and she had a life-altering stroke, permanently disabling her.

On April 29, 2005 Jane Doe sustained a massive stroke to the brain stem. She survived but cannot walk, talk, feed herself or even swallow. She is bedridden and requires 24 hour care. The case was settled for a confidential amount with a combination of lifetime monthly payments and cash.

Many preventable medication errors injury patients every year. Our law firm handles cases involving medical malpractice and medication errors or prescription errors.
