Wrong Medications Cause Cancer-like Symptoms

$55,000

Litigation Type - Medication Errors

Client Injury - Cancer-like Symptoms, Mental Anguish

Our client, a 52 year-old woman, was diagnosed with a thyroid condition and prescribed medication by her treating physician. She filled her prescription at her local pharmacy but the pharmacy erroneously gave her a cancer drug rather than the thyroid medication.  She suffered from symptoms as a result of not taking her prescribed thyroid medication and also suffered pain and a multitude of additional symptoms as a result of taking the cancer drug. Of significant importance, our client suffered mental anguish because she had experienced similar cancer-like symptoms years earlier when she was treated for ovarian cancer.

Jim Carey filed a claim for our client against the pharmacy that incorrectly filled her prescription.  The claim was settled for $55,000.
