13 Sep Virginia: Medical Malpractice – a Lawyer’s Settlement
On September 13, 2011, Mr. Waterman settled without having to file suit a medical malpractice claim against a Wal-Mart Pharmacy in Williamsburg, Virginia. It was a clear case of liability for the pharmacist dispensing 10 times the strength of a medication prescribed by a neurologist in Newport News, Virginia.
The over-medication immediately caused serious adverse effects on the patient from Williamsburg, Virginia, who had to miss work for a week. Fortunately, like most mis-prescription cases of medical malpractice, this one caused no permanent disability.
