Dosage Error By Pharmacy Causes Death Of 83 Year Old

$432,000 Recovery

Estate of John K. v. National Pharmacy Chain
Union County, Georgia
Attorney for Plaintiff: Robert M. Roselli

Roselli & Associates represented Mrs. K, the widow of an eighty-three year old Georgia man who was diagnosed with gout and prescribed Colchicine to relieve his foot swelling and pain. Mrs. K filled the prescription at a nationally known pharmacy where the pharmacist negligently gave incorrect instructions that called for taking the tablets every two minutes instead of every two hours. Sadly, Mr. K took the medication "as directed" and became gravely ill from the overdose, suffered a stroke and died shortly thereafter. A settlement for Mr. K’s grieving widow was reached with the pharmacy in excess of Georgia’s $350,000 cap on non-economic damages.

Like Florida, the state of Georgia has recently enacted unjust laws limiting compensation for victims and their families while protecting the state’s corporate and medical elite.

When Bob Roselli makes the decision to take your case, it is an expression of total commitment to injury victims and their families.
