A woman outside the state of California died after allegedly being prescribed multiple medications that did not follow the manufacturer’s recommendations. Her son is pursuing a medical malpractice claim on her behalf both against the prescribing doctor as well as the pain clinic that he worked for. His suit is seeking compensation on both his and his mother’s behalf.
The woman first went to the pain clinic in March 2012, where she met with the doctor in question and reported issues with pain. After that initial visit, her son claims that she was prescribed 13 medications, including highly addictive painkillers like OxyContin. In total, she was prescribed over 900 pills from her various medications.
