$38.3 Million Verdict against McKesson Medication, LLC and Local Neurosurgeon

Partners Julie Braman Kane and Joseph Kalbac secured a $38.3 million verdict on behalf of their client, a former Miami Beach emergency room nurse who suffered a debilitating condition after undergoing surgery for a repair of a spinal fluid leak. The neurosurgeon injected the plaintiff’s intrathecal space with Methylene Blue, a drug product the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned was contraindicated for intraspinal injection. The warnings were eliminated from the operating room and thus unavailable to the surgeon. In 2009, a Miami-Dade jury found the defendants, McKesson Medication, LLC and the local neurosurgeon, negligent and at fault for damages.

Drug Injury Lawyers Handling Nationwide Pharmaceutical Litigation

Drug manufacturers must exercise reasonable care in the labeling, manufacturing conditions and dissemination of vital dangerous medications information to medical doctors and pharmacists concerning the risks of their products. Serious incidents can occur as the result of taking an improperly manufactured drug or a medication that causes serious adverse reactions. Common drug injuries can range from physical disabilities, organ failure and birth defects to even wrongful death.

There have been numerous reports of defective medications, including COX-2 inhibitors, erectile dysfunction drugs, osteoporosis treatments, psychiatric drugs and cholesterol medicines. The list of dangerous and defective drugs is extensive, and includes some medications that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recalled, as well as others that doctors still prescribe.

We have received numerous drug lawsuit verdicts and settlements for clients affected by medical negligence. Medical malpractice lawyers Joseph J. Kalbac, Jr. and Julie Braman Kane represented a nurse who sustained a serious injury after undergoing spinal surgery. The neurosurgeon injected her with Methylene Blue, even though the FDA warned against using this product for this particular operation. However, the warnings were removed from the operating area, and the doctor was not aware of these potential health risks associated with this type of medication. We filed suit against the neurosurgeon and McKesson Medication, LLC. A jury found them at fault and awarded our client a $38.3 million verdict.
