$16.02 Million Prescription Drug Misfill by Pharmacy Resulting in Coma and Brain Injury to Child

Rock Hill, SC — Our attorneys tried this pharmacy misfill case in front of a jury to receive an award of $15 million actual and punitive damages for a brain-injured child and $1.02 million for her parents. The young child was given a diabetic medication instead of the Ritalin she was supposed to receive for ADHD. She lapsed into a coma and suffered brain damage affecting her ability to learn. The verdict was upheld on appeal to the SC Court of Appeals (Hundley v. Rite-Aid, 529 S.E.2d 45), and thereafter settled while pending before the South Carolina Supreme Court.
