$2,000,000 Settlement for Improper Prescription of Lovenox to 70-Year Old
Following a laminectomy, Anthony, then in his 70s, was prescribed Lovenox, a blood thinner. The hospital staff prescribed the Lovenox too soon after the surgery that resulted in an epidural hematoma that caused neurologic damage and contributed to his death.
Stephen Raynes deposed the treating surgeon who agreed that Lovenox should not have been prescribed. With liability virtually admitted, Mr. Raynes focused on demonstrating how this error affected Anthony’s life. The case settled for $2,000,000.
