Antibiotics Cause Total Loss of Balance in Patient with Labrynthitis

The client complained of an imbalance problem and had symptoms of an earache, dizziness, nausea and vertigo. The doctor diagnosed the client as suffering from labrynthitis, which is an ear disorder that involves irritation and swelling of the inner ear, and prescribed an antiquated and outdated antibiotic. The antibiotic required frequent detailed assessment of the client's clinical condition. Visiting nurses and the home care pharmacy filling the prescriptions failed to appropriately follow the client, resulting in terrible side effects. The client was diagnosed with ototoxicity, which is damage to the ear specifically the cochlea, or auditory nerve and the vestibular system. The client lost all sense of balance as a result. Rosen Louik & Perry,Westmoreland County malpractice attorneys represented the client in court. A jury deliberated for three days before returning a verdict against the pharmacy in the amount of $975,000.00. The other defendants settled prior to verdict for $2,000,000.00.
