Dosage Error Leads to Stroke

Medical Malpractice Settlement for Several Hundred Thousand Dollars


Our elderly client developed atrial fibrillation--an irregular, often rapid heart rate. Our client's doctor started her on Coumadin to prevent blood clots and coagulation.

Several years into her Coumadin treatment, our client presented to her doctor's office and a low INR, or coagulation measurement, was obtained. The doctor confused the amount of Coumadin our client was taking and accidentally decreased our client's Coumadin dosage rather than increasing it.

Two days later, our client suffered a stroke that resulted in neurologic defects. Our lawyers alleged that the doctor's Coumadin error led directly to our client's stroke. Rosen Louik & Perry settled this case for several hundred thousand dollars.
