Jamie Boock obtains a $525,000 jury verdict for medical malpractice claim

On August 1, 2013 after a four day jury trial, Jamie Boock obtained a jury verdict in the amount of $525,000 for their client in a medical malpractice case filed in Franklin County, Missouri.  The plaintiff was a woman who suffered from Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis as a result of an allergic reaction to the drug Lamictal.  Plaintiff suffered a severe reaction in which she lost 98% of her skin and was hospitalized for over three weeks.

Rossiter & Boock alleged that plaintiff’s primary care provider was negligent because she should have told plaintiff to stop taking Lamictal when plaintiff called in complaining of a rash.  Plaintiff was not taken off Lamictal until ten days after she first complained of the rash, and as a result, she suffered the severe drug reaction.  The defendant denied all liability and also claimed that there was no proof that the Lamictal caused plaintiff’s injuries.

After a four day trial and seven hours of deliberation, the jury returned a verdict in favor of plaintiff in the amount of $525,000.
