HAMLIN – Lois Adams says a pharmacist at Rite Aid's Branchland location mixed up her medications, causing her serious personal injuries.
Attorney Jeffrey S. Bowen of West Hamlin filed her personal injury suit July 19 in Lincoln Circuit Court.
Adams claims she was prescribed medications Avelox 400 MG and Prednisone 20 MG on Aug. 2, 2011, and directed to take one Avelox per day and three Prednisone per day.
A pharmacist is believed to have negligently placed the pills in wrong containers, resulting in Adams reversing dosages.
Adams seeks jury awards for damages to include pain and suffering; sorrow; mental anguish and solace; medical care, treatment and hospitalization; lost wages and benefits; past and reasonably certain future medical expenses; punitive damages; such other damages permitted by law; and litigation costs.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Jay M. Hoke.
