Elkton Pharmacy Malpractice Settlement with Walmart

An Elkon lawyer representing the family of a Cecil County man who filed a pharmacy misfill lawsuit against Wal-Mart reports that the parties have reached settlement. The decedent allegedly received the wrong prescriptions intended for another patient from a Wal-Mart pharmacist and subsequently died.

The decedent (I hate naming names so I use the annoying term “decendent”) died in March 2007 at Union Hospital in Elkton, eight days after receiving the wrong prescription. His children brought a wrongful death and a survival action against Wal-Mart for the pharmacy misfill.
