Wrongful death lawsuit filed by family of 3 Doors Down guitarist

| Apr 2, 2018 | Wrongful Death |

According to a wrongful death lawsuit filed recently against a physician and an Alabama pharmacy, the guitarist for the rock band 3 Doors Down died due to the pharmacy’s and physician’s actions.

The physician reportedly gave opioid prescriptions to the guitarist for several years, without performing a risk assessment or monitoring him. The physician is also facing federal criminal charges. Part of that case includes the texts the guitarist sent to the doctor asking for prescriptions.

According to the lawsuit, the guitarist was prescribed 178 drugs, including opioids, between 2006 and winter of 2012 and another 88 prescriptions from 2014 until Aug. 18, 2016. He died on Aug. 20, 2016, in a Wisconsin hotel hallway. He was there performing in a benefit concert for the military. He had a fentanyl patch on and his guitar case was next to him. The medical examiner listed the cause of death as an overdose of hydrocodone, fentanyl and alprazolam.

The pharmacy is alleged to have filled the prescriptions for opioids and other drugs even though they thought the guitarist was addicted. The lawsuit states that the pharmacy should have let the Alabama Board of Pharmacy and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) know about their suspicions.

The guitarist’s family members filed the wrongful death suit. If you have lost a loved one due to another’s actions, you do have recourse available. An experienced attorney can help you learn more about the legal options that may be at your disposal. It’s important to hold those who are responsible for your loved one’s death accountable for their actions.
