We have gotten calls recently form clients who have suffered the painful effects of Stevens Johnson Syndrome caused by a medication. SJS syndrome produces painful blisters and skin rashes that can be very painful. Skin can actually start peeling off.
In some cases, a medication error is the cause of SJS. For example, someone can be allergic to a type of medicine and while they tell the doctor or the nurse in the hospital, the patient is given the medication anyway because of a mix up.
If you or a loved one has suffered from Stevens Johnson Syndrome, you should speak with us at 1-1-800-299-4878. We can help you find out more about whether there was medical malpractice involved.
