Man Awarded $212 after Botox treatments

Another blog entry from Dr. Robert Brueck MD, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Fort Myers.
He reports periodically on matters pertaining to health and plastic surgery.

WOW $212 MILLION

Now that’s a lot of money - a whole lot of money. You knew it was just a matter of time before someone would sue and potentially open the flood gates of litigation concerning Botox.

The lawyers for 67 years Douglas Ray Jr. claimed Botox caused severe brain damage to their client. Mr. Ray had received Botox treatments for hand tremors and writers cramps. He claims that the Botox injections left him disabled almost totally, and have cost him 650,000 in medical bills. Allergan says Mr. Ray was apprised of the potential risks. Mr. Ray was diagnosed with CADASIL (it’s a long one- Cerebral autosomal dominant Arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy - I won’t even begin to explain it!) This is a genetic stroke condition Mr. Ray inherited long before he received Botox. So here we go again - the chicken and the egg. Allergan is considering an appeal, at $212 million, I think I would too.

Heard about this...seems like everything has a weak point...and for botox it was this man, but botox still remains the best anti-aging treatment.
