Allergan, the maker of Botox, was just slapped with a $15 million jury verdict for negligence after causing years of pain in a woman after Botox injections.
After a 12 hour deliberation, Oklahoma gynecologist and obstetrician Dr. Sharla Helton was awarded the verdict. Dr. Helton blames many health problems and the loss of her job on the Botox injections she received in 2006. These health problems include pain, eyesight problems, and difficulty breathing.
Other product liability cases involving the wrinkle-reducing injection Botox are in the court system right now. Some patients who received Botox injections have experienced a wide range of side-effects, including decrease in vision, allergic reactions, and muscle weakness. The most serious side effect is the inability to swallow, which can lead to an inability to eat or even breathe.
