Mingo Co. man blames physicians, pharmacy for wife’s death
WILLIAMSON – A man is suing Comprehensive Neurology Inc. after he claims it is responsible for the death of his wife.
Dr. Iraj Derakhshan and Riverside Pharmacy were also named as defendants in the suit.
Warren L. Brown claims Riverside illegally filled prescriptions for hydrocodone and alprazolan on March 19, 2015, for Victoria Brown. He claims Derakhshan regularly engaged in a pattern and practice of writing prescriptions for controlled substances for non-medical purposes, which violates West Virginia code.
Victoria Brown sought treatment from the defendants and Derakhshan merely wrote prescriptions for controlled substances for non-medical purposes and with no meaningful examination of his patient, according to the suit.
Warren Brown claims the defendants’ actions caused Victoria Brown’s death.
Warren Brown is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. He is being represented by Joseph H. Spano Jr.
