A jury awarded $15 million to an Oklahoma City doctor who suffered botulism poisoning after using the popular anti-wrinkle drug Botox. The Oklahoma jury found that Allergan Inc., the maker of Botox Cosmetic, was negligent. The jury did not award any punitive damages in the case. The doctor complained of severe side effects after getting injections of 50 units of Botox Cosmetic on July 14, 2006. It was her fifth treatment for wrinkles. She eventually had to sell her medical practice and step down as medical director of Lakeside Women’s Hospital in Oklahoma City because of pain and weakness. Ray Chester, a lawyer from Austin, Texas, represented the Plaintiff and did a very good job.
