HOUSTON – Alleging an error in the refill of his topical
medication caused him to suffer breakouts, Houston resident Eric Williams has
filed a lawsuit.
Williams’s suit against CVS Pharmacy, Inc., filed Dec. 15 in
the Harris County 333rd District Court, claims that the retailer at 2828 Spears
Road in Houston last year gave Williams a dosage of Clindamycin Phos-Benzoyl with a strength greater than what his dermatologist had ordered.
Williams used the medicine to treat a mild case of
folliculitis. Per recent court documents, the plaintiff did not realize CVS’s
error as he applied the gel in accordance to his doctor’s instructions and what
was printed on the label for several days.
The complainant further asserts that the medication left him
with severe burns and lesions, insisting he did not in any way contribute to
A jury trial is requested.
Attorneys Ryan A. DeHoyos and Kevin J. Connolly of the law
firm DeHoyos & Connolly, PLLC in Houston are representing Williams.
