Prince's family is suing IL hospital and Walgreens as well, report says

Share

(Undated) - A new lawsuit is questioning whether IL hospital and rescue workers did enough to try to prevent a second overdose that killed superstar singer Prince.

They argue that his death was a "direct and proximate cause" of the hospital failing to recognise and treat the overdose, in addition to failing to investigate the cause and provide appropriate counselling. He was immediately taken to a nearby hospital where he was administered with Narcan, a medication used to reverse the effects of the drug.

According to investigative records, Prince suffered an overdose during a flight home from a concert in Atlanta on April 15, 2016. The suit alleges his death was a direct result of the inadequate care he received in IL the previous week.

Carver County Attornery Mark Metz gave a press conference on Thursday releasing the results of the investigation, stating "charging decision must be made on legal merits", and not just on celebrity status, eventually announcing that he "will not file any criminal charges" based on a lack of evidence.

Prince's family are also suing the pharmacy chain Walgreens, for allegedly dispensing narcotics "for an invalid medical goal and failing to conduct the appropriate drug utilisation review".

Both Walgreens and the hospital parent company declined comment. Prosecutors believe that Prince likely overdosed the first time he was admitted to hospital in April 2016 on what he believed to be prescription opioids like Vicodin, but were actually black market versions containing the more harmful fentanyl.

At the medical center, Prince refused medical tests but was asked what drugs he took. Authorities have stated that they don't believe that Prince or anyone around him knew that he was consuming anything other than Vicodin, and they have been unable to identify who provided the deadly drug to the performer. Before leaving, a pharmacist at the hospital allegedly confirmed that the pill Prince had in his possession was Vicodin.

Lawyers George Loucas and John Goetz, representing Prince's family, said in a statement: "What happened to Prince is happening to families across America". "We have client interests to protect at the moment, including our theory of the case".

Prince died on April 21, with his family filing suit exactly two years later. The family wishes through its investigation to shed light on this epidemic and how to better the fight to save lives.
