Girl to get $155,000 in settlement
CARLISLE - A Shippensburg girl will receive $155,000 over the next 29 years as part of a compromise settlement approved Tuesday by Cumberland County Judge Edgar Bayley. In a brief hearing, Bayley accepted the settlement between Peoples Drug Stores Inc. and Terry and Gloria Beecher, R.R. 6, Shippensburg. The Beechers filed the suit in January on behalf of their 4-year-old daughter, Nicole, who overdosed after a Peoples pharmacist gave her five times the prescribed dosage of medication to treat hypothyroidism. Under the settlement, Peoples will pay Nicole $40,000 immediately and $1 15,000 in five payments between the years 2006 and 2018. Nicole would receive $10,000 in 2006, $15,000 in 2009, $20,000 in 2012, $25,000 in 2015, and $45,000 in 2018. The suit states that in March 1987, Nicole suffered from hypothyroidism and her physician prescribed 0.025 milligrams of Synthroid daily. In an answer to the original suit filed this June, the company admitted its pharmacist gave a dosage equivalent to 0.125 milligrams daily. The pharmacist worked at the Peoples store at 59 E. King St., Shippensburg. Nicole became sluggish after taking the medication. She was taken to Chambersburg Hospital on March 17, 1987, and was transferred by ambulance to Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, where she remained until March 23. The suit said Nicole suffered from a metabolic imbalance because of the overdose. Gloria Beecher told Bayley on Tuesday that Nicole appeared in good health, but that a physician said there was a chance there could be some neurological effects later. Peoples attorney James D. Flower ot -Carlisle said the agreement was not an admission of liability. He said he did not -know if the pharmacist was still employed at Peoples. The Beechers' attorney, William A. Addams of Carlisle, would not comment on the amount of the legal and medical bills that would be paid out of the initial $40,000. The settlement states that the family incurred $9,521.44 in medical expenses, and $13,970.75 in legal fees related to the case. Bayley asked the family if it was satisfied with the settlement and Gloria replied that she was more concerned about Nicole's health.
