Prince’s family is taking legal action against the
doctor after suing the hospital.
It’s been over two years since the passing of Prince. The rapper’s toxicology report revealed that he died with exceedingly high levels of fentanyl in his bodies.
At this point, the police haven’t filed any criminal charges against anybody who was possibly involved in Prince’s death.
However, his family is now taking legal action against the doctor who prescribed him the pain medication that ultimately caused the late musician’s death.
According to TMZ, Prince’s family has filed a lawsuit against Dr. Michael Shulenberg for failing to properly treat the singer. According to the family, Schulenberg last treated Prince on April 20th in 2016, just a day before the “Purple Rain” fentanyl overdose. The court documents reveal that the family claimed the doctor’s failure played a major role in Prince’s untimely death.
Along with Schulenberg, Prince’s family has also named the hospital and Walgreen’s in the lawsuit. If you remember, Prince’s family previously sued the hospital that initially treated Prince’s opioid overdose as well as Walgreen’s for giving the musician prescription medications to him without a proper medical purpose and failing to ensure the medication was being used properly.
PageSix reports that Prince’s family is currently seeking $50K for unspecified damages. However, Schulenberg’s attorney believes that Prince’s family’s lawsuit against his client holds no merit whatsoever.
