Woman files lawsuit after divorce

On Behalf of | Mar 7, 2018 | Divorce

The reasons an Ohio couple chooses to divorce are numerous. Infidelity, money issues or claims of irreconcilable differences are just a few of the more frequently-cited reasons couples do not want to remain together. One woman has a most unusual story to explain why her husband asked her for a divorce.

The woman has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against her former husband, a doctor, and the medical foundation where he is employed. The lawsuit alleges that after having a baby, the woman’s husband prescribed her anxiety medication to which she became addicted. She also claims that he also told her it would be harmless to mix the medication with wine.

After two years of mental suffering because of her dependency on the medication, the woman alleges that her husband sought to divorce her. She is now claiming he was irresponsible regarding her ongoing medical treatment and care. She is asking that her ex and his employer cover all of her legal fees as well as pay her a fair amount in financial restitution.

Going through a divorce often brings about enormous stress to at least one and sometimes both partners. The strain of the situation can lead to impulsive decisions that could prove to be costly later on. The right attorney can guide a client to make the best choices according to the present and future projected state of affairs. An attorney who is knowledgeable about the divorce laws in Ohio will help the client during this challenging time.
