On March 2, 2007, a Talladega County jury returned a verdict for the Plaintiff in a medical malpractice case against a local physician and his employer, Baptist Health Centers, Inc. The jury found the healthcare providers liable for the death of a 6 month old child. The child died due to toxicity from Lindane, a medication used in the treatment of head lice and scabies. The jury found that the physician wrongfully prescribed the drug and/or inadequately instructed the mother with respect to use of the medication.

A set off of $1,150,000.00 was allowed against the verdict due to previous settlements with the manufacturer and the local pharmacy. The case was tried by Heninger Garrison Davis partner, Tim Davis and Talladega attorney, Steve Adcock.
