Debbie Schork sued a drug company for their failure for not warning her the side effects of the drug she took and she ended up losing a hand due to gangrene. She ended up losing the case because the courts threw it out due to the fact that she used the generic brand of the drug called promethazine. While Ms. Levine who had a similar case but instead was given the brand name drug, Phenergan won 6.8 million dollars from her case.
