NEW ORLEANS – A man is seeking damages for a stroke that was allegedly caused by the wrong medication.

Carlos E. Zeledon filed a lawsuit Jan. 27 against state of Louisiana through the board of supervisors of Louisiana State University Agriculture and Mechanical College on behalf of LSU Health Sciences Center and Pramilla Subramanian M.D. in Orleans Parish Civil District Court alleging medical malpractice.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff was a patient of the defendant from August 2009 to January 2014. The suit states that the plaintiff was being treated for atrial fibrillation and hypertension but that the defendant failed to prescribe the correct medication.

The plaintiff seeks all reasonable damages, court costs, attorney fees and all appropriate relief. The plaintiff is represented by attorney Harry T. Widmann in Metairie.

The case has been assigned to Division G Judge Robin M. Giarrusso.
