LOS ANGELES– Relative of Chris Cornell on Thursday sued a physician they state overprescribed drugs to the rock singer, causing his death.

The claim says Dr. Robert Koblin and his Beverly Hills office “negligently and repeatedly” recommended “unsafe mind-altering controlled substances to Chris Cornell which hindered Mr. Cornell’s cognition, clouded his judgment, and triggered him to take part in unsafe impulsive habits that he was unable to control, costing him his life.”

It focuses in particular on Koblin’s recommending Cornell big amounts of lorazepam– which is offered under the trademark name Ativan– to Cornell in the 20 months leading up to his death. The claim mentions Koblin and his office personnel issued the prescriptions without the doctor physically examining or talking to Cornell throughout that time duration.

Coroner’s detectives ruled Cornell’s death a suicide by hanging. Toxicology tests revealed the presence of Ativan together with barbiturates, caffeine, the anti-opioid drug naloxone, and a decongestant.

However the autopsy report said the drugs were not a cause of death.

The claim says Koblin understood Cornell had a major history of substance abuse.

The “unmonitored use of such excessive amounts of lorazepam … was known to increase the threat of suicide because it can severely impair judgment, believing and impulse control and diminish the capability of a patient to think and act logically,” the suit states.

Personnel reached by phone at Koblin’s workplace said there was no instant comment.

Vicky Cornell has actually stated considering that instantly after her other half’s death that she felt the prescription drugs he was taking drove him to behave oddly, and there were no indications he may take his own life.

” At the time of his death, Mr. Cornell had whatever to live for and was preparing a future of recordings, performances and continued work as a charitable activist,” the lawsuit says.

Cornell’s wailing voice and his long-haired, shirtless stage presence made him an important figure in the grunge-rock of the 1990s. Soundgarden was among the first groups to surge to nationwide attention in a wave that later on consisted of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains.

Cornell also fronted the super-groups Audioslave with members of Rage Against The Device and Temple of the Pet with members of Pearl Jam.

Last month, a bronze statue of Cornell was put up outside the Museum of Popular Culture in Seattle.

The suit, which seeks damages to be identified later, likewise names confidential staffers at Koblin’s workplace as accuseds.

Cornell’s earliest child, 18-year-old Lillian Jean Cornell-Silver, is also called as a defendant, but the claim highlights that she is only consisted of for procedural factors.
