Benicar is a  high blood pressure medication.   Benicor has been  linked to severe intestinal injury, intestinal damage, chronic diarrhea, malnourishment and severe weight loss. Seniors are the largest population receiving prescriptions for Benicar and are the most vulnerable to sever injury from Benicar.

FDA Benicar Warnings

The FDA   has warned patients and doctors that Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil) may cause a severe gastrointestinal (GI) problem called Villous Atrophy. Benicar causes the intestines to lose the texture and makes it difficult to absorb nutrients. This leads to malnutrition which and other digestive problems. This is very dangerous for seniors and can lead to death or hospitalization because of dehydration, chronic diarrhea and malnutrition. Villous Atrophy can result in limiting  the ability of the small intestines to absorb nutrients from food. At the most serious stages,  villous atrophy  causes  damage to the intestinal crypts, which is the intestinal lining that surround the villi.

Benicar has been used by millions of people. Benicar warnings did not adequately disclose  how serious the side effects form this medication is.

Bard Retrievable IVC Filter Lawsuits

Bard IVC filter lawyers are accepting cases for perforation, migration, and pulmonary Embolism. A fractured IVC filter can also perforate other organs, including the heart and lungs.


IVC Filter Migration

When a retrievable IVC filter fractures and migrates, you can experience severe pain, bleeding, further embolus, and other life-threatening complications.

  • C.R. Bard’s Recovery IVC Filter

What Are IVC Filters?

IVC filters are placed in individuals who have deep vein thrombosis in their legs to prevent blood clots that break off from traveling to the heart, lungs and brain. 

The Bard's Recovery IVC Filter and G2 IVC Filter System were approved for sale via the U.S. Food & Drug Administration's (FDA) 510(k) protocols.   C. R. Bard removed the Recovery IVC from the market in 2005, but it is believed that there are still devices implanted in people.  The G2, which was the replacement  for the Recovery, is still being used.

What Ia The Concerns?

Retrievable IVC filter implants have been fracturing and migrating. Usually the fractured portions of the device migrate to the heart and lungs. Fragments of IVC filters can also migrate to other organs. The metal fragments from a retrievable IVC filter have migrated to   the heart, lungs or another organ. The resulting   injury is bleeding, severe pain, and further embolism.

In August 2010, the FDA issued an advisory in response to the noted adverse incident reports.

Pay Day Loan Class Action, Pay Day Loan Default Lawyers

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Class MDL Class Action News

Pay day loans in Florida are up and Pay Day Loan companies are attracting review for their practices of charging huge interest rates for out Florida residents who just cannot pay them on time.  The Florida Supreme Court  is looking at a  payday loan class-action lawsuit suit.

Pay Day Loan Class Action Lawsuits

By Regan McCarthy

The Florida Supreme Court is considering whether a group seeking a class-action lawsuit against a check-advance company should be allowed to move forward with the case. Regan McCarthy reports The company argues the individuals signed contracts waiving their rights to class-action suits.

When Wendy Betts received a payday loan from McKenzie Check Advance she signed a contract waiving the right to file a class-action suit. Now she wants to bring a suit against the company, but she can’t find a lawyer willing to take her case individually, meaning her only option is to try for a class action suit, despite the contact she’d signed. Lawyers stand to make a lot more money through class action suits, than through individual cases, which generally are small claims wrapped up in complex issues. Paul Bland is the lawyer representing Betts and other members of a group hoping to sue the company together. Bland, says the waivers banning the class action suit should be thrown out because they’re keeping the people from being able to move forward with a case.

“If this arbitration clause had said, you have to go to Alaska to bring claims, that would be unenforceable. If the arbitration clause had said that the filing fees for the arbitrator would be a million dollars, there’s no doubt that that would be unenforceable.  And  t was a trial court’s finding that there was essentially no reasonable avenue other than a class action.”

But the company’s lawyer Jamie Bianchi  says the issue is not about whether class action suits are good or bad, but about federal policy.

“There’s a federal goal of promoting arbitrations and we’re going to, as a policy the United States is going to follow it.”

And Justice Barbara Pariente says the state court will have to follow the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, whether the justices think it’s right or wrong.

“We’re here with the hand we’re dealt, which is in this case, the U.S. Supreme court and all the decisions after that.”

But, Pariente says she’s not certain the U.S. Supreme Court ruling takes into account whether there are other viable options for citizens blocked from class action suits. The court did not indicate when they expect to rule on the case.

Florida Pay Day Loan Laws

 Under Florida law, payday lenders cannot seek to have a borrower prosecuted for bouncing a check given as security for a loan, so if the creditor is threatening to have you charged with "theft by check" it is almost certainly lying in an attempt to frighten you.

Although payday loans are legal in Florida, the amount of interest and other fees they can charge to consumers are fairly strictly regulated by state law.

Under Florida law, the payday lender may be required to work out a repayment plan with you at a reasonable interest rate.

Stryker is reaching out to victims of their Rejuvinate and ABG II Hip replacements thru Broadspire Services Inc. Beware and contact a Stryker Hip Replacement lawyer immediately. It is best to have a retained lawyer as these cases will be part of a nationwide  MDL ( multi distrcit litigation ) hip replacement lawsuit just like the DePuy Pinnacle and many others. Stryker says "“Stryker will be reimbursing patients for testing, treatment, revision surgery; if necessary; and other costs relating to this voluntary recall.” But this is vague and unclear and by accepting this you may lose your oppoertunity for a settlement once these are negotiated by Stryker lawyers. Stryker is not on your side.

Stryker Broadspire Contacts For Medical Expenses

You may have recently received a Stryker letter from a doctor informing you that Broadspire Services, Inc. had been retained to handle claims for patient expenses related to the Stryker Rejuvenate recall. According to information on Stryker’s website, “Stryker will be reimbursing patients for testing, treatment, revision surgery, if necessary, and other costs relating to this voluntary recall.” Stryker has also directed doctors to inform their patients that Broadspire would be working directly with patients on their claims, and to contact Stryker for more information. You should keep in mind that any information you disclose during the Stryker Broadspire claims process, or to a Broadspire representative, could dramatically effect  your Stryker hip recall lawsuit settlement.  You should speak to a Stryker  lawyer before you contact Broadspire, and especially before you agree to or sign anything. This is extremely important.

Many seniors do not understand the process and are easily coerced. They are vulnerable and concerned about medical care. You should speak to an experienced Stryker Hip Replacement lawyer.
