Filing Benicar Intestinal Injury Lawsuits

What Is Benicar?

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 Villous Atrophy Lawyers Filing Benicar Lawsuits

Benicar has been used by millions of people. Benicar warnings did not adequately disclose  how serious the side effects form this medication is. The Benicar lawyers at Class Action Lawyer Network are  filing claims for individuals who have experienced chronic diarrhea, sprue-like enteropathy or villous atrophy after using Benicar.

Hemorrhages  Caused by Xarelto

Xarelto Lawyers Filing Extensive Bleeding Lawsuits

Our Xarelto lawyers are accepting Xarelto lawsuits for hemorrhage caused by Xarelto. Nationwide Xarelto attorneys are reviewing cases of excessive bleeding from Xarelto. In a recent Xareleto lawsuit a widow from Missouri has filed an Xarelto claim  against Johnson & Johnson, Janssen Research & Development, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, et al. to demand that the defendants be held liable for the death of her husband. Dixie A. Smith, surviving spouse of Jay Christopher Smith, filed the complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, where it joins similar lawsuits pending in multidistrict litigation (MDL) No. 2592 before Judge Fallon. The plaintiff contends that had her late husband never taken the defendants’ medication, Xarelto, he would not have suffered a deadly intracerebral hemorrhage. Ms. Smith is suing for compensatory damages for past, present, and future economic expenditures incurred as a result of the decedent’s use of Xarelto, including medical and funeral expenses, loss of earnings, loss of companionship and support, and loss of the prospective net accumulations of an estate. Xarelto Caused A Brain  Hemorrhage The decedent’s physician prescribed Xarelto (rivaroxaban) during December of 2012. He continued to take the medication as prescribed until May of 2013. On May 4, the decedent was admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU), at which point the hospital staff discontinued his use of Xarelto. He was transferred to the care of a specialty hospital unit on May 18 and on May 22 he died of the intracerebral hemorrhage. According to Ms. Smith’s Xarelto lawsuit, her late husband’s passing was a direct result of his use of rivaroxaban, which he reportedly never would have taken had he been fully informed of the risks. Xarelto is an anticoagulant or blood thinner that is prescribed for the treatment and prevention of blood clots. The medication is intended to reduce the risk of life-threatening complications caused by blood clots, including pulmonary embolism and stroke. Xarelto Lawsuits The product liability lawsuit regarding Xarelto draws attention to several reviews and clinical studies of the drug, including a 2012 report issued by The Institute for Safe Medication Practices. This report stated that there had been “356 reports of serious, disabling, or fatal injury in which rivaroxaban was the primary suspect drug. The report more than doubled from the previous quarter total of 128 cases.” The organization brought these statistics to the attention of the defendants, who reportedly advised The Institute for Safe Medication Practices that the data did not reflect any safety issues that required action. Ms. Smith’s Xarelto lawsuit alleges that the defendants prioritized profit over patient safety. Her complaint further claims that the defendants concealed their knowledge of the severe and life-threatening complications of Xarelto from consumers and the medical community. The lawsuit notes that the pharmaceutical giants failed to highlight the risks of uncontrollable bleeding events, nor did they provide medical protocols for stabilizing patients suffering from these bleeding events. Xarelto had been marketed as a replacement for an older blood thinner, warfarin (Coumadin). Warfarin has been used for years for patients who may be at a higher risk of blood clots. However, patients taking warfarin required regular medical monitoring and dietary restrictions, which Xarelto had promised to eliminate. Our Xarelto lawyers have been reviewing claims for excessive bleeding like these. Xarelto lawsuits are now consolidated in an MDL because many people have suffered injuries of a same type from Xarelto. Speak to an Xarelto lawyer today.

Philadelphia Amtrak Train Accident

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in amtrak train crash, Philadelphia Amtrak Crash

Philadelphia  Class Action Lawyer Network Amtrak Train Accident Lawyers

An  Amtrak train  crashed in Philadelphia, killing at least seven people. The train  was moving at 106 mph before it ran off the rails along a sharp curve where the speed limit is just 50 mph. Catastrophic accidents such as this cause serious injuries and death to passengers. Our train accident attorneys are ready to hold the Amtrak company  accountable for the extreme negligence on their part that caused injury to innocent victims.

 The Details Of The Philadelphia Amtrak  Crash Are Astonishing

Apparently the  engineer applied the emergency brakes moments before the crash but managed to slow the train to only 102 mph by the time the locomotive’s black box stopped recording data.  The speed limit just before the bend is 80 mph. The engineer, whose name was not released, refused to give a statement to law enforcement and left a police precinct with a lawyer. Sumwalt said federal accident investigators hope to interview him but will give him a day or two to recover from the “traumatic event.” “Our mission is to find out not only what happened but why it happened, so that we can prevent it from happening again,” Sumwalt said.

Passengers Injured

More than 200 people aboard the Washington-to-New York train were injured in the wreck, which took place in a decayed industrial neighborhood not far from the Delaware River just before 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. Passengers crawled out the windows of the torn and toppled rail cars in the darkness and emerged, dazed and bloody, in the nation’s deadliest train accident in nearly seven years. “We are heartbroken by what has happened here,” Mayor Michael Nutter said.

5  Are Reported Dead in Train Wreck

Amtrak suspended all service until further notice along the Philadelphia-to-New York stretch of the nation’s busiest rail corridor — snarling the morning commute and forcing thousands to find some other way to reach their destination — as investigators examined the wreckage and the tracks and gathered up other evidence. The dead included an AP employee and a midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy. Many of the injured suffered broken bones or burns. At least 10 remained hospitalized in critical condition.

Catastrophic Train Accident

Nutter said some people remained unaccounted for, though he cautioned that some passengers listed on the Amtrak manifest might not have boarded the train, while others might not have checked in with authorities. This is a catastrophic event and we understand the first thing families want to do is locate their loved one’s. A catastrophic accident like this is akin to an airplane crash and victims are feeling the physical and emotional shock of such an event right now. Our prayers are with you. You will be solicited by attorneys and you must make the right decision to protect your rights and the rights of your loved one who has been injured. You must be sure you get the medical help you need right now. When many people are injured in the same way they become a class.

FELA Lawyer- Train Accident Attorneys

This is not a simple legal matter. If you were are an injured railroad  employee you need an experienced FELA attorney. You need an attorney that understands the transportation industry. We suggest you speak to no representatives from Amtrak and accept no offers or say anything. The company is not on your side nor are their insurance providers. If you or a loved one has been injured in this catastrophic event or you have lost a loved one contact us immediately. Boston, New Haven, New York,Philadelphia,Baltimore, Washington, DC,

Lawyers Filing Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits For Baby Powder

Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits Do You Want To File A Baby Powder Cancer Lawsuit?

Studies show that talcum-based powder can  cause ovarian cancer in women who have used it for genital/perineal hygiene. Studies dating back to 1982 have consistently linked prolonged talc-based baby and body powder usage with ovarian cancer.  The talc particles moves  through the female reproductive system and settles in the ovaries. These particles may remain in the ovaries for many years, creating inflammation resulting in the development and proliferation of cancer cells. Studies HAVE Linked  Ovarian Cancer to Talc-Based Baby/Body Powder The pathology reports and tissue samples that were used to diagnose the ovarian cancer can now be examined to determine whether your ovarian tissues contain talc particles.  Talc particles can be found in the pelvic lymph nodes, ovaries, and fallopian tubes and take many years to disintegrate and exit the body. The talcum powder cancer lawyers at Class Action Lawyer Network are speaking to women about  talc having  caused your ovarian cancer.

DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuit News, Hip Replacement Lawyers Filing Lawsuits

DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuit Update

DePuy ASR lawsuit claims stemming from the 2010 DePuy hip recall continue to move forward in courts throughout the country . According to documents filed in California’s San Francisco Superior Court on April 25th, a Plaintiff who had been seeking an expedited trial of her DePuy hip lawsuit is voluntarily seeking dismissal of the case. (Tilman v. DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., et al., No. CGC11508806; Calif. Super. Ct., San Francisco).

This news is particularly interesting as when a case is voluntarily dismissed it is often an indication that the parties have come to an agreement. 

DePuy ASR Hip Lawsuits Lawyers Filing DePuy Lawsuits

Court records indicate that there are more than 10,000 DePuy ASR hip lawsuits currently pending in courts throughout the U.S. The DePuy hip recall was announced after the metal-on-metal hip implants were found to be failing in an unacceptably high number of patients. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is now reviewing the safety of all metal hip implants, over fears that the devices can shed dangerous amounts of metal debris into patient’s bodies, leading to premature failure of the hips and other serious complications. In January, the agency proposed a new regulation that would make such devices ineligible for the agency’s 510(k) clearance process, which allowed all-metal hips like the ASR hip to gain FDA approval without first undergoing human clinical trials. The FDA also advised doctors to test metal hip implant patients for elevated metal ion levels if they present with symptoms of a failing hip implant.*

The majority of DePuy hip lawsuits have been filed in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio. Court records indicate that the first trials in that litigation will begin this September. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197) Two lawsuits have already gone to trial at the state level, one of which ended with a California Superior Court jury awarding the Plaintiff more than $8 million in damages. (Kransky v. DePuy, BC456086, California Superior Court, Los Angeles County) However, the jury hearing a second trial in Illinois state court found for DePuy. (Strum v. DePuy, 2011-L-9352, Circuit Court of Cook County) According to an April 16th report from The New York Times, documents submitted as evidence in both of those trials indicated that Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy Orthopaedics unit knew that the ASR was flawed years before the recall was announced, but did not disclose this information to the public or the medical community.**

Earlier this month, DePuy Orthopaedics announced it would end sales of metal-on-metal hip implants, citing recent FDA actions and decreased demand for the products, according to the New York Times. The sales suspension includes a metal-on-metal version of the company’s DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement system, which is also the subject of lawsuits.

If you have a faulty DePuy and have had revision surgery or have been told you need revision surgery call and speak to a hip replacement lawyer today.

Stryker has recalled a number of hip replacements including: Stryker Rejuvinate, Stryker ABG II and the Trident. Lawsuits are being filed against Stryker for implant failure of all these devices

Stryker recalled its Trident artificial hip in 2007 due to device failures in recipients. Previous plaintiffs have cited symptoms consistent with other defective metal-on-metal hip implants, along with one defect that was unique to the Trident device: Many recipients claimed of hearing a loud squeaking noise coming from their hip region after receiving this particular model.

Stryker recalls on the Rejuvinate and ABG II will effect thousands and the lawsuits are coming in in mass. The FDA has taken another look and is proposing changes to regulations that allowed two Stryker Corp. recalled hip implant systems to be deemed safe. But the move does little for the tens of thousands of patients already implanted with the faulty medical devices. The DePuy Pinnacle and ASR are other failed recalled hip replacements that have injured thousands of victims.  The FDA proposed changes for the 510(k) Premarket Notification Process for  the approval of metal-on-metal hip implants like those manufactured by Stryker and DePuy come very late for seniors burdened with painful revision surgeries.

In July 2012, after injured patients filed more than 60 adverse event reports with the FDA, Stryker issued a voluntary recall of its ABG II and Rejuvenate hip implant systems. Post-market surveillance revealed that a metal-on-metal junction in these devices can shed metal debris, causing pain and tissue damage that may require a revision surgery. Can the FDA actually step up to the plate and protect our citizens?

The FDA’s most recent proposal aims to standardize the requirements for how the agency accepts data, regardless of the submission or application type. The new regulation will require 510(k) submissions to be scrutinized by an institutional review board (IRB), a must for PMA applications.

The proposal for better practices in approval of medical devices like hip implants would become effective 180 days after publication, and the proposal to shift from 510(k) to PMA for metal hips would become effective 90 days after publication. Lawyers for Stryker and Depuy hip replacements are filing lawsuits for failed devices.
