FDA Vena Cava Filter WarningsThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a safety warning in 2010, citing that more than 900 IVC Filter adverse event reports were filed over five years A study published in the April 2013 edition of Jama Internal Medicine, found that less than 10% of retrievable IVC filters surveyed were successfully removed. They also reported that 8% of persons surveyed still suffered venous thrombotic events while the IVC filter was in place. In 2014, the FDA issued an updated warning to doctors recommending that IVC filters be removed within one to two months once the need for the filter has passed. They noted that doctors may not have previously been made aware of the urgency surrounding retrieval of the device.

Benicar Gastrointestinal Injury Lawyers
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 WarningsThe 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 LawsuitsBenicar 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 LawsuitsOur 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.
It has become apparent that there is a large number of drugs and devices class actions that have been filed against manyfacturers that have targeted women.
We can start with the Dow Corning siicone breast implant class action of years ago. Women are still suffering today. The Dow Corning Trust just recently launched a silicone breast implant explant program. The leaking silicone and bursting implants lead to toxicity related immune system diseases like lupus and fibromylagia and other immune deficiency diseases. Women to this date are still suffering from their Dow silicone Breast Implants and the Dow Corning settlement trust is stll living out payments like the new breast explant program.
Fosamax was supposed to cure osteoporosis but ended up causing femur fractures.Then we have Yaz and Yasmine birth control pills. Young women were having their lives altered by pre-mature strokes, pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, blood clots and heart attacks. Many girls harmed were barely starting a college life.
History moves along to the metal on metal and metal componednt hip replacements like the DePuy Pinnacle and ASR Hip Replacement and the Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG II Modular Stems. These are a metal on metal hip replacement recalled for their need for revision surgery. These hip replacements failed in women more then men. The smaller frame of a women makes the device more prone to problems in the female structure.
NuvRing has been another disaster for women causing:
blood clots in women
cerebral thrombosis in women
deep vein thrombosis
heart attack in women
retinal thrombosis in women
stroke or cerebral hemorrhage
thrombophlebitis and venous thrombosis with or without embolism
toxic shock syndrome
Fosamax for osteoporosis actually causes what it is prescribed to fix , femur fractures.

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.
