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.

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.

Stryker Hip Replacement Lawsuit Urgent Message, Broadspire Claims

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.

DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement Lawsuits Reach Settlement Fund Status

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement Updates

Class Action lawyers are seeking all recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement to file their hip replacement lawsuits now. DePuy has reached a potentils fund agreement and time is limited. If you have a DePuy Pinncle we want to hear from you now. DePuy Hip Lawsuits May Result in Large Settlement Fund
Perry Larkin | February 13th, 2013 | Posted in Depuy Hip Recall

Compensation for DePuy HipManufacturer Johnson & Johnson (J&J), the parent company to the hip replacement manufacturer DePuy, is currently negotiating settlements for plaintiffs who have retained a DePuy hip lawyer to seek compensation due to complications from the implants. Sources say that the settlements could cost as much as $2 billion.

Insiders close to the defendants state that J&J cannot afford to allow the cases to go to trial and run the risk of having to pay massive jury awards in every one of these cases. In January of 2012, J&J indicted that $800 million had been reserved to settle lawsuits filed because of problems with DePuy hip implants. However, a spokeswoman for the company, Lorie Gawreluk, stated that evidence to be presented at trial will show that DePuy “acted appropriately and responsibly.”
Over 10,000 lawsuits pending due to DePuy hip problems

The exact reported number of lawsuits, according to a filing in November of 2012, is 10,100 lawsuits pending against DePuy and J&J. Approximately 7,240 of these cases have already been consolidated in multidistrict litigation (MDL) in Ohio federal court. Another 2,000 have been centralized in California state court. The remaining claims against DePuy await trial in local courts nationwide.

The plaintiffs’ executive committee is presided over by U.S. District Judge David A. Katz in Toledo. The co-lead council for the committee—Steven J. Skikos—has stated that the current focus of the plaintiffs is to prepare for trial. So far, the attorneys for the plaintiffs and the defense have reviewed over 50 million pages of documents linked to this litigation. At least 50 witness have been deposed.
Johnson & Johnson considering settlement of $2 billion

Three cases have been scheduled to go to trial with the first beginning on January 23 in Los Angeles. If J&J loses these early cases, a precedent may be set that would yield financial payouts that the company can’t afford. This is why the company is contemplating settling the cases for $2 billion. It’s a large settlement, but not unusual in cases such as this.

One example of a company that had to pay a vast amount similar to the suggested settlement amount from J&J is Merck & Co. who, in 2007, paid settlements for their painkiller Vioxx from a fund of $4.85 billion. Vioxx had been shown to double a patient’s risk of heart attack and stroke.

DePuy settlements would be calculated based on each plaintiff’s claim and the merits of the complaint.
Multiple problems linked to DePuy ASR hip implant

DePuy ASR hip replacements are reportedly prone to a number of severe problems including joint dislocations, bone fractures and infections. These devices have been connected to premature loosening, which has made hip revision surgery necessary. Also, shards of metal can break off from the implant and enter the patient’s bloodstream, causing tissue damage and joint death.

Over 10,000 lawsuits against DePuy are currently pending. $200,000 per plaintiff has been suggested as the amount each plaintiff should receive. Plaintiffs’ attorneys are alleged to have said that this figure is too low. A DePuy hip recall had been implemented in 2010. This affected 37,000 recipients of the device manufactured by DePuy in the United States, and 93,000 patients around the world.
 

Class Action lawyers for the DePuy Pinncle inform that you mist file your lawsuit now or run the risk of missing out.

GranuFlo, Naturalyte Dialysis Medication Lawsuits

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

Lawyers are filing Dialysis Medication lawsuits for cardiac problems and death from Frensius' GranuFlo and Naturlyte.

GranuFlo and NaturaLyte lawsuits are being filed nationwide. Lawyers are claiming cardiac injury from these diaysis medications.

GranuFlo and Naturalyte Information

GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are brand names of dialysates manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care Fresenius is the world’s largest provider of kidney dialysis services and products. aGranuFlo and Naturalyte are  used in thousands of dialysis centers to treat Americans with kidney disease or failure nationwide.

GranuFlo and Naturalyte Alert

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Class I recall of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte on March 29, 2012, to revise prescribing instructions.The FDA was concerned because the  use of these two products can lead to low blood pressure and cardiac arrhythmia. These products could cause  cardiopulmonary arrest and death.

Fresenius Knew The Dangers Of Naturalyte and GranuFlo

Fresenius, it appears,  was aware of the dangers of these drugs and did not share this information with health care providers, doctors or patients. An internal company memo from Nov. 4, 2011, reported that more than 900 patients had experienced heart attacks in Fresenius clinics during the previous year. The memo states that the company’s medical staff reached the conclusion that patients with excessive levels of bicarbonate in their blood were six times more likely to have cardiac arrest than those with normal levels. The memo also linked GranuFlo use to increased bicarbonate levels and heart attacks.

Granuflo and Naturalyte lawyers are filing  lawsuits against Fresenius due to GranuFlo and NaturaLyte causing cardiac death.  it is deemed that  the manufacturer “intentionally, recklessly and/or negligently concealed, suppressed, omitted and misrepresented the risks, dangers, defects, and disadvantages of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte.”
Lawsuits are Being Filed For the Bad Dialysis  Medications  GranuFlo and NaturaLyte

Justice must be sought for victims and families against a  company that  knew of the dangerous nature of  their dialysis  medications and failed to inform patients being treated. Fresenius also failed to advise health care providers of the dangers and train staff  in the safe use of GranuFlo and Naturalyte
The lawsuits are mounting up against  GranuFlo and NaturaLyte.  Families  that have  lost a loved one to cardiac arrest  are urged to contact us today for a dialysis medication lawyer. GanuFlo and Naturalyte has created  excessive bicarbonate. The chemical composition of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte encourages the overproduction of bicarbonate resulting in cardiac injury.

Lawsuits Filed

In July 2012, Alabama resident Arthruine Williams filed a lawsuit against Fresenius on behalf of her late husband, Johnny, in the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Alabama. According to the claim, Johnny Williams underwent a dialysis treatment that used GranuFlo in July 2010 and died of a heart attack the following day. His widow says that Fresenius officials knew that the use of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte posed a significant increased risk of cardiac arrest and death.

A month later, Betty Lemmond sued in the same court on behalf of her late husband, Dizzy Dean Lemmond. Her husband died of a heart attack in August 2010, the same day that he received a dialysis treatment with GranuFlo. Betty Lemmond’s lawsuit accuses Fresenius of negligence, wantonness, fraud, unjust enrichment and failure to warn patients about the dangers of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte.

In September 2012, Waddell Bishop filed a lawsuit against Fresenius on behalf of his late mother, Frances Carol Bishop, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia. Frances Carol Bishop had received a dialysis treatment in early September 2010 and died of a heart attack later that month. Waddell Bishop said his mother’s death “directly resulted from using GranuFlo and/or NaturaLyte,” according to the lawsuit

If you had serious heart issues after a dialysis treatment, you should know your legal options.
