Product Liability Claims (Asbestos Product Claims)
Asbestos is a building material used in insulation, home remodeling, ceiling tiles, and other materials. The asbestos is removed from crushed serpentine rock, just as other elements are removed from rock during mining. Being exposed to asbestos, primarily through inhaling the fibers, is associated with both malignant cancers, such as mesothelioma and lung cancer, and benign or non-malignant diseases, such as asbestosis, pleural plaques, and benign pleural effusions. These diseases are diagnosed with x-rays and other medical tests. For more information about asbestos defective product claims go to the asbestos defective product claim information page.
Product Liability Claims (Dangerous Drug Claims)
Dangerous and defective drug claims have become more common as the pharmacuetical industry has become more powerful. With large drug companies investing hundreds of millions of dollars in developing new drugs, the businesses and people whose careers are built on the success of these drugs sometimes choose to ignore or hide research that shows certain drugs are dangerous. At other times overzealous marketing teams get control of a drug and in an attempt to expand revenues and maximize profits extend the uses of a drug beyond what is safe.
Product Liability Claims (Defective Medical Device Claims)
Defective medical devices including defective infusion pumps, hernia mesh patches, defective joints, defective implants, defective defibrillators, defective stents, and other defective medical devices can cause devastating health problems or even death. These medical implants can be extremely beneficial, but when they are defective the devices can cause serious problems
The mesh patches that are being recalled were surgically implanted into people to support the abdominal wall after hernia surgery and have a “memory recoil ring” that makes it pop into shape after it is inserted. The recall is due to ring breakage, which can result in a sharp, exposed point inside the abdomen, which can perforate the intestines, cause a fistula, abcess, bowel obstruction, and in some cases sepsis and death. If you have had a recent hernia surgery and are experiencing fever, pain at the incision site, abdominal tenderness or distention, nausea, contact your doctor immediately. Anyone that has had a Bard Composix Kugel Mesh Patch should receive notice from their hospital or surgeon. However, this isn’t always the case. Therefore, if you have had hernia surgery, it is probably a good idea to contact your surgeon to find out if your patch was recalled. The recall applies to the oval, large oval, and large circle devices.
