Unfortunately, it has become very common that there are harmful side effects and serious health risks and damage from the use of prescription drugs and over the counter drugs that had required the FDA to issue warning and recalls. Some drugs may cause drug interaction, additional health problems and even death. If you or a family member have suffered injuries such as harmful side effects as a result of a defective or dangerous drug, you have the right to compensation from the manufacturer of that drug which caused your injuries. Mooney & Associates understand the pharmaceutical litigation laws and will diligently pursue compensation for you for your serious injuries. When is a Recall Issued? A recall is when a drug is removed from the market or a correction is made to the drug because it is either defective or potentially harmful. A company does this voluntarily if it discovers the problem or is required to do it because of concerns raised by the FDA. If you have a medicine that has been recalled, talk to your doctor about your risks and alternatives and return them to the place of purchase for refund. Click the lists below show recent drug recalls: 2014 Our firm is now accepting cases involving a medical product called a Morcellator used to treat uterine fibroids. These devices were used during laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgeries to treat uterine fibroids and during hysterectomies and myomectomies. Unfortunately it has been discovered that the morecellation products pose risk of spreading unsuspected cancerous tissue beyond the uterus. Most women will develop uterine fibroids at some point in their lives, although most cause no symptoms. In some cases, fibroids can cause symptoms, such as heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, pelvic pressure or pain, and/or frequent urination which require medical or surgical therapy. Many women choose to undergo laparoscopic hysterectomy or myomectomy and often these procedures are performed using a power morcellator. Based on FDA analysis and data currently available, if laparoscopic power morcellation is performed in women with unsuspected uterine sarcoma, there is a risk that the procedure will spread the cancerous tissue within the abdomen and pelvis, significantly worsening the patient’s long-term survival. If you or a loved one was treated with a morcellator and has been diagnosed with uterine sarcoma, leiomyosarcoma (LMS) or some other cancer that may have spread during a laparoscopic hysterectomy, a robotic hysterectomy or a laparoscopic myomectomy (uterine fibroid removal), contact our office immediately for a free consultation and evaluation. 2013 March 18, 2013 Clinical Specialties Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Avastin Unit Dose Syringes due to Potential Serious Eye Infection March 17, 2013 Medprep Consulting Inc.
