Defective Medical Products Attorney Corpus Christi
Legal Counsel for Victims of Harmful Medical Products
Drug and medical device manufacturers have a responsibility to the public to ensure that their products function correctly and safely. When a defective drug or medical product is widely distributed, millions of people are at risk of serious injury and even death. Scott Nelson represents clients who have been harmed or killed by defective medical products; contact our attorney, located in Corpus Christi, if you or a loved one has been injured by one of the devices listed.
DURAGESIC® Fentanyl Patch
Released in 1994, the DURAGESIC® Fentanyl Patch is a device that provides relief to individuals who suffer from severe and chronic pain. The manufacturer of this transdermal pain patch is facing numerous claims that their device causes serious injuries and even death. These lawsuits allege that the patch, intended to deliver safe doses of the strong pain medication Fentanyl over a 72-hour period, may leak and release the medication in dangerous amounts, resulting in accidental (and sometimes fatal) overdoses.
If you or a loved one has been harmed by a defective DURAGESIC® Fentanyl Patch, please contact The Law Office of Scott A. Nelson to discuss your legal rights and options.
Ortho Evra® Patch
Since its approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2001, the Ortho Evra® Patch has been a popular form of contraception among women. However, the birth control patch, which releases a combination of estrogen and progesterone when applied to the skin, was the subject of several Associated Press reports that claimed women using the patch had an increased risk of blood clots. After investigating the Ortho Evra® patch, the FDA admitted concerns about the link between the patch and higher risk of blood clots. The patch’s manufacturer, a Johnson and Johnson subsidiary called Ortho McNeil, has faced lawsuits, some filed by the families of women who died from these blood clots.
If you’ve developed blood clots while using the Ortho Evra® patch, dangerous drug attorney Scott Nelson would like to speak with you. Please contact our firm today.
Composix® Kugel® Mesh Patch
A device used to repair ventral hernias, the Kugel® mesh patch is under investigation for claims that a plastic component can break and cut through patients’ internal organs and tissue. Patients who have had the device implanted have claimed complications such as bowel perforations and chronic intestinal fistulae.
Attorney Scott Nelson is currently accepting defective medical product claims for the Composix® Kugel® mesh patch; contact our Corpus Christi office for more details.
Medtronic Lead Recall
In 2007, Medtronic issued a recall of a device commonly found in defibrillators – a thin electrical cable connecting the implanted defibrillator to the patient’s heart. The recall followed reports that the device was defective and causing injuries and deaths. The reports claimed that the faulty wires were sending false signals, either causing repeated, massive electric shocks or failing to deliver the necessary shock.
Scott Nelson represents clients who have been injured because of a faulty Medtronic lead wire. If you or a loved one has been hurt or if you have lost a loved one because of this dangerous device, please contact our office today.
Panacryl Absorbable Sutures
Developed as an absorbable suture for postoperative wound healing, the Panacryl products were recalled in 2006, as reports surfaced that the sutures were not being properly absorbed - and were, in some cases, becoming infected. If you or a loved one has had a problem with these defective medical products, please contact attorney Scott Nelson today.
