An airplane disaster can affect you for months, and live in your memory for years. Our experienced  airplane crash lawyers provide effective representation while understanding your emotional needs after such a traumatic experience.

Emotional and psychological trauma results from the extraordinarily stressful event.  This may shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless and vulnerable in a dangerous world.  The emotional damage can linger long after the crisis is over and a permanent mark may be left on your psyche.

– Disorientation; difficulty making decisions or concentrating
– Apathy and emotional numbing
– Nightmares and reoccurring thoughts about the event
– Irritability, anger, and occasional outbursts
– Sadness and depression

Facts About Airplane Accident Law

Airplanes are considered common carriers. This means that aircraft employees are required to use the highest degree of care in transporting you to your destination. The airplane carrier is also required to inspect and maintain all equipment, and workers are required to have the skill to carry out their duties in order to protect your safety. When the airline fails to uphold these safety standards, accidents can occur. The airplane accident lawyers at Injury Lawyers USA will argue that the airline failed to satisfy its duty of the highest care to you.


If you or a loved one has been injured in an airplane accident, seek out a law office that will aggressively pursue your case while providing you with the care and concern you deserve.  As it may be difficult to make decisions during a time of such vulnerability, it is necessary to trust the airplane crash lawyer you retain. Injury Lawyers USA is here for you. Our lawyers are experienced in dealing with such issues are available to guide you and help you during this difficult time.

Airplane crashes and injuries can be caused by:

-Dangerous conditions inside the aircraft
-Careless handling of the aircraft
-Severe turbulence
-Negligent actions by incompetent flight staff
-Faulty maintenance of the aircraft and equipment
-Poor flight and airport traffic control
-Faulty equipment at the airport

Many federal, state, and international laws regulate standards for the maintenance, operation, and safety of airplanes. However, even though these laws help protect passengers of airlines, an accident may still happen. Aviation law covers personal injuries that occur aboard aircraft, including slip and fall accidents and wrongful deaths that may occur in the rare case that an airplane crashes. The laws are highly specialized, and the causes of airplane accidents may be difficult to determine.  Our lawyers are skilled litigators assisting crash victims and families nationwide and internationally.

GranuFlo Lawyers, NaturaLyte Lawsuits

 

Fresenius Medical is the manufacturer of  GranuFlo and NaturaLyte acid concentrate. These are drugs used in  dialysis treatment. There has been a recall of these dialysis drugs and  lawsuits are being filed.

Injury and death has resulted from these drugs:

  •  GranuFlo cardiovascular death,
  •  GranuFlo sudden cardiac death,
  •  GranuFlo cardiopulmonary arrest,
  •  GranuFlo heart attack,
  •  GranuFlo catastrophic cardiovascular injuries

 

Fresenius manufactures GranuFlo and NaturaLyte used in dialysis. These drugs cause alkalosis, a condition associated with an increase in cardiovascular fatalities.

 

The FDA received complaints describing alkali dosing errors that occurred during hemodialysis using dialysate concentrates containing acetic acid and acetate. When metabolized, these potential sources of alkali can contribute to elevated bicarbonate levels in patients undergoing hemodialysis.

 

This can contribute to metabolic alkalosis, which is a significant risk factor associated with :

 

Low blood pressure

Cardiopulmonary arrest

Cardiac arrhythmia

Sudden heart attack

Stroke

Hemodialysis cardiopulmonary arrest

 

A study which was conducted between January and December of 2010 found that patients with pre-dialysis bicarbonate levels greater than 28mEq/L were 4.7 times more likely to suffer a cardiac arrest. The study also discovered that patients with pre-dialysis potassium lower than 4 mEq/L had a 6.3 times higher risk of cardiac arrest.

 

In May 2012 the FDA notified health care providers to consider the presence and quantity of acetate, citrate, and/or acetic acid in dialysate concentrates when determining the patients’ dialysate prescription.

There is a GranuFlo and NaturaLyte Class 1 Recall

 

Serial numbers for recalled Naturalyte Liquid Acid Concentrate range from:

 

08-0231-4, 08-1001-0, 08-1201-8, 08-1231-3, 08-1251-1, 08-1301-4, 08-2201-5, 08-2231-2, 08-2251-0, 08-2301-3,08-2351-8, 08-3201-4, 08-3231-1, 08-3251-9, 08-3301-2, 08-4123-1, 08-4223-7, 08-4225-1, 08-4230- 2, 08-4231-0, 08-4323-5, 08-4325-1, 13-1251-1, 13-2201-5, 13-2231-2, 13-2251-0, 13-3231-1, 13-3251-9, 13-4123-1, 13-4220-1, 13-4225-1, 13-4325-

 

Serial numbers for recalled Naturalyte GranuFlo (powder) Acid Concentrate range from:

GranuFlo & NaturaLyte is one of the most widely prescribed dry acid products used for dialysis  at Fresenius'  clinics, as well as other hemodialysis centers that purchase their dialysis supplies from Fresenius.  It is estimated that 125,000 patients in non-Fresenius clinics are treated with GranuFlo.

Stryker Hip Replacement Lawyers, Stryker Hip Replacement Helpline

Adding to the Zimmer and DePuy metal on metal hip replacement Stryker has recalled it's latest metal component hip replacement implant.  Stryker has voluntarily recalled the  Rejuvenate metal component hip replacement implant and ABG II modular- neck stems
Stryker has voluntarily  stopped  market distribution of these hip replacements due to  increased risk of injury. The hip replacement implants have been shown to fret or corrode, harming body tissue and causing pain and  swelling. Other injuries include:

  •     Severe inflammatory reactions
  •     Pain in the groin
  •     metal toxicity ort poisoning
  •     high metal levels in the blood
  •     need for additional surgery
  •     Breakdown of muscles, tendons and other soft tissues in and around the hip joint
  •     Loss of surrounding bone
  •     Loss of mobility

While other types of hip implants such as those made by Johnson & Johnson and DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. involve a metal ball rubbing against a metal socket, the Stryker Rejuvenate products involve a metal neck inside a metal stem. The Stryker Hip replacement Helpline and  hip replacement lawyers are reaching out to all victims of the failed device for a potential multi district litigation.

The products have metal components and although they are not metal on metal run the same risks of chromium and cobalt toxicity poisoning. If you have been injured you are advised to contact your doctor immediately and contact the Stryker Hip Replacement Helpline for a Stryker lawyer

Attention DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuit Filing Ending August 2012

Breaking news; If you were injured by the DePuy hip Recall You must file your lawsuit now. Filing deadline August 2012

Most DePuy ASR Lawsuits Must Be Filed Before August 2012

Posted May 18, 2012 4:57 PM

 
DePuy ASR hip implant patients in most states who do not file lawsuits before August 23, 2012 may lose their rights to compensation or to file a lawsuit. Every state has a law called the statute of limitations that sets a limited time period in which a lawsuit for compensation can be filed. If a person with a legal claim or legal case fails to have a lawsuit filed on their behalf within this time period their claim can be forever barred. In summary, people who do not assert their rights in court within a limited time lose those rights and can never thereafter bring that claim.
Why is the Statute of Limitations for Most ASR Hip Implant Patients This August?
Every state has its own time limit for filing lawsuits called the Statute of Limitations. DePuy and Johnson and Johnson, the manufacturers of the ASR Hip Implant, have a right to have lawsuits dismissed or decided in their favor regardless of the injuries if the lawsuit is not filed in time to comply with the statute of limitations.
Most states in the United States use a two year time period for the statute of limitations. Other states may have a 1 year up to a six year time period for the statute of limitations. Different states use different rules to calculate when these time periods start running and when it is too late to bring a lawsuit. These calculations can be difficult to make and there have been many lawsuits over the running of the statutes of limitations in different types of cases. Each person’s case should be carefully evaluated individually by an experienced lawyer because individual circumstances can affect calculating this time period. This blog is for general information and awareness and you should not use this information to make your own calculation to rely on for your case for the statutes of limitations.
This two year statute of limitations will run for many DePuy ASR hip implant cases because the official DePuy Recall Notice that received widespread publicity was issued on August 24, 2010. The two year period from that Recall Notice will expire on August 23, 2012. Thus, lawsuits for injured ASR patients must be filed in those states with a two year statute of limitations or it may be too late for those patients to make a claim.
Which States Have a Two Year Statute of Limitations
Arizona, Alabama, Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, North Dakota, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia are the states with a two year statute of limitations for injury cases.
However, the calculations used to measure the two year time periods are different in different states and it is important to have each case calculated by an experience attorney to be sure that the time period does not run out before the lawsuit is filed.
For example, the two year statute of limitations in Virginia is unusual in that the two year time period in that state runs from when the person first has pain or is aware of an injury even if that was before the recall of before they had any idea that DePuy might be responsible. So in Virginia it is likely that the statute of limitations may have already run on some cases where the person had pain from their hip implant before the recall date. It is possible that someone reading this blog could have a statute of limitations that will run tomorrow or next week!
Immediate individual legal advice is critical to making sure that the Statute of Limitation is not missed.
There are many states other than those listed above that have a statute of limitations of two years from the date of death if the implant caused a death. Some states have longer statutes of limitations for injury cases than for death cases.
Are There Exceptions to the Statute of Limitations?
There are few exceptions to the Statute of Limitations. One of the clearest is the Sailors and Soldiers Relief Act which can toll the statute of limitations for some active members of the military while they are in the service of our country. Tolling of the Statute of Limitations means that the time period is stopped from running. That means that some active military people could wait many years before having to file their cases. Our firm has had other types of cases where the statute of limitations has been tolled for decades while a military person is in active service.
Many states have what is called a “Discovery Rule” which means that the Statute of Limitations does not start until a person would reasonably know that they might have a liability claim. I believe many judges would rule that the widespread public dissemination of the DePuy Recall Notice of August 24, 2010 would start the clock running on the statute of limitations even if an individual person did not hear about it or know about it because the test is usually an objective test about what a reasonably informed person would know.
There is another highly complex legal rule called the “American Pipe Rule” that may be applied in some states if a class action is pending to toll the time period for an individual lawsuit for a person who would be a member of that class action. This theory should not be relied on for DePuy ASR cases because there is no viable class action that I know of. The ASR cases are coordinated for pretrial purposes in a federal multidistrict proceeding called an MDL but this is not a class action and will not toll or stop the statute of limitations from running in an individual case unless an individual case is filed for that person.
Mental incompetence can be an exception in some states that could extend the statute of limitations. For example, someone with severe Alzheimers disease might qualify in some states for an extension to the statute of limitations.
Final Advice on the Statute of Limitations for ASR Lawsuits
Every person with a DePuy ASR Hip Implant should have a detailed review of the statute of limitations done by an attorney experienced in medical product liability cases. This review should be done immediately because once the statute of limitations has run there is no way to reopen or restart it. Once the statute of limitations has run it is too late to ever bring a lawsuit for harms and injuries from the defective ASR metal on metal hip implants.

Pradaxa Breaking News, Pradaxa lawyers, Pradaxa Lawsuits, Pradaxa Bleeding

Pradaxa has warnings for excessive bleeding. Pradaxa Helpline is concerned about Pradaxa and the elderly

The Pradaxa Helpline Has Pradaxa Lawyers to Help You

   LONDON | Fri May 25, 2012 6:07am EDT

(Reuters) – Doctors and patients should be given clearer guidance on how to avoid bleeding risks when using Boehringer Ingelheim's new stroke prevention pill Pradaxa, European regulators said on Friday.

The European Medicines Agency said data continued to confirm the positive benefit-risk balance of the anticoagulant medicine, despite cases of fatal bleeding, but advice on the risks should be strengthened.

Pradaxa is the first in a new class of medicines aimed at replacing the old and problematic drug warfarin. It is designed for use after hip and knee surgery and to prevent strokes in patients with atrial fibrillation, a form of irregular heartbeat common among the elderly.

Rival drugs include Xarelto, from Bayer and Johnson & Johnson, and Eliquis, from Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pfizer.

       Pradaxa is an anticoagulant. Anticoagulants effect the clotting time of the blood. Pradaxa is described as  a prescription blood-thinning medicine used to reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots in people with atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem. With atrial fibrillation, part of the heart does not beat the way it should. This can cause blood clots to form, increasing your risk of a stroke. Pradaxa lowers the chance of blood clots forming in your body. There is a chnce of excessive bleeding on Pradaxa that can be fatal.
