In 1978, I opened Delaware’s first suburban law office to respond to the overwhelming need for legal services for the middle income consumer. The rich always could afford attorneys and the poor had free legal services. Middle income consumers always were left out in the cold. Since that time, our firm’s focus has been to help those in the middle. We’ve helped protect the rights of thousands of people in all areas of the state. I am proud of our track record and the help that we have given to middle income Delawareans.

Litigation Heats Up Over MRI’s Additives

Litigation Heats Up Over MRI’s Additives
By Eric M. Doroshow
November 11, 2008

Lawyers Weekly USA has reported that almost 400 lawsuits have been filed across the country regarding Gadolinium contrasts used in MRI imaging. This additive is used in contrast solutions to enhance the MRI results. The purpose behind the additive is to help the doctors look at blood vessels in various parts of the body

The problem is that the Gadolinium used in MRI’s causes an incurable disease called Nephrongenic Systemic Fibrosis. This debilitating disease has no cure and can cause scarring, and fibrosis of the skin or internal organs. Symptoms include red or dark patches of skin, hard patches of skin, muscle weakness, stiff joints, burning, itching and swelling of the skin. The symptoms may appear as early as 2 days after receiving the injection.

Many of this cases have been consolidated into multi-district litigation in the District of Ohio but some remain in state courts in PA and NJ. In June 2002 the FDA issued a warning about using this contrast in people suffering from kidney failure. However, the proper warnings were never given to many injured victims who had MRI tests.

If you or someone you know has had an adverse reaction after an MRI, call us immediately for a free initial consultation. You may be entitled to a significant cash award for your injuries, but time is of the essence. Contact us today at 800-632-9230.
