If you have been hurt, our goal will be to prove to the jury that the defective product is responsible for your injuries. We work hard for our clients and have a track record of favorable verdicts and settlements that include compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
Did you damage the product before using it? Did you use the product in a way that it was not intended to be used? If the answers to those questions are no, chances are you have a good case. Whether a product failed to act as advertised due to poor manufacturing or a design defect, you shouldn't be left alone to deal with the consequences of someone else's failures.
When you purchase a product, the assumption is that it will work as advertised and not be a risk to your health or your life if used properly. Unfortunately, that isn't always the case. If you believe you were injured by a defective product, you have a right to seek compensation from the manufacturer. In your quest for compensation, a skilled lawyer can be a valuable asset. You can trust the North Carolina law firm of Greensboro Law Center to fight aggressively for your rights and make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
Dangerous products injure people every day, but far too few realize what their options are.
Although we regularly handle a wide variety of cases, some of the cases we are currently handling are:
- DePuy Hip Replacement Recalls
- Transvaginal Mesh Litigation
- Contaminated Steroids/Fungal Meningitis Claims
- Zimmer and NexGen knee implant litigation
The Centers for Disease Control has identified eleven deaths and more than 100 cases of Fungal Meningitis as related to Contaminated Epidural Steroid Shots. CDC is currently conducting a multi-state outbreak investigation. Steroid injections of Methylprednisolone Acetate are believed to have been tainted with a fungus. The particular type of meningitis this has caused is called fungal meningitis. Three lots of the product were distributed nationwide. The steroid solution has now been recalled and the factory’s operations have been shut down. News reports indicate that as many as 13,000 patients may have been affected. News reports link the outbreak to patients in Tennessee, Michigan, Virginia, Indiana, Florida, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina and Ohio.
A map showing current outbreak statistics is available at from the CDC at http://www.cdc.gov/hai/outbreaks/meningitis-map.html. New cases are being reported on a daily basis. Even if you are outside the area of the current reports, you may have been affected.Symptoms may include nausea or stiffness of the neck. The symptoms may be mild and include dizziness, confusion, and discomfort with bright lights. The degree to which a person reacts may depend on their immune system.
