Tainted Epidural Steroid Injection Update
As more Virginia residents have become seriously ill with meningitis associated with tainted epidural steroid injections, Gentry Locke has assembled a diverse team of professionals to handle these cases. While our clients are busy recovering from fungal meningitis to which they should have never been exposed, our attorneys and experts are devoting great attention to the developing details and the individual circumstances of each case. We have consciously chosen to carefully review all of these issues in order to develop a comprehensive strategy for recovery and success before filing lawsuits.
Facts are continuing to develop. Gentry Locke attorneys are focusing on: (1) the conditions at the New England Compounding pharmacy in Massachusetts, (2) results from official investigations, and (3) questions as to why local medical facilities would purchase drugs from an unaccredited pharmacy producing thousands of doses of medication per batch in a facility surrounded by a garbage recycling facility. We have conducted an aerial visual inspection of the facility, the results of which raise serious concerns as to how conditions at the “pharmacy” may have impacted contamination.
