Fiat Chrysler Pickup Recall

The latest in automobile recalls just announced is out from Fiat Chrysler.  The auto giant has put out the word it is recalling  a million North American pickup trucks with a problem in the software that is keeping the side air bags and seat belts from deploying in rollover motor vehicle incidents.  So far, Fiat Chrysler knows that one person has been killed and two people injured because of this glitch in its Dodge Ram Pickups. 

The recall includes 2013 to 2016 Ram 1500 and 2500 pickup trucks, as well as 2014 to 2016 Ram 3500 pickup trucks.  In Canada, there are around 216,007 pickups affected; in Mexico, there are about 21,668 pickups affected; and in regions outside the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) region, there are about 21,530 pickups affected. 

The software glitches occur with underbody damage/impact, so that the side air bags and seat belt pretensioner are disabled temporarily.  The vehicles can be turned off, then back on, and the restraints work again.  If you own one of these pickup trucks, fortunately Fiat Chrysler will be reprogramming your truck’s software at no charge to you.  Call your local Fiat Chrysler servicer, go to Fiat Chrysler’s website, or check with any recall letter you have received for more information on the logistics of getting your vehicle fixed.   

We urge vehicle owners who may possibly own any of the subject Fiat Chrysler pickup trucks to immediately take steps to get the matter remedied, as not doing so could prove fatal or life-changing to you and/or your loved ones.

Johnson & Johnson Will Pay Millions for Talc – Ovarian Cancer Verdicts

This firm has given the information and updates on talcum powder and its realized link to deadly ovarian cancer in women.  The latest news in the world of verdicts against talcum powder makers involves a verdict against Johnson & Johnson by a by a jury in the great state of Missouri to pay $110 million to a woman from Virginia who used Johnson & Johnson talc-based products for decades of her life and then was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  There are lawsuits pending against Johnson & Johnson in about 2,400 lawsuits, but this Missouri verdict was the largest one to come down the pike yet.  Johnson & Johnson did not properly warn customers of its talc-based products that there were cancer risks with their use for feminine hygiene.  The lady from Virginia, Lois Slemp, is unfortunately having to undergo chemotherapy treatment at the time of this giant verdict, because the cancer has spread from her ovaries to her liver.  She began using Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and Johnson & Johnson Shower to Shower Powder more than forty years prior to her 2012 ovarian cancer diagnosis.   

As we have stated in the past, research has found a startling connection between the use of talcum powder by women as intimate personal hygiene and a 24% higher chance of being stricken with ovarian cancer (Deadly female cancer), according to research doctors at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.   Others have made claims in lawsuits that the risk is even higher at 33% (Suit against talcum powder maker Johnson & Johnson).  Experts warn that particles from the powder can enter a woman’s body and leading to inflammation.  Areas of inflammation are welcome homes for cancer cells to thrive.

As also stated in the past, it is recommended that the use of talc-based powders by reconsidered by females of all ages.  Be a well-informed consumer and ask your doctor about these specific findings if you are concerned your health could be affected.  If you or a loved one has already been diagnosed with ovarian cancer possibly linked to use of talc-based powder, do not hesitate to bring questions regarding your personal situation and possible claim to the caring legal experts at Inserra Kelley Sewell, where your health and safety is priority one. 

Contaminated Devices by LivaNova (fka Sorin) Dangerous for Heart Surgery Patients

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have put out warnings about contaminated devices used in open heart surgery made with LivaNova PLC (formerly Sorin Group Deutschland GmbH).  The device is a the 3T heater-cooler devices that are used during open heart surgeries for keeping the blood circulating and the organs at set temperatures while the patient is undergoing cardiothoracic surgery.  The devices have been found to cause infections that can be dangerous and even deadly, so patients who have undergone open heart surgery are warned to look for symptoms of infection.  These include symptoms such as fever, fatigue, muscular aching, weight loss, and night sweats. 

It is vital for patients to be evaluated immediately if they fit the categories of cardiothoracic surgery patients and have experienced any of the above symptoms.  Medical providers should be contacted so that evaluation and necessary interventions can begin right away.  The CDC and FDA both made initial announcements regarding the 3T heater-coolers back in 2015 and since then have been able to make matches to bacteria from the devices to bacteria found in actual patients.  The bacteria are Mycobacterium chimaera, which come from the nontuberculous mycobacterium (NTM) species found in soil and water at times.  When it is contacted in the environment, it does not often cause sickness in humans, but when the bacterium is introduced in the surgical environment, it can cause infections that can be missed or difficult to treat.  The bacterium grow very slowly, so cultures are required and it can be months before an infection is confirmed or ruled out.  Therefore, it is important to reiterate that the medical provider should be contacted at the first hints or signs of infection, since the old adage is often true that it is better to be safe than sorry. 

If you or a loved one has experienced problems with an infection from a 3T heater-cooler device being used during cardiothoracic surgery, or any medical device, drug, or other product, consult your medical provider and please contact  Inserra Kelley Sewell, Personal Injury Attorneys to discuss your possible claim and entitlement to compensation for your damages.     

Erectile Dysfunction Medications Linked to Blindness

Erectile dysfunction drugs have become big sellers since the first one, Viagra, was approved in 1998.  Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra are enormous money makers for the drug companies that manufacture them.  What many people may not realize is that Dr. Howard Pomeranz, a neuroopthalmologist and associate professor at  Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine in New York is speaking out about the drugs’ side effects of blindness.  Dr. Pomeranz has been letting the public know that he had a patient who used the drug and found that within an hour he was did not have vision in one of his eyes and that he has been hearing of similar patient cases and published reports of people experiencing blindness after Viagra back in 2005.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) became involved and warnings were put on labels for Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra, while at the same time the drug companies downplayed the risk of permanent vision loss from the optic nerve having its blood flow shut off.  The official name for the disease is anterior ischemic optic neuropathy and it had always been linked to diseases in the body that compromised circulation, such as blood pressure problems, diabetes, and other issues.  Dr. Pomeranz reports that the FDA then required that the three major manufacturers of the drugs do in depth studies, but as of 2017 only Pfizer, the maker of Viagra, had complied.  That Pfizer study proved that those taking Viagra were at risk of developing ischemic optic neuropathy within 24 hours of taking the drug or other such erectile dysfunction drugs, which was two times the risk of those not taking these drugs.  Pfizer did update its labels but still contends that it is really not scientifically possible to state that the blindness is caused by the erectile dysfunction drugs versus other reasons and conditions, but Dr. Pomeranz contends that this eye disease is likely greatly under reported beyond the 40 or so cases Pfizer reports and the hundreds of cases on the FDA reporting database, so he is getting the word out to his fellow ophthalmologists since they are not the doctors who prescribe the drugs.  While Dr. Pomeranz does not say that patients should not use the erectile dysfunction drugs, he is contending that it is very necessary for patients and medical providers to know the risks and weigh them against the benefits.  

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a problem related to erectile dysfunction drugs, or any medical device, drug, or other product, consult your medical provider and please contact Inserra Kelley Sewell, Personal Injury Attorneys to discuss your possible claim and entitlement to compensation for your damages.
