New England Compounding Center Meningitis Lawsuit

Our law firm has been contacted by victims of the meningitis outbreak linked to epidural steroid shots, and we are gathering evidence that can be used in lawsuits against the steroid manufacturer, New England Compounding Center (NECC) for personal injury or wrongful death. Contact our attorneys for a free consultation here.  They represent meningitis victims nationwide. In cases like these, they usually do not file a class action lawsuit, but file individual lawsuits.  Individual lawsuits result in more money for their clients. Our attorneys recently won over $40 million for clients injured by another medical product. Fred also won $3,000,000 for a family whose loved one died from an infectious disease.

At least 119 patients who received epidural steroid injections made by NECC developed fungal meningitis (Aspergillus and Exserohilum). Most cases are from Exserohilum. Several of these people had strokes and cases of septic arthritis have also been confirmed.

Tragically, at least 11 people have died from the NECC steroids, most of them in Tennessee. Families can contact Fred regarding wrongful death lawsuits against New England Compounding Center.

States with CDC-confirmed outbreak victims include the following:

Florida: 4 cases
Indiana: 12 cases
Maryland: 8 cases, including 1 wrongful death
Michigan: 25 cases, including 2 wrongful deaths
Minnesota: 3 cases
New Jersey: 1 case
North Carolina: 2 cases
Ohio: 1 case
Tennessee: 39 cases, including 6 wrongful deaths
Virginia: 24 cases, including 1 wrongful death

Our attorneys have won money for clients in each of these states.

NECC has recalled all of its products, including Methylprednisolone Acetate Injection, the product linked to this outbreak, due to possible contamination with fungus. So far, Exserohilum and Aspergillis have been found in patients.
