Multistate Fungal Meningitis Outbreak Lawsuit

If you are thinking about a Multistate Fungal Meningitis Outbreak Lawsuit the experienced attorneys at the Bruner Law Firm have the experience to help with your claim. Fungal meningitis lawsuits are being filed throughout the nation after contaminated steroid injections from New England Compounding Center were linked to hundreds of illnesses in more than a dozen states; some even resulting in death. A Multistate Fungal Meningitis Outbreak Lawsuit is one way to try and obtain justice from an inexcusable tragedy.

NECC Epidural Steroid Recall

In September of 2012, the CDC recalled three lots of preservative-free methylprednilosone acetate from NECC used in epidural steroid treatments to relieve back pain. The recalled epidural steroids were distributed to 76 facilities in 23 states. Some 14,000 people are known to have been injected with one of the contaminated steroids. Following the NECC epidural steroid recall, the company shut down production. NECC ultimately recalled all of its products and lost its operations license on October 6, 2012. The firm is now the subject of a criminal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.

How to tell if you’re infected

Commons symptoms of meningitis associated with the recalled methylprednilosone injections include:

  • Slurred speech
  • Fever
  • New headaches; exacerbation of headaches
  • Light sensitivity
  • Stiff neck
  • Increased pain, redness, or swelling at/near the place of injection
  • Weakness in numbness in limbs or other parts of the body
