Contaminated Steroids And Meningitis: What You NEED To Know
The highly rated Ohio attorneys at the Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC are representing individuals affected by the contaminated steroids which are causing meningitis and other serious injuries throughout the country. The national death toll from meningitis caused by the contaminated steroid shots has tragically reached 19 people already. Meningitis is an infection of the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord.
The meningitis scare began last month when people began arriving in emergency rooms complaining of headaches and other symptoms after receiving epidural injections for back pain. Patients then continued to contact doctors with headaches, fever, nausea, and stroke-like symptoms. Meningitis from steroid shots has been confirmed in 15 states, with deaths in six.
The meningitis outbreak is linked to steroid injections coming from a certain compounding center. This is one of the worst health scares in U.S. history, and it has not yet been contained. There are even calls for a criminal investigation of the manufacturer of the steroid shot.
Our most recent client who was affected by the steroid injection meningitis scare was injected with the tainted steroid and had a spinal tap, but it may still be many months before she can be sure that she will not end up with meningitis or other adverse effects. She received three separate steroid shots that came from the contaminated batch. She was smart to contact our office early so that we can carefully monitor the situation and protect her interests as the matter unfolds.
