The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Tracy King and people who have filed a Fentanyl Lawsuit. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on June 19th, 2012, Tracy King filed a wrongful death claim at Philadelphia’s Common Pleas Court (case no. 120602334) alleging that her sister’s death was caused by a Fentanyl pain patch. Fentanyl (brand names Duragesic, Onsolis and others) is a potent synthetic narcotic analgesic used to treat breakthrough cancer pain and is commonly used in pre-procedures as a pain reliever as well as an anesthetic. Tracy King filed the complaint on behalf of her diseased sister, Sonya Marshall. In the complaint she claims that her sister died in June 2010 and the cause of death was Fentanyl toxicity. Prior to her death she was prescribed Fentanyl.
On April 18th 2012, the US FDA reminded patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals of the importance of appropriate storage, use, application, and disposal of Fentanyl patches (including Duragesic and generic products) to prevent potential life-threatening harm from accidental exposure to the active ingredient, Fentanyl.
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of severe complications from Fentanyl, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat from Fentanyl remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
The FDA alerted the public to the appropriate use and disposal of Fentanyl patches in 2005 and 2006, following the receipt of reports of death and life-threatening adverse events related to Fentanyl overdose.
