This litigation currently consists of 22 actions that involve injuries arising from the use of allegedly defective Watson Fentanyl patches
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than people who suffer from Fentanyl adverse events. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
As filed on August 7th 2012, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) has decided to centralize all wrongful death lawsuits involving Watson Fentanyl pain patches into the Northern District of Illinois (MDL No. 2372), assigned to the Honorable Matthew F. Kennelly for coordinated or consolidated pretrial proceedings. 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.
This litigation currently consists of 22 actions that involve injuries arising from the use of allegedly defective Watson Fentanyl patches pending in fifteen districts. All actions are wrongful death or survivor actions sharing factual questions concerning alleged defects in the design, manufacture and marketing of the Watson Fentanyl patch.

As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that alleged 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.”
On July 9th, 2012 the US FDA announced new safety measures for a class of opioid medications, including Duragesic (transdermal Fentanyl). Opioids, when prescribed by physicians to patients who should not receive them, or when used improperly or for recreational purposes, they can cause serious harm, including overdose and death.
