AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Fentanyl lawsuits.
According to court documents, on January 3rd, 2013, a Polk County woman filed a lawsuit in Missouri Western District Court (case no. 6:2013cv03003) alleging her husband died from defective Fentanyl 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. In the lawsuit plaintiff claims her husband died in January 2010 after using a Fentanyl patch and the autopsy showed a lethal concentration of Fentanyl in his blood.
On August 2nd, 2012, a widow filed a lawsuit in Indiana Southern District Court (case no. 1:2012mc00083) alleging her husband, under Fentanyl prescription, died of Fentanyl overdose.
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. 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.

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. As the FDA reports, in 2009 there were 15,597 deaths involving these medications.
