San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 17, 2013
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 Nexium lawsuits.
According to court documents, on December 31st, 2012, 512 plaintiffs filed a product liability lawsuit in California Southern District Court (case no. 3:2012cv03083) alleging they suffered bone problems from their use of Nexium. Nexium, manufactured by AstraZeneca, is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) prescribed for the treatment of heartburn, acid-reflux, and inflammation of the esophagus. In the lawsuit plaintiffs claim that, after taking Nexium, they suffered various bone problems, including osteoporosis, bone deterioration and fractures.
On December 6th, 2012, 39 lawsuits alleging Nexium caused bone fractures were consolidated in the Multidistrict Litigation MDL 2404 (Central District of California) by the U.S. Judicial Panel. Plaintiffs allege that Nexium may cause a variety of bone ailments —in particular, osteoporosis, loss of bone density, and bone fractures— and that AstraZeneca failed to adequately warn of these potential adverse side effects.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in case of alleged Nexium severe complications. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Nexium lawsuits. "For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
In September 2012, the FDA required safety labeling changes to be made to 10 proton-pump inhibitors including Nexium. The concern is that they may increase the risk of diarrhea be associated with Clostridium difficile, especially in hospitalized patients. Clostridium difficile is a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection.
AttorneyOne.com has further information on Nexium lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
