Kimberly (name changed to protect client), age 57, had been diagnosed with cervical myelopathy, a condition of extreme pressure on the spine. However, after paying a visit to her primary care physician several years later, the physician noticed a change and diagnosed her with hyper-reflexia and clonus in both of her legs. The physician did not refer her to a specialist, and over the next several months, her condition worsened to the point where she was immobile and had to be cared for 24-hours a day in a nursing home. Kimberly underwent necessary therapy and recovered almost completely. Six months later, Kimberly found herself at the emergency room after falling down the stairs due to a weak grip and an unsteady walk. A neurologist, ordered an MRI for Kimberly’s neck. However, the neurologist never reviewed the MRI results, so Kimberly was not evaluated as a surgical candidate. An expert testified on Kimberly’s behalf that surgery, if provided, would have had a 70-80% chance of halting the progression of the disease. It was successfully proven that the doctors were negligent. Our team of medical malpractice attorneys were able to secure a settlement of $5,700,000 for Kimberly and her family.

Vioxx and Celebrex are both drugs marketed for the treatment of osteoarthritis acute pain conditions. After the drugs were released on the market, several studies returned findings of increased risks of heart attack and stroke in patients taking these drugs. In April 2002, the FDA issued a warning regarding the increased risks of stroke and heart attack associated with these drugs. Following the safety risks associated with Vioxx, its manufacturer Merck, pulled the drug from the market. Celebrex continues to be sold. Our legal team at the Pintas & Mullins Law Firm has won millions of dollars in settlements for our clients who were injured by Vioxx and Celebrex.
