What is Taxotere®?

Taxotere®, generically named Docetaxel, is an anti-cancer chemotherapy drug approved for the treatment of different kinds of cancer, including breast cancer. Taxotere® is manufactured by Sanofi™ and was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1996 for the treatment of metastic breast cancer.

Why Taxotere® Is Defective?

Although, temporary hair loss may be a possible side effect of chemotherapy, an alarming number of research studies show that Taxotere® can be linked to permanent hair loss. Researchers at the National Cancer Conference reported in 2014 that permanent hair loss was a side effect in 10-15% of chemotherapy patients who took Taxotere®.

Furthermore, a study by the Annals of Oncology, noted Taxotere®’s devastating effect on a patient’s quality of life.

At Goldberg Attorneys, we truly understand how devastating permanent hair loss can be.  Our law firm is here to help you.  Call us today to find out if you have claim.

Talcum Powder & Ovarian Cancer

Talcum Powder & Ovarian Cancer

Is there a link to Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer?

Baby Powder Lawsuits Filed for Ovarian Cancer

It smells nice, evokes memories of babyhood, and babies, but talcum powder has more recently been found to cause ovarian cancer when used by women for hygiene. Johnson & Johnson, a major manufacturer of talc-based baby powder and body powder, has been accused of failing to warn consumers of the risks of talcum powder. According to a recent Harvard study, women who use talcum powder in the genital or perineal region could be at a 41% higher risk for developing ovarian cancer.

“As many as 10,000 women develop ovarian cancer each year as a result of baby powder use,” says Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Daniel Cramer. Ovarian cancer is a serious disease anticipated to result in more than 14,000 deaths annually, in the United States.

The first talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuit was won against Johnson & Johnson in Federal Court in 2013.

A jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $55 million to a woman who claims talc in the company’s baby powder caused her ovarian cancer.

The verdict comes months after a jury ordered the company to pay $72 million to the family of an Alabama woman who died from ovarian cancer allegedly caused by using the company’s Baby Powder and other products which contained talc.

Metal-On-Metal Hip Replacement

METAL-ON-METAL hip replacement problems and failures are on the rise. More than a year after Johnson & Johnson issued a DePuy ASR recall for more than 90,000 potentially defective implants, new data indicates that the METAL-ON-METAL hip failure rates may be more than twice as high as prior estimates suggested.

The hip replacement lawyers at Goldberg Attorneys represent individuals throughout the United States who have experienced problems after receiving a METAL-ON-METAL hip implant.

METAL-ON-METAL hip replacements, which are a relatively new design, account for about one-third of the 250,000 hip replacements performed in recent years. They became popular due to the belief that the metal structure is more durable than other types of hip implants. However, sales have fallen recently amid concerns about problems with the design, which may cause microscopic metal particles to be shed into the body as the parts of the hip replacement rub against each other.

The FDA has issued warnings for the implanted birth control device Mirena.

The Mirena IUD has been linked to serious side effects:

  • Perforation of Uterus
  • Serious Infection or Abscess
  • Perforation of Other Organs
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • Infertility
  • Death

If you or loved one had a Mirena IUD implant and had it removed, whether by surgery or in a doctor’s office, then you may be entitled to compensation. Goldberg Attorneys are investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of users of the Mirena IUD. Mirena injuries can be extremely painful, and may impact the lives of victims and their families for years to come. Although Mirena has been promoted as a safe and reversible form of birth control, women may face an unreasonable risk of problems, such as spontaneous migration and uterine perforation.

The FDA has previously warned Bayer about the marketing of Mirena, which failed to disclose safety risks while claiming the devices could help “busy moms” with intimacy and make them “look and feel great.”

IVC Filter

IVC Filter

Injured by an IVC Filter?

Since the introduction of IVC filter in 2005, the FDA has received thousands of adverse reports involving these filters. Specifically, it was reported that the IVC filters fragment and migration in the body.

Goldberg Attorneys is filing lawsuits against the makers of the IVC filters for causing serious harm and death to people through out the country.

What is an IVC Filter?

IVC filters are small, cage-like devices that are inserted into the inferior vena cava to capture blood clots and prevent them from reaching the lungs. The inferior vena cava is the main vessel returning blood from the lower half of the body to the heart. IVC filters are frequently placed in patients at risk for pulmonary embolism (a blood clot in the lungs) when anticoagulant therapy cannot be used or is ineffective. IVC filters are designed to be permanent implants although some of these devices may have the option to be removed.

The FDA has received reports of adverse events and product problems associated with IVC filters. Types of reports include device migration, filter fracture, migration, perforation of the IVC, and difficulty removing the device. Some of these events led to adverse clinical outcomes such as:

  • Death
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Emergency removal of device
  • IVC filter migration
  • Perforation of tissue, vessels and organs
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Respiratory distress

Removal of an IVC Filter

Unless there is a very good reason to keep the IVC filter in place, the FDA now recommends the removal of retrievable IVC filters.

According to a safety communication posted by the FDA in August of 2010, IVC filters are intended for short-term placement and have caused risks when left in long term including lower limb deep vein thrombosis (DVT), filter fracture, filter migration, filter embolization and IVC perforation.

Despite FDA Warnings, Physicians Were Not Removing the Filters.

Researchers discovered only 58 out of 679 (less than 10%) retrievable IVC filters inserted were actually removed. Other results discovered majority of the filters remained in patients longer than medically necessary with the following results:

  • 3 percent failed attempts at removing the filters
  • 8 percent had venous thrombotic events.

Approximately 25 of those events were pulmonary embolism.

If you or a loved one has had an ICV Filter and experienced complications, please contact or call Goldberg Attorneys (800) 600-6014.
