Recently, the FDA has issued its strongest warning regarding high amounts of bacteria associated with the application of certain ultrasound gels and lotions. Based upon the currently available information, it is reasonably deduced that these ultrasound lotions have caused some serious infections.
Our firm has extensive medical malpractice lawsuit experience as well as handling medical malpractice related to defective and dangerous medical products. Not all personal injury law firms have medical malpractice experience and even fewer have our years and level of experience with the subject matter of defective medical product claims and lawsuits.
The presence of infectious material consisting of bacteria found in the topical gel is of great concern because of course the gel is supposed to reduce or prevent infection. Not cause it.
The infected or tainted topical gel is often time used at or near surgical sites, sutures and other open or recently closed and healing wounds, thereby allowing for the possibility of deeper and more vulnerable access of bacteria to infect or reach the interior of the body at time of illness or medical care and treatment which may make the patient vulnerable to a more serious medical consequence.
If you or a family member have been injured, or have a serious infection due to a dangerous ultrasound gel, then please give us a call. We will discuss your legal options and explain them to you in a free initial consultation. Your communication will be kept confidential.
