Nexium Drug Injury Lawyer

NEXIUM, PRILOSEC & PREVACID LAWSUITS

CALL OUR ATLANTA DANGEROUS DRUG LAWYERS: (678)-846-6900

Recent studies have shown that patients who have taken Proton Pump Inhibitor medications such as Nexium, Prilosec, & Prevacid are at high risk for chronic kidney disease. Individuals who have developed chronic kidney disease or other severe conditions after taking these medications are eligible to pursue monetary compensation by filing a lawsuit.

Our Atlanta dangerous drug attorneys at Schneider Hammers are highly experienced in handling cases related to dangerous drugs. While we believe that medications and treatment are intended to help individuals suffering from health issues, we also believe that negligence and other pharmaceutical errors can cause serious injuries, and that is why we work hard to protect the rights of victims.

COMMON HEALTH ISSUES LINKED TO USE OF SUCH DRUGS

According to reports, concerns about such medications reach back to earlier than 2006. However, new results now prove that the risk of kidney failure is higher than medical experts had previously thought. Such drugs have been the subject of concern over:

  • Increased risks of chronic kidney disease
  • Increased risks of heart attack
  • Increased risks of bone fracture
  • Increased risks of low magnesium levels or hypomagnesemia

COMMON SIDE EFFECTS

These Proton Pump Inhibitors are known to increase the risks of acute kidney injuries in patients who already suffered kidney disease and in people without any history of kidney damage. Chronic kidney disease, also referred to as “chronic renal failure,” is caused when repeated damage or stress to the kidneys results in the inability for metabolic products and toxins to be removed or filtered from the blood stream.
Symptoms of chronic kidney disease include:

  • Fatigue
  • Irregular blood electrolyte levels
  • Fluid collection in the lungs
  • Irregular heart rhythm
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Deficiency of urine production
  • High blood pressure
  • Edema or fluid retention

Summary

I was involved in a vehicle accident August 15, 2012. When the accident happened I called another large firm in the Atlanta area. Eventually my case was referred to Mr. Jason Schneider. Once Mr. Schneider received my case everything began to change and I felt like he was working in my favor. Mr. Schneider did an excellent job of dealing with the insurance company and getting them to pay what was owed to me. Mr. Schneider helped me when my situation became an emergency. He made sure I understood what would happen with my case financially if I went ahead with the emergency surgery. The surgery would basically take all the money that the insurance would pay and I may still owe some money. In the end I was surprised to receive an email a year later saying that I had a checking waiting for me at Mr. Schneider’s office. I had completely accepted the fact that I would not receive anything but my back would be somewhat better. If you are searching for an attorney who is going to work in your favor and make sure you know what’s going on with your case I suggest you call Mr. Jason Schneider right now.
