Stay Away from these Medical Treatments

In the recent years, the US healthcare system has been in the spotlight due mainly to reforms aimed generally on the accessibility, cost, and quality of health care products and services. Because of the many updates and changes in the healthcare system, many consumers and patients have become more careful and inquiring about the products and services that they are getting. This inquisitive nature has lead to the rise of medical malpractice lawsuits from patients and consumers of medical products and services that have caused them injuries or other damages. Among the recent lawsuits emerging are Low T lawsuits. The FDA issued an alert on January 31, 2014 due to the increased risks of heart attack, stroke, and death to those using testosterone supplements. There have been increased promotions on the use of topical testosterone in recent years as treatment for men suffering from “Low-T”, a condition also known as hypogonadism. Research has shown that using testosterone supplements is related to increased risks of stroke, heart attack, and even death, with patients having 30 percent chances of suffering from the aforementioned ailments than those who doesn’t take testosterone hormones.

Aside from Low T lawsuits, there have been a lot of people who are hiring Risperdal lawyers. This is after Risperdal caused severe side effects in men who used the anti-psychotic drug, causing gynecomastia, a condition in which a man’s breast tissue becomes enlarged. This condition, and many others, have led those who’ve used Risperdal to file lawsuits for damages that the drug caused, and victims are seeking compensation from the manufacturer of the drug, Johnson & Johnson. Dangerous or defective drugs are not the only reason for the increase in medical malpractice lawsuits. Patients who have been operated on using the DaVinci surgical robot reported the defective design of the robot.

Many patients suffered from complications due to the tears and burns on the intestines and surrounding tissues, excessive bleeding, punctures to the blood vessels or ureters, and many other problems. Consumers should be more aware of the risks and dangers that the medications, treatments, or products may cause them. It helps to talk with a medical professional first before taking the plunge, since, as they say, “health is wealth.” When consumers or patients suffer after a medical malpractice, the consequences can be dire. Filing an injury claim can be the only way to ensure that the damages are compensated and the medical professional or product fined.
