The deadline for submitting claims in the bankruptcy of New England Compounding Center (NECC), the compounding pharmacy responsible for exposing thousands to contaminated steroid injections, is January 15, 2014.
Unfortunately, many people who received tainted NECC injections continue to suffer from serious symptoms but have not been diagnosed with a fungal infection. Because of the time-sensitive nature of the NECC Bankruptcy Claims Process, it is essential to receive a definitive diagnosis in order to pursue the most adequate compensation based on personal injury. Hundreds of people are still sick from the following fungal infections caused by contaminated NECC drugs:
- fungal meningitis
- spinal/paraspinal infection
- epidural abscess
- vertebral osteomyelitis
- septic arthritis
With the impending claim filing deadline, we strongly advise those who have been exposed to contaminated NECC drugs and who continue to manifest symptoms to make every effort to follow up with doctors in pursuit of a clear diagnosis.
The dedicated team at Andrews and Thornton encourages patients and loved ones who have been affected by tainted NECC steroid injections to contact us for a free case evaluation at www.andrewsthornton.com or toll free at 1-800-644-1734.
