Dr Shezad Malik Law Firm is investigating the link between new diabetes drugs Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR for causing severe heart failure and death.
How common is Heart Failure?
According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, about 5.7 million people in the United States are living with heart failure and the number is growing. People who are most at risk are those over 65 years old, African Americans, people who are overweight, those who have diabetes and people who have had a heart attack. Men are more likely than women to develop heart failure.
Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy subsidiary first announced a nationwide DePuy ASR metal hip recall in 2010 after alarming reports of premature failure of their blockbuster line of metal hip implants.
After several thousands were filed, DePuy announced a global settlement in 2013 and then again in 2015.
Now they have announced the latest DePuy ASR settlement to include those injured folks who were implanted with a defective metal DePuy ASR hip and had a hip revision before February 15, 2017.
DePuy ASR Hip Failure Problem
According to experts half a million Americans have had hip replacement surgery and may have received a metal-on-metal hip implant like Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy ASR hip implant. Over 30,000 DePuy ASR hips were implanted in the U.S. prior to the 2010 recall.
If you received a DePuy ASR hip replacement and had to undergo a hip revision surgery since March 2015 due to one of the following problems, you may have a legal claim:
- Failure of the metal on metal hip implant requiring early replacement
- Dislocated Hip
- Metallosis or metal poisoning with chromium or cobalt
- Tissue surrounding the implant
- Non-cancerous tumors or pseudotumors around the hip implant
Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit has recalled its blockbuster hernia repair mesh medical device from the market worldwide, after it was found to cause severe side effects and surgical revisions.

The giant agricultural chemical and herbicide producer Monsanto has come under fire over its blockbuster weed killer Roundup.
Roundup lawsuits are being filed nationwide as Monsanto is exposed to an increasing number of product liability and personal injury claims over the popular weed killer.
The lawsuits allege that the active ingredient glyphosate used in the product caused farmers, landscapers, golf course and other agricultural workers to face an increased risk of cancer.
Allegations: Monsanto Roundup linked to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma

$70 Million Talcum Powder Jury Verdict Against Johnson and Johnson
A St. Louis jury recently hammered Johnson and Johnson and announced a $70 million talcum powder ovarian cancer verdict, in the third talcum powder ovarian cancer case to go to trial.
J&J Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Link
Medical researchers and jurors agree, talcum powder use linked to deadly ovarian cancer in women.
Deborah Giannecchini, 62, used Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) baby powder for feminine hygiene for more than four decades until her diagnosis with ovarian cancer three years ago.
Many hip and knee surgery patients develop bacterial infections of their implants, leading to painful re-do surgeries, long term antibiotic use and in severe cases amputation because of overwhelming infection.
There are many causes for this, including patient and surgical factors and some experts speculate that it may be related to the bacteria in the operative room and hospital, since it is impossible to make the surgical room and hospital completely free of bacteria.
Now, a new source of surgical infections may be a possibility. 3M and their Arizant Healthcare subsidiary are exposed to personal injury and product liability lawsuits over hip and knee replacement infections that may be caused by Bair Hugger warming blankets.
