Lawsuit Claims Enbrel Caused Cancer

Lawsuit Claims Enbrel Caused Cancer

One patient is suing Immunex, Pfizer, Wyeth, and some distributors of the arthritis drug, claiming the drug caused cancer, reports say.

The patient, Wayne Stone Sr., is suing with the claim that Enbrel gave him lymphoma. He also claimed that drugmakers hid Embrel side effecte from physicians and patients. According to reports, he says he was cancer-free and in good health prior to receiving Enbrel injections for his rheumatoid arthritis; now he says he is disabled.

Reports say Stone says that within 180 days of its approval by the FDA 30 serious infections and six deaths occurred. Reports say the suit alleges that the companies failed to note such known serious side effects as lupus, MS, optic neuritis, polymyostitis, swelling of the brain, meningitis, encephalitis, sepsis and death.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
