You May Face Uncertain Risks With a Gadolinium Injection

Mar 4, 2008
If you or a loved one have any history of kidney problems and were recently injected with gadolinium for an MRI scan, you have a right to file a lawsuit with an appropriate attorney. In this type of diagnosis, kidney problems will raise your risk of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF). Gadolinium side effects to look for tend to include thickening of the skin, connective tissue, muscles, and/or organs; other symptoms are joint stiffness, yellow spots on the eyes, bone pain, burning, itching, skin lesions, and discolored skin spots. Very recent FDA requirements say that this type of drug, with potentially harmful side effects, must be labeled with a black-box warning.

Your kidneys, if they function properly, will be able to flush gadolinium out of your system soon after your doctor injects it. While there is no known cure for NSF, one way you can treat it is to go back to your doctor, then ask for a sample of your blood to be exposed to ultraviolet light and injected back into your bloodstream. If you were given an MRA scan instead of an MRI, you may want to ask your doctor what type of dye was used to diagnose you and if it has been approved for an MRA.

When searching gadolinium lawyers, you should find at least two or three ideal candidates for an interview. This will help determine who has the most relevant experience to bring your case to a speedy closure and gives you the best chance at full compensation allowed by your state's laws. These laws also give you specific deadlines to file your claim, so you should check them to make sure you are not too late and take this action as soon as possible. One advantage that will likely be available to you is that you will be charged contingency fees, which only depend on the overall success of your case and are not up-front.

NSF is a very rare condition, which currently has only several hundred cases worldwide. This means that it can be difficult to diagnose and that you have many challenges before you when it comes to finding the right gadolinium lawyers as well as the health care you need. It is unpredictable exactly when NSF will pose a threat to your life and future, so you should not make any hesitation on what you do for your recovery.

Take gadolinium side effects seriously. You and your loved ones have much at stake.
