Stem Cell Class Action Lawsuits
Stem cell clinics are under fire for harming patients with unapproved and unsafe injections. In many cases, the victims were misled by false advertising and paid tens of thousands of dollars for treatments that ultimately led to them suffering severe injury, infections, or even death.
What is the Risk?
- Bacteria contamination in shots
- Worsening of pre-existing diseases
- Kidney failure
Stem Cell Lawsuit Settlements
Many lawsuits against stem cell clinics have ended in financial settlements to patients who were injured. For example, in 2015, two women who suffered blindness or vision loss after receiving stem cell injections in their eyes received settlements from U.S. Stem Cell Inc.
Justice Dept. Files Lawsuit Against U.S. Stem Cell
In May 2018, the FDA and the Justice Department filed lawsuits against U.S. Stem Cell and California Stem Cell Treatment Center Inc. because they were illegally advertising dangerous stem cell treatments for unapproved medical conditions.
FDA Warning for Stem Cell Clinics
In November 2018, StemGenex of San Diego received a warning letter because the FDA was concerned that patients were at risk of severe injury or death. The company’s stem cell shots were made “in a facility with significant manufacturing violations” and the stem cell injections were being illegally advertised for unapproved treatments.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm in Texas, but our lawyers are not currently filing a class action lawsuit against stem cell clinics. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits for people who were injured by severe side effects of stem cell shots.
About Class Actions
Class actions can be useful in certain circumstances, such as when a lot of people nationwide are seeking refunds. However, class actions can also have major disadvantages, especially for people who have severe injuries from dangerous medical procedures or treatments.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
If you decide to file an individual lawsuit against the stem cell clinic that harmed you or your family member, our lawyers may be able to help you recover significant financial compensation. You may be entitled to payment for your pain and suffering, ongoing disabilities, lost income, wrongful death of a loved one, and more.
