The FDA has expressed concern and alerted certain manufacturers about a cluster of ultrasound gel infections due to the ultrasound gel product being contaminated with bacteria.
Although you or a loved one may have been injured due to the bacterial infection that resulted from the application of an unsafe topical ultrasound gel, each case is unique and must be investigated and evaluated based upon its own facts and circumstances.
The Winston Law firm is well equipped to investigate, make settlement demands, and as needed to litigate complex medical product claims.
Medical records may or may not tell the whole story. Infectious disease consults may or may not have identified the topical ultrasound gel as the reason for the bacterial infection. Perhaps the identity of the manufacturer of the ultrasound gel cannot be determined. Documents, records, medical reports, and consultations, the quality of proof, may vary.
Because of the variety of fact patterns and many different possible pieces of evidence involved, there are a lot of moving parts to this kind of defective unsafe medical product type of claim, and generally speaking, the earlier an Ultrasound Gel Infection Attorney is consulted the better.
If you or a loved one reasonably thinks that there has been a serious bacterial infection due to having had an ultrasound that used an unsafe ultrasound gel then we are available to discuss this with you.
