Gadolinium Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Many people have MRIs prescribed to help in diagnosing health problems or injuries. During this imaging procedure, some patients are given a contrasting agent to help enhance the details of the images. One contrasting agent is gadolinium, which may cause serious health issues in patients that have undergone MRIs with contrast.

Gadolinium is a natural metal that has fluorescent and magnetic properties, used commonly as a contrast agent for MRIs. Patients are given gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) before they undergo a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) procedure to improve the detailed images of the internal organs and tissues. Unfortunately, gadolinium can be stored in the body and is not easily eliminated. It has been known for years that those with impaired renal systems should not take GBCAs. When accumulated at higher levels, this metal can have serious and long-term health effects, risks that were not disclosed to many patients.

Symptoms of Gadolinium Deposition Disease

If taking GBCAs for MRIs leaves deposits of gadolinium in the body and brain, it can cause gadolinium deposition disease. This is a condition that refers to chronic health issues caused by ingesting gadolinium. Some of the gadolinium deposition disease symptoms that may be noticeable by the patient include:

  • Eyesight and hearing problems
  • Headaches
  • Unexplained pain or burning in joints
  • Digestive issues
  • Respiratory problems
  • Tight feeling in feet and hands
  • Cognitive impairments, such as confusion or loss of mental clarity

If you or a loved one have had recent MRIs using GBCAs and experienced symptoms of gadolinium deposition disease, contact us at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law today. If you have chronic health issues caused by this medical agent and were not advised of the risks, you may be eligible to pursue a claim for compensation.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
