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 & Ligori 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.

Ligori & Ligori 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 & Ligori.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
