Wilmington Alere INRatio PT/INR Professional Test Strips Lawyers

The Rhine Law Firm, P.C. handles liability cases when clients seek justice for side effects and injuries suffered as a result of using medical products which have been prescribed due to misdiagnosis or are found to be dangerous or simply defective. The Rhine Law Firm, P.C. is currently undertaking a case against Alere, the manufacturer of the Alere INRatio PT/INR professional test strips. Since its release, Alere INRatio PT/INR professional test strips have resulted in severe side effects and injuries in numerous cases. Those who think they may qualify for the Alere lawsuit are advised to contact the Rhine Law Firm, P.C. immediately for more information and assistance.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) upgraded the Alere INRatio PT/INR professional test strips recall into a Class 1 recall, because of the dangerous side effects it has caused in patients. Those who were still using this monitoring system were advised to stop using this product immediately. Due to inaccurate INR values from the device, many patients have gone through excessive bleeding complications which have endangered their lives. If you are a victim, then you may be eligible to file an Alere lawsuit against Alere, Inc.

The recall came into effect after many patients complained that the INR values shown by these devices were significantly different from those of local laboratory plasma tests. This indicated the devices were inaccurate and therefore not safe to use, since a patient could think that their health condition was stable when, in fact, they had a serious - or even fatal - medical problem.

Alere recalled the Alere INRatio PT/INR professional test strips monitoring systems because many patients were getting a near-therapeutic INR or therapeutic value when they actually had non-therapeutic values. The INR values recorded by these strips were 3.1-12.2 lower than laboratory plasma readings. This led to serious medical repercussions for patients, including 6 excessive bleeding cases and 3 deaths as a result of excessive bleeding.

Do You Have a Legal Claim?

Are you a victim of these substandard devices that were deployed in the market without proper analysis, research, and accuracy, or is there anyone you know who has been affected by serious medical conditions after relying on the Alere INRatio PT/INR professional test strip readings? Then you may have the right to sue the company for negligence and failing to inform patients in advance about the device's defects.

The best thing to do, if you are a victim, is to file an Alere lawsuit against the company. In order to file the case against the company, you need a good team of North Carolina personal injury attorneys who have a solid track record in national litigation against drug companies. If your legal claim is successful, you may be compensated by Alere, Inc. The compensation may include rehabilitation costs, loss of income, additional medical costs, as well as compensation for a loved one if they lost their life.

The Rhine Law Firm, P.C. is one of the firms currently evaluating and assessing Alere claims nationwide. We are in the process of filing Alere lawsuits against the manufacturer for failure to inform patients about the possible repercussions of poor readings by the device, lack of proper research about the device's functionality, and even negligence. We are ready to follow up all cases on behalf of the victims and ensure that if the trial goes through, they get compensated.

If you have suffered from medical complications such as cerebral hemorrhage, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, spinal hematoma, kidney or renal bleeding, and cases of uncontrolled bleeding, such as continuous nose bleeding and body injuries that can't stop bleeding, then contact the Rhine Law Firm, P.C. immediately for evaluation of your case. We are in the process of filing lawsuits on behalf of other victims, so there is no need to hesitate. We will handle the case in a professional and open manner by informing you about how the case unfolds.
