It has been nearly two years since AM2 PAT, Inc., (also known as Sierra Pre-Filled) manufactured the heparin syringes contaminated with the bacteria Serratia marcescens and sold those syringes to unsuspecting recipients, resulting in severe and debilitating illness. Persons injured by the contaminated syringes may be running out of time to file a heparin lawsuit against AM2 PAT, Inc., and other responsible parties, because in some jurisdictions around the country, there is a two-year time limit for filing this type of lawsuit. In fact, some victims of the contaminated heparin syringes will lose the right to file a lawsuit as early as November 2009. If you became ill as a result of using one of the contaminated heparin syringes, it is urgent you take steps immediately to preserve your right to recover compensation for your injuries.
Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. has been selected by the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, to act as Liaison Counsel on behalf of all victims of the contaminated heparin syringes who have filed a lawsuit against AM2 PAT, Inc., in Chicago, Illinois, where the company is based. As Liaison Counsel, our law firm assists the court in coordinating the litigation against AM2 PAT, Inc., and others in Cook County. The plaintiffs in these cases reside in Illinois, Florida and Texas, where the majority of the contaminated syringes were distributed.
In addition to representing the majority of plaintiffs who have filed a lawsuit in Cook County against AM2 PAT, Inc., Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. has also investigated and identified additional companies beyond AM2 PAT, Inc., involved in the distribution of the contaminated heparin syringes. We are pursuing claims against these companies, such as Health Delivery Management, LLC (doing business as Home Infusion Solutions), and Medical Suppliers of the Americas, Inc., to ensure that our clients receive the maximum recovery from all responsible parties.
If you became ill as a result of using the contaminated heparin syringes distributed by AM2 PAT, Inc., it is urgent that you act immediately to protect your legal rights. If you would like to discuss your claim with a lawyer from Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. please contact us.
