Call your federal legislators!

The U.S. House Judiciary just voted a bill out of committee that would gut nearly every type of mass legal action brought in the U.S. to vindicate large groups of individuals’ rights against corporate wrongdoing, including the enforcement of civil rights, as well as consumer, employee, and investor protections. The new Administration has already blocked the Executive Branch of government from doing its work. Agencies such as the FDA, Consumer Product Safety Commission no longer have a mandate to enforce laws that protect public health and safety.  Now, Congress is moving to make sure that when you are harmed, you won’t have access to the federal courts to hold wrongdoers accountable.  Make no mistake — this is an onslaught against consumers on every front. Here is the statement of the American Association for Justice (of which every lawyer in our firm is a member): […]

Proton Pump Inhibitors and Kidney Failure

Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) like Nexium, Prilosec, and Prevacid, are medications used to treat heartburn, indigestion, and acid reflux.  PPIs work by blocking the enzyme in the wall of the stomach that produces acid.  Recent studies show that patients who regularly take PPIs are at risk of acute and chronic kidney disease and kidney failure, which can cause serious injury or death.  Symptoms of kidney disease include:  fever, bloody urine, nausea or vomiting, weight gain, and skin rash.  People with these symptoms may be experiencing kidney failure and should seek medical treatment immediately. If you or someone you know suffered acute interstitial nephritis, acute kidney disease/failure, chronic kidney disease/failure, or transplant/dialysis after taking a PPI drug, you might be entitled to bring a lawsuit. The lawyers at Johnson Johnson & Schaller have several decades of experience successfully representing Oregonians injured by toxic products, pharmaceuticals, […]
