Drug Injury Law Firm Helping Meningitis Victims Exposed to Contaminated Steroid Injections by Massachusetts Pharmacy, New England Compounding Center

October 10, 2012 - BOSTON, MA

Kelley Bernheim Dolinsky, LLC, a national consumer safety law firm specializing in dangerous pharmaceutical litigation -- -- is pursuing personal injury lawsuits on behalf of meningitis victims around the country in Middlesex County, Massachusetts where the defendant pharmacy is headquartered.

Attorney Walter Kelley, managing partner at Kelley Bernheim Dolinsky, LLC's Boston, Massachusetts office, explained, "Health officials have traced the outbreak of a rare fungal meningitis to New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Massachusetts -- a pharmacy that distributes an injectable steroid commonly prescribed to treat back pain. Although it is not yet clear how the fungus was able to contaminate the drug, federal investigators have found at least one sealed vial of the contaminated steroid, preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate, at the company's Framingham plant."

Attorney Kelley continued, "It's sad and unfortunate that it takes a massive tragedy like this fungal meningitis outbreak to raise public awareness about the serious drug manufacturing safety problem we have in this country due to pharmaceutical compounding companies circumventing the regulatory process of the FDA by registering as a pharmacy instead of a pharmaceutical manufacturer."

Attorney Kelley continued, "Massachusetts law provides multiple viable personal injury claims for people who have been seriously injured by a prescription drug that was defectively manufactured in Massachusetts. We aim to ensure that all responsible parties are held fully accountable to the innocent victims of this deadly fungal meningitis outbreak in a timely manner."
