Injectafer Lawsuit Attorneys

Helping Clients Hold Drug Makers Accountable

A popular prescription intravenous (IV) iron supplement known as Injectafer is currently at the center of a swarm of lawsuits concerning potentially dangerous side effects. Patients using Injectafer have developed hypophosphatemia (HPP) in connection with the use of the drug. HPP is a dangerous and potentially deadly condition in which a patient’s blood has abnormally low phosphate levels.

The company responsible for Injectafer, Luitpold Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is being challenged by plaintiffs who allege they were not properly warned that HPP was a possible side effect of using the drug. In many cases, plaintiffs are seeking compensation including cash rewards and coverage for medical expenses.

If you or a loved one were injured as a result of using Injectafer, Oliver Law Group, P.C. would like to hear from you. We can help you fight for the fair and just compensation you deserve at this time. For more information about how we can help, schedule afree initial consultation with our attorneys today.

Why Are There Lawsuits about Injectafer?

Back in 2016, researchers found that patients who received injections of FCM (the iron that Injectafer uses) were at a greater risk of developing HPP. In one study, the incidence of this condition was measured as high as 45.5 percent of patients, about 32 percent of whom experience severe HPP. This is in comparison to patients who were treated another type of injectable supplement, where the incidence of HPP was measured at 4 percent.

Another study in the Journal of Clinical Investigation demonstrated a similar trend among patients treated with FCM and those treated with ferumoxide. The incidence of HPP in the former group was much higher than in the latter.

Despite the risk of death, severe or persistent HPP is not a listed side effect of the medication. Lawsuits are now being filed against the makers of Injectafer, alleging that there weren’t enough warnings about the risk of HPP.

The most severe potential side effect of Injectafer is HPP, but it is not the only potential side effect.
