I am thinking of speaking with a New Jersey personal injury attorney about injuries I believe were sustained from my contact solution. How do I get started?
Contact lens solution maker Bausch and Lomb is allegedly facing hundreds of lawsuits stemming from its Renu MoistureLoc product. If you are one of the thousands of contact-wearers who suffered severe eye injuries or infection after using Renu MoistureLoc, a New Jersey personal injury attorney can help you file a civil lawsuit against the product maker, who is responsible for protecting consumers from harm.
Beginning in 2007, victims have been submitting their claims to federal courts for review, particularly in light of the product’s recall. As your New Jersey personal injury attorney will also describe, the Centers for Disease Control confirmed over 130 potential cases of severe eye infection.
What do I need to know about Renu MoistireLoc lawsuits before meeting with my New Jersey personal injury lawyer?
Your New Jersey personal injury attorney will need to review your medical records and invoices at your initial intake meeting. In order to prevail in a potential civil lawsuit against Bausch and Lomb, you must prove that the product was unreasonably dangerous or did not contain an adequate warning of the risk of harm. In order for your personal injury lawyer to have the potential to prevail on your behalf, you should be able to prove that you sustained injuries similar to other Renu MoistureLoc victims, including:
- Fusarium keratitis infection;
- Severe eye irritation and redness;
- Corneal transplant.
As your New Jersey personal injury attorney will explain further, the CDC revealed that alleged problems with MoistureLoc were not linked to poor eye hygiene or other issues caused by the consumer. Instead, the product allegedly failed to disinfect and clean contacts as promised on the label, which your New Jersey personal injury attorney will explain exposes the company to liability under federal and state laws of product liability.
