Attorney Interview: Gadolinium in MRIs

UPDATE: Hickey Law Firm would love to help you and represent you because of this horrible substance that is being used. However, the federal court presiding over litigation from this has issued a ruling which makes that nearly impossible.

The defendants (including manufacturers and distributors of Gadolinium-Based Contrast Agents, “GBCAs”) filed a motion to exclude expert testimony that GBCAs cause injuries in people who had healthy kidney function prior to their exposure to GBCAs. The court granted the defendants’ motion. In doing so, the court referred to the Medical Imaging Drugs Advisory Committee convened by the Food and Drug Administration, which concluded that the medical and scientific evidence does not establish that GBCAs cause Gadolinium Deposition Disease (GDD). Importantly, the court stated that “every regulatory and medical organization to consider the question has found insufficient evidence to conclude that GBCAs cause GDD.” This order had, and will continue to have, a serious and negative effect on the likelihood of success for many potential Gadolinium toxicity cases.

For this reason, we are unable to represent you with your Gadolinium case.

Some patients who receive MRIs ingest gadolinium, a material that helps make the MRI results easier for doctors to read. Unfortunately, many patients have reported that the material has built up in their system, which can be toxic. They've experienced pain, muscle weakness, skin lesions, hair loss, cognitive issues, and many other symptoms that can last for years or a lifetime.
