San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2012

The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than people who filed a Fentanyl Lawsuit. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.

As revised on October 4th, 2012 by the FDA, West-Ward Pharmaceuticals Fentanyl 50 mcg/mL shortages are reported. Fentanyl (brand names Duragesic, Onsolis and others) is a potent synthetic narcotic analgesic used to treat breakthrough cancer pain and is commonly used in pre-procedures as a pain reliever as well as an anesthetic. According to the FDA report the reason for the shortage is the demand increase for the drug.

As filed on August 7th 2012, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) has decided to centralize all wrongful death lawsuits involving Watson Fentanyl pain patches into the Northern District of Illinois (MDL No. 2372) assigned to the Honorable Matthew F. Kennelly for coordinated or consolidated pretrial proceedings.

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of severe adverse events from Fentanyl, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat from Fentanyl remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”

According to court documents, on January 3rd, 2012, a California man, Jose Campuzano filed a lawsuit (case no 120100086) at the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas alleging that his wife, Charlene Manzo, died as a result of using a Fentanyl pain patch.
