Urgent Exactech Recall of Defective Hip Liner

Exactech Recall Lawsuit; Connexion GXL Hip Replacement Liner

Exactech, a Florida based medical device manufacturer, has issued an FDA Exachtech recall of a number of its medical devices. The recall list includes:

  • Optetrak
  • Optetrak Logic
  • Truliant knee replacement products
  • Vantage ankle replacement products
  • Connexion GXL Hip Liner

The hip implant recalls are prompted by the plastic in these products wearing out much faster than expected and causing the devices to fail. Most of these products were marketed to last 15 to 20 years but are failing much earlier.

The failure leads to pain and complications that usually require additional revision surgery to correct the problems caused by these defective products. Exactech lawsuits are being filed for victims injured by the recalled products.

“Enhanced” Polyethylene Wears Out Causing Bone Damage and Potential Hip Replacement

Exactech uses a special type of polyethylene in its products known as UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene). Exactech claimed that this “enhanced polyethylene” enabled its products to wear less and last longer than the standard polyethylene used by other orthopedic implant manufacturers. The opposite has proven true.

The industry standard for orthopedic implants is cross-linked polyethylene. Cross-linked plastic is treated with gamma or electron beam irradiation, creating harder, stronger, and more wear-resistant plastic.

Vitamin E was added to the material in the mid-2000s, further improving hip liner longevity. This design has been patented, leading some manufacturers, such as Exactech, to design their own version of this plastic to avoid paying patent fees.

This is where Exactech’s Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene comes into play. Exactech created this as a way of saving money. However, due to poor manufacturing, the actual resulting polyethylene was not treated the way the patented cross-linked polyethylene was during production.

This resulted in the existence of free radicals on the plastic’s surface, making it more susceptible to oxidation. The oxidation then led to knee implant failure and hip implant failure. Thus leading to hip replacement complications and knee replacement complications.

Exactech’s Cost-Cutting Measures Lead to Critical Hip Replacement Failures

Exactech claimed that the product’s packaging caused early oxidation. However, the product is meant to be resistant to oxidation since it will still encounter oxygen while implanted inside the body.

The failure of this plastic, and by association- Exactech products, is the result of cutting corners to save money. This could have been avoided had Exactech used the patented cross-linked polyethylene that has proven to be highly successful in orthopedic implants.

Instead, countless individuals suffered harm and had to undergo a hip replacement simply to save the company a couple of bucks.

Many patients have to undergo a revision hip implant surgery and a revision total knee revision surgery. The cost-cutting measures created range of motion problems, soft tissue problems, and diminishing quality of life for many.

Exactech Connexion GXL Hip liner lawsuit

Exactech’s Connexion GXL hip implant is a medical device used in total hip replacements. It is a “metal on plastic” hip implant featuring a polyethylene plastic acetabular liner. These implants are failing due to the polyethylene liners deteriorating.

The deterioration exposes the metal, causing the metal components within the implant to rub together and break down prematurely.

Studies by orthopedic surgeons of the Exactech Connexion GXL liner published in medical journals have shown that this defective liner is prone to early failure.

When the plastic wears out, it causes severe bone damage called osteolysis, which often requires hip liner replacement surgery.

The Yost Legal Group is filing hip replacement lawsuits for individuals across the country. If you require a revision surgery of your joint replacement device, protect your rights by filing a lawsuit.

Symptoms of the Device Failure include:

  • Difficulty walking
  • Loosening of the implant
  • Joint Stiffness
  • Swelling and inflammation
  • Possible bone degeneration: osteolysis
  • Extreme Pain

High Failure Rates Lead to FDA Recall

In June 2021, Exactech recalled the Connexion GXL liner. This was because the medical community had concerns about its high failure rates from wear, which were leading to severe osteolysis.

This recall affected roughly 90,000 patients with the Connexion GXL Liner. Exactech also sent doctors an “urgent communication” letter warning about the higher failure rates.

In fact, Exactech recommended that Connexion GXL patients follow up with their doctor if they had received their hip implant in the last six years and had not had a follow appointment in the past 12 months.

Total knee replacement surgery

Optetrak, Optetrak Logic, and Truliant Knee Implants

Along with the Connexion GXL Liner, the recall also included:

  • 60,926 Exactech Optetrak knee implants
  • 60,518 Exactech Optetrak Logic knee implants
  • 24,727 Exactech Truliant knee implants
  • impacting nearly 150,000 patients with these products.

The same defective polyethylene inserts were also used in 1,561 Exactech Vantage ankle replacement systems, which have also been recalled.

The Optetrak, Optetrak Logic, and Truliant Knee replacement systems are considered metal-on-plastic devices.

Polyethylene cushions the joints between the metal components. When the polyethylene oxidizes, the device breaks down, debris breaks off into the body, bone loss occurs, and more.

Symptoms of a failing knee or ankle system present complications, including:

  • Pain
  • Swelling around the joint
  • Accelerated wear
  • Component fatigue
  • Component fracturing
  • Debris production
  • Osteolysis (bone loss)
  • Bone Fractures
  • Instability in the knee or ankle
  • Inability to bear weight

If you have an Exactech knee or ankle implant and are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Exactech Attempts to Limit Rights of Patients

After the recall, Exactech hired a company, Broadspire, to contact individuals who had received the recalled products. They wanted to see if these individuals were experiencing any problems and if they might require additional surgery.

Broadspire offered minimal compensation for those suffering from complications, only to cover the cost of the revision surgery.

In return for a small payment, people had to give up their right to sue Exactech in the future. This meant they couldn’t get money for the pain they went through.

Exactech hired Broadspire to save the company money. They are looking out for Exactech, not the people harmed by their defective devices.

If you have any of the recalled Exactech products and are suffering from complications, DO NOT sign an agreement with Broadspire. Doing so will waive your right to claim full compensation for the pain and suffering caused by this Exactech defective product.

You May Have a Claim for Compensation

If you or a loved one have a total knee replacement that has failed, you may qualify to file a lawsuit for financial compensation.

If you have one of the hip replacement recall devices, you may qualify to file a lawsuit.

If you had any joint replacement surgery that required being removed and replaced, call The Yost Legal Group to learn about your rights.

Do not sign anything from Exactech or Broadspire without speaking with an Exactech lawyer first. Doing so could limit your right to sue for full and fair compensation.

Charles H. Hickey School Juvenile Detention Sexual Abuse Lawsuit

Formerly Known as the Maryland Training School for Boys, This Juvenile Detention Center Has a History of Rape and Sexual Abuse of Minors

Maryland Juvenile detention centers have been irresponsible in their duties to protect the vulnerable minors in their care. Youth detention centers, like the Charles H. Hickey, Jr. School, ignored reports of rapes and sexual assaults for many years. These reports were not taken seriously by the centers.

Many juvenile prisoners experience incarceration due to traumatic experiences, poor family relationships, and untreated mental health issues. These can lead to poor decision-making and a move toward acts of crime. We are talking about minors, people who have very little control over where, how, and with whom they grow up.

Serving time in a juvenile detention center is supposed to be a minor’s “payment of debt to society.” The incarceration is the punishment. Minors should not experience cruel and unusual punishment beyond that.

Children in juvenile detention centers should never experience rape, sexual abuse, or assault by the adults in charge.

If you or a loved one is a survivor of childhood rape or sexual abuse while incarcerated in a Maryland juvenile detention center, you are not at fault, and you are not alone. The experienced attorneys at The Yost Legal Group are representing survivors of childhood sexual abuse that happened in Maryland’s youth detention centers.

If you are ready to talk, we are here to listen. Call or text today at 410-659-6800.

Uncovering the Horrors Inside Maryland’s Youth Detention Centers

These young people were raped and assaulted in juvenile detention. They did not deserve to be mistreated, no matter the reason they were locked up. They should not have been ignored or made fun of. They were talking about the bad things that happened to them in Maryland’s youth detention centers.

These facilities and the state of Maryland that oversees them have a responsibility to ensure the safety of the minors in their care. All parties involved with the management of these juvenile detention centers failed in their duties to protect vulnerable minors.

Now, thanks to Maryland’s Child Victims Act, survivors have a chance to advocate for themselves, to come forward, to pursue legal action against the facility where they were harmed.

Survivors Find Their Voice Thanks to Maryland’s Child Victims Act

The Child Victims Act has invigorated thousands of survivors to come forward, speak their truths, and seek justice. The Archdiocese of Baltimore alone is facing over 700 lawsuits from survivors who reported their childhood sexual abuses.

These brave and resilient survivors are going to help make sure these abusive institutions are held accountable for their complacency in the malice treatment of minors.

We here at The Yost Legal Group believe the next step is taking on Maryland’s juvenile and youth detention centers where rape and sexual abuses went unchecked for decades.

By February of 2024, there were already over 200 survivors who were suing Maryland’s juvenile justice agency. The lawsuits alleged abuse at 15 juvenile detention facilities. But it is believed there are far more cases than those.

Sexual abuse in juvenile detention centers turns into so many young victims of sexual abuse. One of our child sexual abuse lawyers can help you seek justice. Rape in juvenile jails has a going on for years and we are working to hold the department of juvenile services accountable.

There is an extensive list of Maryland’s juvenile detention centers you can find at this link. Some of the facilities are defunct, others are still active. No matter the operational status, if you or a loved one was raped or sexually abused as a minor in one of Maryland’s juvenile detention centers by an employee or contractor, you may have a case.

If you or a loved one was raped or sexually abused as a minor in a Maryland juvenile detention center and you are ready to tell your truth, contact The Yost Legal Group today.

Charles H. Hickey, Jr. School Sexual Abuse Claims

The Charles H. Hickey, Jr. School is one juvenile detention facility of note. Not only did the Hickey School come up in the earliest lawsuits against Maryland’s youth centers, we here at The Yost Legal Group are representing several “John Doe’s who are suing the school.

Formerly known as the Maryland Training School for Boys, the Charles H. Hickey, Jr. School has technically been in operation since 1850 when it was first called the House of Refuge.

The original building stood on Frederick Avenue in Baltimore City. The House of Refuge was the very first facility in the state of Maryland to function with the sole purpose of housing minor offenders to keep them away from adults.

Logically and on paper, it is a good idea to keep minors away from adult prisoners.

Unfortunately, the so-called adults in charge were not particularly “innocent” themselves.

Maryland School for Boys Sexual Abuse Claims

After changing its name to the Maryland School for Boys, the juvenile detention center moved in 1910 to its current location near Loch Raven. Then, in 1918, the facility changed its name again, this time to the Maryland Training School for Boys.

The juvenile detention center would operate under that name for decades until adopting its current name of Charles H. Hickey, Jr. School in 1985, in honor of a Baltimore County sheriff who passed away the year prior.

However, several name changes and relocation cannot hide or erase decades of reported sexual abuse. To be exact, the very first reports of maltreatment date back over 160 years to when the facility still had its very first name, the House of Refuge.

Maryland Survivor Breaks Silence on Juvenile Detention Abuse

As mentioned, we are representing several “John Doe”s who were held at the Charles H. Hickey, Jr. School. One such client was there in the 1980s and shared accounts of being groomed and sexually abused by two different guards.

Our client was a teenaged minor. He was incarcerated. There is no such thing as “consent” in either situation. The adult guards, one man, one woman, used their position of influence and power within the facility to rape and sexually abuse our client during his incarceration.

Beyond the personal failings of the guards, there are also clear logistical and systemic failures on the part of Charles H. Hickey, Jr. School’s administration that made it possible for guards to discretely sexually abuse the minors in their care.

Now, our client must deal with the aftermath of horrific psychological trauma. He suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and behavioral issues on top of the traumas that led to his being incarcerated in the first place.

We must hold these abusive individuals, the institutions that harbored them, and the state of Maryland accountable. The Maryland Department of Justice should not allow rape in juvenile detention centers.

Maryland’s Youth Detention Crisis: Survivors Seek Justice

Unfortunately, a lawsuit will not get anyone their time back. It will not undo the damage that has been done. It will not make the memories go away. If you are a survivor of sexual abuse in a juvenile jail by a guard or staff member call us to talk.

However, pursuing legal action against these institutions can help secure a monetary win that can be used to pay for therapy and medical bills, help your family, etc. Also, holding these abusive institutions accountable can help ensure these atrocities do not happen to the next person.

If you were in a Baltimore juvenile detention center and were sexually abused as a minor while at the Charles H. Hickey, Jr. School or any other Maryland juvenile detention center, we are here to listen. We are here to help. Contact the compassionate sexual abuse survivor attorneys at The Yost Legal Group today. Call or text us at 410-659-6800.

The Link Between Hair Relaxers and Uterine Cancer

Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with uterine cancer, endometrial cancer, or non-serious ovarian cancer? It may be related to the over-the-counter use of chemical hair relaxers.

The long-term use of these products is linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancers in women. At The Yost Legal Group, we are here to help you navigate this difficult situation and explore your legal options.

Read on to learn more about how hair relaxers could impact your health and what steps you can take.

We will help determine if your use of hair straighteners caused your cancer.

The Disturbing Truth About Hair Relaxers and Cancer Risk: What Women Should Know

Chemical hair relaxers have been popular for women looking to straighten their hair for many years. However, recent studies have shown a concerning link between the use of these products and an increased risk of:

– uterine cancer

– endometrial cancer

– non-serous ovarian cancer.

The chemicals in many hair relaxers have been found to disrupt hormone levels in the body, potentially leading to these types of cancers over time.

Have you been using chemical hair relaxers for an extended period and received a cancer diagnosis? Speaking with a Hair Relaxer Attorney at The Yost Legal Group is essential.

Some of these products contain chemicals like:

  • parabens
  • nitrosamines
  • bisphenol A (BPA)
  • metals
  • formaldehyde

These harmful chemicals can cause serious health problems, like certain types of cancer, such as uterine and ovarian cancer.

When you straighten your hair, your scalp absorbs these chemicals instead of them just sitting on your hair. These treatments can be harsh and may cause burns or lesions on your scalp. This can make it easier for harmful substances to enter your body and bloodstream.

One chemical to be particularly mindful of is formaldehyde, a substance notorious for its toxicity and cancer-causing potential. Next time you consider getting your hair straightened, remember that the risks might extend beyond just a bad hair day.

Hair straightener cancer includes uterine cancer, endometrial cancer, or non-serious ovarian cancer.

Stay informed and take care when choosing hair treatments. Your health is worth more than straight hair!

Understanding Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)

Each year, 30,000 newborn babies face health complications during the birthing process. One of the most severe conditions that can occur during childbirth is Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE). This is a condition that affects a baby’s brain due to lack of oxygen.

This condition requires immediate medical attention and treatment in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). A traumatic birth experience can cause an HIE medical diagnosis as well as a cerebral palsy diagnosis.

A medical mistake can sometimes cause a traumatic labor and delivery. If your child has an HIE diagnosis, it is important to contact an HIE attorney. The Yost Legal Group helps families affected by a hypoxic birth injury and other types of childbirth trauma.

What is HIE?

Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) refers to brain damage or injury caused by oxygen deprivation during birth. An HIE brain injury occurs when the baby does not get enough oxygen to the brain or blood flow before, during, or after delivery.

If left untreated or not diagnosed promptly, HIE can lead to long-term disabilities such as:

– cerebral palsy

– developmental delays

– seizures

– and death

traumatic birth medical malpractice

What are the signs and symptoms of Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)?

The symptoms of HIE vary depending on the severity of the injury.

Some common signs include:

– difficulty breathing or abnormal breathing patterns

– low muscle tone or limpness

– seizures or convulsions

– poor reflexes or response to stimuli

– an abnormal level of consciousness.

The causes of HIE can be due to various factors, such as:

– umbilical cord problems like prolapse or compression

– maternal infections

– placental abruption

– prolonged labor

– premature rupture of membranes

– medical negligence

Neonatal cooling is a treatment for babies with HIE

What are treatment options for HIE?

Hypothermia therapy is the only way to treat HIE. It lowers body temperature to prevent more harm to brain cells.

Cooling techniques can include a cooling blanket for whole-body cooling or a selective head cooling process. Hypothermia therapy should be initiated as soon as possible, preferably within six hours of birth.

In addition to hypothermia therapy, other supportive treatments such as oxygen therapy, seizure management, and monitoring vital signs are also necessary. A baby with HIE will require a nursing care plan, including working with a medical team providing significant medical care.

What is a usual nursing home plan for Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)?

If you are a parent of a baby with cerebral palsy (CP) or Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE), it is essential to understand the nursing home plan for your child’s condition. HIE can result in long-term neurological damage.

A nursing home plan consists of various therapies and interventions that aim to improve the quality of life of children with HIE.

  1. Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is an integral part of the nursing home plan for children with HIE. The goal of physical therapy is to help children gain strength, improve mobility, and enhance gross motor skills. Physical therapists work on improving balance, coordination, and muscle tone through exercises such as stretching, crawling, standing, and walking.

  1. Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy focuses on improving fine motor skills, such as grasping objects and hand-eye coordination. Children with HIE often struggle with basic activities such as holding utensils or coloring because of their limited dexterity.

Occupational therapists help improve skills by doing activities like playing with blocks or drawing.

  1. Speech Therapy

Speech therapy assists children with HIE in enhancing their communication skills. This therapy is beneficial for children who have difficulty speaking or rely on non-verbal methods due to their condition.

Speech therapists work on establishing communication through various techniques, such as sign language or picture exchange communication systems (PECS). They also focus on strengthening mouth muscles used in speaking and swallowing.

  1. Feeding Therapy

Feeding difficulties are common in children with HIE due to poor muscle control around the mouth or throat region. Feeding therapy aims at addressing these issues by teaching proper feeding techniques, such as chewing and swallowing, and addressing any difficulty in reflux or other digestive issues.

  1. Behavioral Therapy

Behavioral therapy is an essential part of the nursing home plan for children with HIE who may have developmental or behavioral issues due to their condition. Behavioral therapists work on the following:

  • improving social skills
  • managing behavior
  • addressing any emotional or mental health concerns that may arise

The Voice of a Survivor of Church Sexual Abuse in Baltimore

Rebecca was a sweet 14-year-old little girl in the 8th grade when she was violently raped and sexually assaulted. The sexual abuse and rape happened while she was in school at St Peter Clavers Catholic School in Baltimore. They told her that the church sexual abuse was her fault.

Life has been very challenging for our client. She had to fight internal demons her entire life just to get from one day to the next. She didn’t realize until recently that the abuse she sustained as a young girl was not her fault.

Sadly, Rebecca carried the trauma of her childhood sexual abuse throughout her life, like many other survivors. Now, 50 years later, she has hired The Yost Legal Group to file a claim on her behalf against the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

Rebecca is standing up and speaking out by writing poems about the abuse. She is extremely shy but has found her voice through her writings. Here is a poem Rebecca wanted to share.

The Catholic Church allowed the sexual abuse of thousands of children.

You said we should be honored to be selected. The priest was a pedophile. Archdiocese of Baltimore

Rebecca’s Poem, A Survivor’s POINT OF VIEW

It was such an honor serving next to God’s right-hand man.

They taught us all we know about being a devoted Catholic.

We served as altar boys. We did folk masses and then the long-awaited confirmation.

But through it all, you taught us something else.

You said we should be honored to be selected.

At first, you touched us. You knew what to do and where to touch.

You said we know you were doing the right thing because it feels good.

We were confused. What is this you are doing? How could this be right?

But you kept coming. You kept touching and exploring.

We complained. We don’t want to do this. But you insisted that we should be honored.

God chose us. We are special. But you can’t tell anyone.

Then you wanted us to touch you. This can’t be right.

But you know best. You’re an adult. You are next to God.

What do we know? We are just kids. You are here to take care of us, right?

Then it happens. We are violated in the ultimate way.

It hurts so bad. We beg you to stop. We cry to no avail.

Then it’s over. You tell us this is our little secret.

Little do we know you’ll be back for more and more.

Why do we feel so dirty and bad? We can’t stand to look at ourselves.

We can’t concentrate. How can we face our parents? If they knew, they would disown us.

This secret is killing us, but we can’t tell. We are wrong. We are bad.

We wish we could just disappear. We’re not fit to be in this world.

Life sucks.

Now we are older. The abuse has stopped, but the pain lingers on.

We haven’t told anyone. He got away with it.

He ruined our lives. We suffered unnecessarily, and for what, your pleasure?

We trusted you. We put our lives in your hands.

You hurt us in more ways than one, and you’re not even sorry.

You teach us to atone for our sins, to confess to God.

When will you? What penance will you do for your sins? 10 Hail Mary’s?

You were wrong. You owe us compensation and restitution for our pain and suffering.

You also owe us your solemn oath that this will not happen again.

All of you let this happen, but no more.

If the Catholic Church is for real, then they will take steps to ensure our safety and not cover up wrongdoing.

As for us, pray for us that we will heal. In fact, now that the secret is out, that is the beginning of healing.

We know now. We are not dirty. We are not bad.

We were victims but are now survivors and productive members of society.

We are united. You can no longer hurt us, and we are determined that you will not hurt anyone else.

We are strong, and we are one.

—- By Rebecca W.

Exactech Hip Replacement Lawsuit Timeline

May 2023

Judge Donna Keim of Gainesville, FL, organized a special “science day” focused on Exactech implants. Two esteemed judges, Judge Nicholas Garaufis and Judge Marcia M. Henry from the Eastern District of New York, were invited to participate.

During this unique gathering, experts representing the plaintiff and defense sides of the Exactech lawsuit shared valuable insights on various aspects of the case.

Topics included the science behind hip and knee replacements, revisions, the materials used in the recalled Exactech implants, and the packaging materials. Additionally, other issues related to the recalled devices were also addressed.

Science Day was a significant opportunity for the judge to deepen her understanding of the recalled devices and raise pertinent questions. Moving forward, regular case management conferences will be held by the judges as the discovery phase progresses in the Exactech lawsuits. This ensures a thorough and practical examination of the matter at hand.

March 2023

The FDA warns patients and healthcare providers who have used Exactech joint replacement devices between 2004 and August 2021. They communicated about the recall of specific devices manufactured during this period.

The recalled Exactech joint replacement devices, including knees, ankles, and hips, were found to have been packaged in defective packaging bags. These bags lacked an essential oxygen barrier layer, which serves to protect the devices from oxidation – a chemical reaction that can deteriorate plastics over time.

The consequences of oxidation can be severe, resulting in accelerated device wear/failure, as well as component cracking or fracture. These issues may ultimately necessitate corrective revision surgery. It is important to note that some of the recalled devices are also associated with an increased risk of revision surgeries and bone loss due to excessive device wear/failure.

The FDA urged patients and healthcare providers to be aware of this recall and take the necessary steps to address potential risks or concerns. It was advised to contact the appropriate healthcare professionals to discuss further actions, such as device replacement or additional monitoring.

January 2023

Exactech pushes for official coordination and consolidation of federal and state court litigations related to the Exactech implant recalls.

December 2022

A rapid increase in lawsuits related to the Exactech recall has been filed into the Exactech MDL 3044.

October 2022

Due to the volume of cases filed, lawsuits involving the recalled knee and ankle products were consolidated into a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) in the Eastern District of New York. Similarly, many recalled hip and ankle products filed in Florida remain consolidated in the Florida state courts. Over a year later, over 850 lawsuits are pending in the MDL, and over 200 are pending in the Florida courts.

February 2022

To avoid paying patients what they truly deserve, Exactech chose early on to provide a settlement option upfront for its victims. Exactech retained the services of Broadspire, a third-party settlement administrator and risk management firm, to handle the claims reimbursement process.

Patients were encouraged to file a claim with Broadspire and obtain reimbursement for their out-of-pocket medical expenses only.

Essentially, Broadspire was hired by Exactech to lure victims in by appealing to people’s desire for quick money without the need for a lawyer. However, it is essential to remember that Broadspire is a risk management company whose sole purpose was to minimize the financial damage to Exactech.

The Broadspire settlement option only reimburses patients for medical expenses paid that insurance did not cover. This significantly reduces the amount of financial compensation Exactech will have to pay out.

Lost wages, related medical bills, and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, are not part of the calculus. A settlement through Broadspire will NOT compensate you for all of your damages.

Submitting a claim through Broadspire will impact your legal options against Exactech.

June 2021

Exactech issued recalls of its knee, hip, and ankle implant systems. They said defective packaging caused the polyethylene inserts to oxidize and deteriorate rapidly. This ultimately led to a premature failure of the devices.

At The Yost Legal Group, patients’ well-being is our top priority. We are here to provide support and guidance throughout this process. Please stay informed and take the necessary precautions to ensure your safety.

Traumatic brain injury from accident with a Tractor Trailer

Understanding the devastating impact of traumatic brain injury (TBI)

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a severe injury that affects millions of people every year, leaving a devastating impact on the individual and their families.

This type of injury occurs when sudden and violent trauma happens to the head that results in a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities.

When a TBI is caused by someone else’s negligence, you need the representation of an experienced brain injury lawyer.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), TBI causes over 50,000 deaths in the United States each year. Trauma to the head can result from various events, such as vehicular accidents, falls, sports injuries, and physical assaults.

The impact on a person’s physical, cognitive, and emotional health can be profound. A traumatic brain injury attorney at The Yost Legal Group understands these types of cases. A serious car crash can cause a significant head injury.

TBI symptoms can range from mild to severe, and they may not appear until weeks or even months after the initial injury. Some common symptoms may include:

–      headaches

–      dizziness

–      confusion

–      difficulty concentrating

–      memory issues

–      changes in mood or behavior

–      seizures

If you or someone you love has suffered a TBI in an accident caused by negligence, call us for help.

Wrongful death refers to a death that is caused by someone else’s wrongful act, neglect or default. It includes any type of fatal accident, from car accidents and medical malpractice to defective products and workplace accidents.

This could include medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of income, and emotional pain and suffering. At The Yost Legal Group, we understand that no amount of compensation or legal action can bring your loved one back.

Clergy Sexual Abuse Lawyers Helping Survivors Seek Justice

The topic of child sexual abuse can be difficult to talk about. It is important to do so to bring justice and healing to survivors.

Recently, news broke that the Archdiocese of Baltimore has filed for bankruptcy. This was due to lawsuits filed on behalf of hundreds of children whom members of the Maryland Catholic Church sexually abused.

The Church is trying to deter claimants from coming forward and seeking justice and restitution.

Please do not let this bankruptcy filing stop you from seeking justice from your abuser. There is still time for you to come forward and make your claim.

No matter how long ago the sexual assault happened by any member of the Catholic Church or anyone who worked for the Catholic Church, seek our legal counsel. Call The Yost Legal Group at 800-967-8529 for a free, confidential consultation.

The Archdiocese of Baltimore has filed for bankruptcy.

 

Why is it important to come forward now?

Religious leaders hold a sacred responsibility to guide and support their followers. It is truly disheartening when individuals in these positions of authority use their faith to commit acts of sexual abuse and conceal their actions. This is a profound betrayal that cannot be overlooked.

Numerous churches and religious institutions have faced immense scrutiny due to the prevalence of sexual abuse within their ranks.

These institutions have faced criticism for failing to properly address and investigate allegations. The Catholic church is known for not reporting abuse and ensuring the safety of vulnerable individuals, particularly children.

Tragically, we have seen cases of child sexual abuse scandals involving clergy from various religious institutions, including:

  • the Catholic Church
  • Evangelical Christians
  • Jehovah’s Witnesses
  • Orthodox Judaism/Yeshivas
  • the Church of Latter-Day Saints/Mormons
  • the Church of Scientology

It is crucial that we acknowledge the extent of this issue and work together to protect those who have been harmed.

The bankruptcy filing will limit the time you have to file a claim. But it does not limit the time of how long ago the abuse happened. Even if you were sexually assaulted over 50 years ago, we can file a claim on your behalf. It’s just the claim must be filed now to protect your rights.

It is painful for survivors of child sexual abuse to come forward. We understand you need support and protection.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of child sexual abuse by the Maryland Catholic Church, it’s time to come forward to make a claim.  Our clergy sexual abuse attorneys are here to help. Don’t let the Archdiocese of Baltimore bankruptcy scare you away.

The Yost Legal Group fights for clergy abuse survivors rights.

 

Seeking Legal Representation for a Clergy Sexual Abuse Claim

The first step in making a claim is to seek legal representation. The lawyers at The Yost Legal Group have years of experience representing survivors of child sexual abuse. We are ready to fight for your rights.

Clergy sexual abuse is a traumatizing experience that can have long-lasting effects on survivors. If you’re one of them, you may be facing a difficult choice: should you come forward and hold accountable the Catholic Church for what it has done to you?

The decision alone can be overwhelming, let alone having to relive the traumatic experience. We understand that this is a painful process, but it’s also important to remember that you’re not alone.

Our personal injury law attorneys are here to help you seek justice and compensation for your damages. We are string lawyers for victims, especially child victims.

If you are a survivor of sexual abuse by a Catholic priest or other religious organization, let us file a lawsuit on your behalf.

When you call 1-800-967-8529, you will speak to a compassionate clergy abuse lawyer who will provide you with the support and guidance you need.

We will explain the legal process to you in easy terms. Knowing that you don’t have to face this alone is essential.

Why making a church sexual abuse claim is so important?

To make a claim, you’ll need to provide information about the abuse you suffered. We will listen to your story with care and compassion. We will need to know when and where the abuse occurred, who was involved, and how it has affected you and your life.

One of the reasons why clergy sexual abuse is so under-reported is because survivors don’t know who to trust and who to turn to. The Catholic Church has resources that they use to intimidate victims from speaking out.

This has made survivors feel helpless and vulnerable. At The Yost Legal Group, we are entirely dedicated to serving the best interests of survivors and protecting their right to compensation.

Your safety and comfort are our top priorities. We’ll work tirelessly to ensure you are treated with the respect and dignity you deserve.

You can file a claim without using your name publicly, which can provide a level of privacy and protection. Your child sexual abuse lawyer will walk you through the process and ensure that your rights are protected throughout.

Baltimore church sexual abuse claims lawyer.

 

What to expect when filing a claim against the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

It’s natural to have questions about what to expect when making a claim. The bankruptcy court will create a fund to compensate survivors. It is important to know that settlements can take some time.

Your lawyer will update you on your case and answer any questions you have along the way.

It’s essential to prioritize your own well-being throughout this process. Seeking support from trusted friends and family can be helpful.

Why is it essential to come forward?

While deciding to come forward can be difficult, it’s a crucial step towards seeking justice and healing.

By coming forward, you are also helping to protect others from experiencing the same type of abuse. It’s important to remember that you have the right to speak your truth and seek compensation for the harm that was done to you.

You deserve support and care throughout this process, and legal representation can provide that.

The Yost Legal Group is fighting for the rights of clergy sexual abuse survivors every day.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual abuse by the Maryland Catholic Church, it’s important to come forward now to protect your rights to compensation.

Our church sexual abuse lawyers are dedicated to clergy abuse survivors’ rights. If you want to file a lawsuit against the catholic church, our victims’ rights attorneys will demand justice for you.

How we charge for our services.

We do not charge any legal fees upfront. In fact, you do not owe us anything until after we settle your child sexual abuse case. If we recover financial compensation for you, our law firm will take a percentage of the fee. If there is no settlement, there are no legal fees or expenses due.

Please feel free to call us with any questions. We genuinely care and are here for you.

 

Get Help from Allergan Textured Breast Implant Lawyers

The Yost Legal Group is filing lawsuits on behalf of women harmed by Allergan Biocell® textured breast implants. Due to a dangerous defect, the manufacturers have recalled these saline-filled and silicone-filled implants.

These implants are connected to a rare cancer called implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). Breast implant-associated ALCL is the reason for the Allergan breast implant recall.

Your health and well-being are our top priority. We are dedicated to seeking justice for those affected by these harmful implants. Women have a much higher risk of developing BIA-ALCL.

Breast implant removal consultation

Have you been diagnosed with implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)? 

We’re seeking justice for women nationwide. The Yost Legal Group is actively pursuing compensation for those harmed by Allergan Biocell® textured breast implants.

If you or a loved one were diagnosed with BIA-ALCL call us for legal guidance. We will file an Allergan textured breast implant lawsuit on your behalf. It will not cost you anything for us to file your claim. You pay us nothing while we are working on your case.

The Allergan implant recall will compensate women diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma from breast implants. The breast implant litigation is a way to seek Allergan implant compensation.

We only get paid after we successfully settle your claim. If there is no settlement, no legal fees or expenses are due.

It is important that you understand how your claim will be handled. The Yost Legal Group provides comprehensive legal services to women nationwide and will help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Breast Pain from Allergan implants

What are the symptoms of the recalled Allergan Textured Breast Implants?

Allergan Biocell® textured breast implants are saline-filled and silicone-filled textured breast implants that have been recalled.

These implants have been linked to implant-associated bia anaplastic large cell lymphoma, which is a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (cancer of the immune system).

In most cases, BIA-ALCL lymphoma is found in the scar tissue and fluid around the implant, but in some cases, it can spread throughout the body. As alarming as this may sound, there are warning signs that can help you self-monitor for ALCL cancer symptoms.

These symptoms include:

– persistent swelling near the breast implant

– pain near the breast implant

– development of seromas around the implant

– fluid build-up around the implant

If you have undergone breast augmentation surgery using Allergan Biocell® textured breast implants, contact your doctor. These implants have been recalled, so you have several corrective options.

Some surgeons advise taking out Allergan Biocell® textured breast implants to reduce cancer risk.

Consult your doctor about the best course of action for you. If you have already had the textured breast implants removed, are considering removal, or need more information, reach out to us for a free consultation at 800-967-8529. Your peace of mind is very important to us.

Allergan will remove faulty implants for women, but they won’t cover the cost of getting new, safer ones. And they are not offering financial compensation to cover your pain and suffering and other associated costs.

This is why it’s important to contact us so our experienced legal team can fight to protect your right to full and fair compensation.

Higher Cancer Risk Linked to Allergan Biocell® Textured Breast Implants

Even though the urgent recall was issued by Allergan and the FDA over four years ago, many women still do not know about the recall.

Allergan Biocell® textured breast implants pose a higher risk of cancer compared to other types of breast implants.

According to the FDA, the following products are part of the recall:

  • Natrelle Saline-Filled breast implants (Styles 168, 163, 363 & 468)
  • Natrelle Silicone-Filled breast implants (Styles 110, 115 & 120)
  • Natrelle Inspira Silicone-Filled breast implants (multiple “T” Styles)
  • Natrelle 410 Highly Cohesive Anatomically Shaped Silicone-Filled breast implants
  • McGhan BioDIMENSIONAL Silicone-Filled breast implants (Style 153)
  • McGhan Croissant Shaped Tissue Expander (Style 134)
  • Natrelle 133 Plus Tissue Expander
  • Natrelle 133 Tissue Expander with Suture Tabs

Breat implant removal allergan recall

Why are Allergan’s Biocell® textured breast implants dangerous?

One of the common causes of BIA-ALCL is the surface texture of the implant. When Allergen designed these implants, they introduced a texturized surface to help prevent slipping.

Unfortunately, this texturized surface has been known to cause damage to the surrounding tissue and can even lead to cancer over time. This is why The Yost Legal Group is taking legal action on behalf of women nationwide.

We want to hold Allergen accountable for the harm that their products have caused.

If you’re considering legal action against Allergan, finding knowledgeable and experienced representation is essential.

The Yost Legal Group will fight to help secure the compensation you deserve. Upon evaluation, our team will determine the best course of action based on the unique circumstances of your case.
