In the summer of 2008, a study was published in the journal Neurology indicating a link between the use of several common denture creams and the risk of serious side effects caused by denture cream zinc poisoning. Jacoby & Meyers' defective products lawyers are accepting cases of clients who have suffered serious injuries from denture cream zinc poisoning.
More than 35 million Americans wear dentures, and until recently, the risk of denture cream zinc poisoning was not made public to these consumers. If you have suffered a serious injury from the use of denture cream, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your damages.
Several defective product lawsuits have already been filed against Procter & Gamble and GlaxoSmithKline, the manufacturers of denture creams such as:
These denture creams contain the mineral zinc. In small quantities, zinc will not be harmful to your body. However, the use of these denture creams may result in unsafe levels of zinc in your body, causing copper depletion and zinc poisoning.
The denture cream manufacturers have been accused of not disclosing the risks of denture cream use to consumers. In fact, these companies do not even list zinc as an ingredient on the packaging of their denture creams. Consequently, millions of denture cream users were unaware that they were endangering their health by using these products.
Excessive zinc exposure can result in weakness, numbness, and loss of sensation. In severe cases, you may develop neuropathy, a serious condition affecting your nerves. Symptoms of neuropathy include:
If not treated promptly, neuropathy can result in permanent nerve damage.
The experienced attorneys at Jacoby & Meyers can help you receive fair compensation for your injuries if you have developed neuropathy from denture cream zinc poisoning. It is important to have your zinc levels tested to determine if your denture cream use has caused your neuropathy.
Jacoby & Meyers is a large national law firm with the resources to battle big corporations and their legal teams. These companies will try their hardest to limit the amount they have to pay you in compensation for your injuries. It is important that you have someone on your side to ensure that your rights are protected.
