COVID-19 is changing the reality for individuals all across the world. There are over 2 million cases globally, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), and that number alone still may be underestimating just how many people are actually carrying the illness.
Tragically, the virus greatly affects those who we fight for, and it can also greatly affect the timeline of their case. Even in the face of uncertainty, rest assured that the national Taxotere lawsuit lawyers at Hotze Runkle PLLC can still help you find the timely resolution you need to overcome an already challenging time, made even more difficult because of the coronavirus.
Those with Pre-Existing Health Conditions May be More Susceptible
As many may be asymptomatic, coupled with a shortage of available test kits, testing for the virus is very limited at this time. A recent article from The New York Times explains that the issue isn’t so much getting tests for patients, but having a lack of supplies to process and deliver the results to the people.
In truth, COVID-19 is attacking people from all different demographics, but those who are especially vulnerable are individuals that are over the age of 65 and/or people with pre-existing health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, and obesity. By the same token, immunocompromised people are also a group of people that fall within this demographic.
This hits close to home for us at Hotze Runkle PLLC, as our legal team has defended breast cancer patients who were prescribed Taxotere as a chemotherapy drug and are now dealing with its life-long side effects. Not only do these immunocompromised people have to deal with chemotherapy tearing from the eyes as a result of Sanofi-Aventis’ negligence, they now live in a world that constantly puts them at serious risk of contracting an illness that could be fatal to them.
