Meningitis Outbreak Strikes Minnesota MAPS Patients

On Behalf of | Apr 1, 2013 | Personal Injury |

The attorneys at the Meshbesher Law Firm are investigating potential legal claims on behalf of Minnesota patients of the MAPS pain clinics who contracted meningitis after receiving contaminated steroid injections.

Minnesota Advanced Pain Specialists received a batch of the contaminated medication and the Minnesota Department of Health has confirmed that at least 950 patients were injected with fungal meningitis.

Fungal Meningitis can cause inflamation of the brain and spinal cord, severe headaches, fever, nausea and dizziness. Symptoms can mimic those of a stroke. The Center for Disease Control has confirmed 7 deaths so far related to the contaminated steroid injections.

If you have received a steroid injection recently and are experiencing these symptoms you should immediately call your doctor.
