More Fentynal Pain Patch Lawsuits

Law firms are filing more fentanyl pain patch lawsuits—more and more of them are against Mylan Inc. and its subsidiary, Mylan Technologies Inc. Mylan patches differ from the usual pain patches because they are not reservoir based, but instead use a mesh matrix. Experts agree that the mesh matrix is much safer than the reservoirs, which are prone to leaking toxic amounts of the opiate drug. Right now, there have been reports of about 28 deaths possibly related to the Mylan matrix patches. Further investigation will reveal whether the products were defective.
