As the illness and death toll rises from NECC’s contaminated epidural steroid injection, we’re learning more about the Framingham, Massachusetts, compounding pharmacy. For instance, today, news sources are reporting a confidential settlement between NECC and a widow whose husband died in 2004 from a contaminated shot.
William Koch died from bacterial meningitis in February 2004 at the age of 83, according to CBS News. He died about a year and a half after being injected.
The widow’s lawyer told the media that the case was settled before it went to trial. Details are confidential.
On Wednesday, WHIOTV.com reported that the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy suspended NECC’s Ohio Terminal Distributor of Dangerous Drugs license.
“[T]here was clear and convincing evidence that the continuation of New England Compounding Center’s professional practice presented a danger of immediate and serious harm to others,” the board said in a statement.
The Spangenberg law firm is currently investigating personal injury and wrongful death claims on behalf of those who became ill or died due to NECC’s negligence. To speak with an NECC fungal meningitis outbreak attorney, please call 877.696.3303 or 216.696.3232 if you live in the Cleveland area.
