Grant & Eisenhofer Lead Counsel in Petition on HIV Medication Lawsuit; Cases to be Centralized

Personal injury lawsuits, filed on behalf of hundreds of patients injured by Gilead’s HIV medications containing tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) antiviral medications, are slated to be coordinated in a single California state court action. The Foster City, Calif.-based pharma’s petition for dismissal was denied by the court, and now, the cases are headed towards coordination and trials.

Plaintiffs allege that, for more than a decade, Gilead withheld from sale a medication for HIV treatment that was safer and more effective than the drug the company promoted on the market at the time. The drugs, namely Viread, Truvada, Atripla, Complera and Stribild, caused toxicity to kidneys, bones, and teeth, and in some cases caused kidney failure and profound weakening of bones and/or teeth.

Plaintiffs’ firm Grant & Eisenhofer is lead counsel in the petition now pending before the California Judicial Council in San Francisco.

If you or a loved one took Truvada, Viread, Atripla, Complera, or Stribild and suffer from kidney disease, bone density loss or fractures, please contact us by calling (888) 984-7988 for a confidential evaluation of your potential claim.

 

ALERT: Camp Fire Victims Must Claim to Recover Money from PG&E by October 21, 2019

Individuals affected by the 2018 Camp Fire reported to be caused by PG&E must file claims with the bankruptcy court by October 21, 2019 in order to recover money for injuries, evacuations, lost homes and businesses. Those who fail to submit paperwork by the deadline will not be eligible to receive compensation for damages. In May 2019, the California government concluded that PG&E is responsible for the deadly Camp Fire that decimated thousands of homes and businesses, displaced residents and caused unsafe water contamination. In June, PG&E told the court that it wants to pay victims for the tragedy it has caused.

California Wildfires Victims Closer To Receiving Aid

This week, a California court appointed Alternative Dispute Resolution specialist, Cathy Yanni, as administrator of the Wildfire Assistance Program. In this role, Yanni will develop eligibility requirements and application procedures for the distribution of the $105 million Wildfire Assistance Fund. Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), whose faulty equipment was recently reported to have started the deadly Camp Fire, will provide the funds to help the communities and individuals recover from this tragedy. The raging fire decimated thousands of homes and businesses, displacing residents and causing unsafe after-effects such as water contamination.

PG&E Plans to Create $11 Billion Fund to Settle Wildfire Claims

Just weeks after Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) had their $105 million assistance fund approved by the bankruptcy court to assist wildfire victims, the California utility company now plans to pool together $11 billion to settle claims from those affected from the fires. The wildfires that broke out in November 2018 in Paradise, CA and surrounding areas amounted to the deadliest in the state’s history—displacing thousands of families, taking 85 lives, and causing unsafe after-effects such as drinking water contamination. PG&E, the utility giant concluded to be responsible for the blaze according to officials, is planning to set up a financial vehicle that would redirect $400 million a year in earnings to establish a pool of $8 billion to settle 2017 and 2018 wildfire claims, plus an additional $3 billion earmarked for future claims. Importantly, the plan would not rely on assistance from the state, taxpayers, or PG&E customers.

PG&E’s $105 Million Wildfire Assistance Fund Proposal Gets Green Light

PG&E’s proposed $105 million wildfire assistance fund was approved by the bankruptcy court this week. The fund will help the victims of the November 2018 Camp Fire (which was recently reported to have been started by faulty PG&E equipment) that decimated thousands of homes and took 85 lives in the Paradise, CA area. In January 2019, PG&E sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the wake of the fire, as it faces an estimated $30 billion in liabilities. The bankruptcy court judge said he wants to see PG&E’s proposed fund up and running as quickly as possible, and he expects details about eligibility and applications will be made available over the coming weeks.
