A Uloric lawsuit, also known as Uloric poison suit, is a wrongful death claim against Ulorice Inc., (FebUXostat), for exposures to chemical compounds used in Uloric cleaning. These chemicals are called volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), including acetaldehyde, benzene, carbon dioxide, ethylene glycol, hydroquinone, lindane, methylene chloride, dyclonine, phenol, peroxynitrite, sodium hydroxide, and trichloroacetic acid. Uloric cleaners are believed to increase toxicity of the body because the compounds attack the immune system. This leads to organ toxicity. It was not known how long exposure to these chemicals might accumulate in the body, but studies have shown that workers in Uloric cleaning are more likely to be exposed to them.
A Uloric lawsuit occurs in two ways. First, a defendant can file a wrongful death or mass tort claim in the U.S. Second, a plaintiff may file a civil action in a U.S. court against the manufacturer of Uloric products, on behalf of those who have died or are suffering from long-term disabilities due to exposure to the chemicals. When a Uloric lawsuit has been filed in a U.S. court, it usually names as defendants the company that is responsible for the injuries, either through direct manufacturing or through indirect manufacturing.
The Uloric lawsuit claims against Ulorice Inc. involved exposures to two hazardous ingredients found in a variety of personal care products. The ingredients included was Felden salts and Benzalkonium chloride. Both were included in at least one of the personal care products sold by Uloric. At the time of filing the lawsuit, none of the individuals who died or who became ill had serious side effects from the exposure to these chemicals. However, some of them developed serious respiratory illnesses, including asthma, emphysema, and various types of cancer. As a result of their illness, they received compensation from the manufacturer of the products that they suffered from.
There was one side effect associated with the use of Felden salts and Benzalkonium chloride in personal care products that ultimately led to a second outbreak of illnesses. A large number of Felden salts that contain a particular antimicrobial agent called allopurinol were distributed to patients with diabetes. Allopurinol causes hyperglycemia in patients taking it for extended periods. Because there was a correlation between the long-term use of these medications and the formation of conditions such as diabetes, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit found that the manufacturers of logic lawsuit lubricants knew that the medication could cause such side effects and that they did nothing to warn patients. A final case in the same court found that one of the manufacturers’ main ingredients used to formulate the medications for osteoarthritis resulted in severe birth defects in one of the patients taking the medication.
There are three main factors to consider when filing a Uloric lawsuit. The first is whether the manufacturer intentionally deceived patients in providing their medications with ingredients that caused serious side effects. If this was done deliberately, then a lawsuit can be filed. If there was negligence in the manufacturing of the drug, then the patient may be able to file a wrongful death suit against the drug manufacturer.
The other two cases that I looked at involved heart patients who were taking uric acid to reduce acidosis in their blood, and patients with diabetes that developed renal disease due to their use of Felden salts. Both of these groups of patients were eventually diagnosed with cardiovascular problems. Each of the patients had to contend with long term damage to their hearts, as well as organ transplant complications. The bottom line is that when manufacturers are purposely misleading patients, or if they are negligent enough to cause severe health issues, they should pay for their mistakes with a lawsuit.
