Denture Cream Injury Law Firm
Our denture cream injury lawyers are available to review potential cases on behalf of people who have suffered from the serious side effects of denture creams, such as Fixodent® and Poligrip®. We believe that makers of denture creams should be held accountable for the injuries associated with these products, particularly those caused by zinc toxicity.
If you or someone you love has suffered neurological damage or another serious symptom of zinc poisoning and have used a denture cream that contains zinc, you may be entitled to compensation. To schedule a free review of your case, please contact our denture cream injury lawyers today.
Zinc Toxicity from Denture Cream
Zinc toxicity has been reported by people who have used excessive amounts of denture cream for long periods of time. While our bodies do need zinc, excessive amounts can be toxic.
Too much zinc can cause serious health complications such as intestinal distress, vomiting, diarrhea, low blood pressure, weakness, abnormal heart rate and fatigue.
Neurological Damage from Denture Cream
Reports of neurological damage have also been reported by some denture wearers who have been exposed to too much zinc. Symptoms of neurological damage include weakness in the limbs, numbness, shaking, unexplained pain and a metallic taste in the mouth.
Neuropathy is a form of neurological damage that has been linked to zinc poisoning and is characterized by chronic pain caused by damage to the central nervous system.
Contact a Denture Cream Injury Lawyer
If you are suffering from neuropathy or another possible denture cream side effect, you should contact a denture cream injury lawyer as soon as possible.
Even though the makers of denture creams caution patients to only use as directed, our attorneys feel they should have done more to educate patients and health care providers of the risks of zinc poisoning when excessive amounts of the product are used. To learn more, please contact us today.
