Horrific New Details Emerge In EzriCare Lawsuit


In a trend that is becoming all too common in the United States, innocent people are discovering just how dangerous certain pharmaceutical products really are. One of the most high-profile lawsuits in recent months involves EzriCare, a company famous for its eyedrops or “artificial tears.” Details were sparse when this story first broke, but now we are beginning to see exactly what one female victim in Miami experienced when she used this product. To see that her life has been irrevocably changed would be a massive understatement. But what can you do if you were injured by a product such as EzriCare artificial tears? Can you sue? Let’s find out:

Woman Allegedly Forced to Remove Infected Eye After Using EzriCare 

The same Miami woman who sued EzriCare has now been forced to surgically remove her right eye – and she claims this is due to the artificial tears that the company sold her. The injury and the resulting surgery have apparently prevented her from enjoying her life as a grandmother, continuing her career, and much more. The plaintiff is now legally blind.

The bacteria that robbed her of her right eye is called Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and she claims that it was contained within EzriCare’s artificial tears. The parent company of EzriCare is Global Pharma Healthcare – an Indian company. EzriCare seems well aware of the risks associated with its teardrops, having recalled all related products back in early February. The CDC at the time made it clear that the artificial tears had been linked to the bacterial outbreak.

While the plaintiff in Miami has suffered horrific injuries linked to the artificial tears, she’s not alone. A total of 68 people across 16 different states have all been infected with the deadly bacteria. Three people have died, eight people have suffered vision loss, and four people have been forced to surgically remove their eyes. As strange as it may sound, the people who were forced to undergo these surgeries are the “lucky ones.” Without this surgical procedure, the victims may have lost their lives due to the spread of the bacteria. To make matters worse, the bacteria is resistant to drugs in the United States, leaving surgery as one of the few effective treatment options.

Many plaintiffs are now seeking justice – and EzriCare could be forced to pay considerable sums to cover their damages.
