How to File a Stem Cell Lawsuit


Many people are upset that stem cells are harvested from embryos in such high numbers, and that human embryonic stem cells are used for transplants and research. Embryonic stem cells are one of the “aceuticals” that can be purchased over-the-counter without a prescription. These cells can be harvested from either the egg or the sperm. The controversy surrounding stem cell lawsuits centers on the fact that these embryos were cloned in a laboratory, rather than from a person’s fertilized or conceived eggs.

Stem cell lawsuits can be brought by anyone who has been damaged by stem cell product use.

Cloning human embryonic stem cells is controversial, because some people feel that it goes against ethical law. To collect and use human embryonic stem cells, medical research facilities purchase egg cells from fertility clinics at low cost, in order to use these cells in research and treatment. If a consumer is injured by this type of product, they may be able to obtain monetary compensation for past and future medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. (You may also have a valid claim if a company sells products that are falsely advertised as being based on stem cells.)

While it is true that the controversy surrounding stem cell therapies is due primarily to the issue of animal rights, there is also a concern about safety and abuse of human stem cells.

In the past, stem cell product use has resulted in an increased number of wrongful death lawsuits, particularly when embryonic stem cells were being harvested for research purposes. Today, however, as more sophisticated safety measures have been put into place, more people are filing these types of lawsuits, as well as more companies are using safer stem cell therapies.

When deciding whether or not to file a stem cell lawsuit, you should consult with a qualified attorney.

He or she will assess the case and determine whether or not it is meritorious. The key issue that will come up during the litigation process is whether or not the embryonic stem cell therapies that were the subject of the lawsuit were conducted in an illegal and abusive manner. While it is unlikely that the courts will take seriously a lawsuit regarding cell harvesting from a person who has already died, the courts may take the case if it is found that the tissue harvested was taken without the subject’s permission.

It is currently illegal to use embryonic stem cells for research purposes in the U.S., as the embryonic stem cells harvested are from embryos that must be grown in a lab for at least three weeks, and in some cases, even longer.

While it may not seem like an issue, if the lawyers can prove that you were indeed the victim of wrongful and illegal stem cell product therapies, you have a strong case. Your attorney will be able to go before a jury and convince them that you have a valid claim to seek compensation for your injuries. If your attorney can prove that you were the victim of illegal and wrongful cell therapies, he or she may be able to receive compensation for both past and present medical costs, pain and suffering due to your injuries, lost wages and the effects of suffering and future medical care costs.

Many states also have laws against fraud and deceit related to stem cells, so it is important to contact your state’s regulatory authority to see what sort of protection or measures your state has in place.

If the state does not have protective measures in place or believe you have a valid claim to pursue, it is possible for you to file suit against the company from whom you received stem cell products. The statute of limitations varies from state to state, so it may be possible to obtain justice even after your stem cell lawsuit has been denied.
