Raptiva recall attorneys are counseling Raptiva users and their families regarding the side effects of Raptiva use. Raptiva was sold as a treatment for psoriasis. It has been linked to a fatal brain infection. Raptiva’s maker, Genentech, pulled Raptiva off the market after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning in February in response to three deaths linked Raptiva to Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML), a brain infection.
Brain infection is not the only serious side effect that Raptiva is causing patients. Other more serious conditions associated with Raptiva treatments include anemia (low blood cell counts); psoriatic arthritis (damage to the joints); and low platelet counts. If PML is not treated right away, it can turn fatal.

The first step, if you have been seriously injured by Raptiva side effects, is to get immediate medical attention. Once you have done that, contact an experienced Raptiva recall lawyer immediately to determine your rights and options regarding making a claim and possibly filing a Raptiva lawsuit.
For those who have suffered side effects, Raptiva attorneys will seek money damages for your losses. Recoverable losses include medical costs, expenses for long-term treatment programs, loss of income or earnings (or ability to work) as well as physical and emotional pain and suffering.
If you have lost a family member because of Raptiva side effects, it is within your rights to make a claim for wrongful death against the drug manufacturer, Genentech. A wrongful death claim is usually made when a death involves negligence or wrongdoing.
