Oral Sodium Phosphate (OSP)
Oral Sodium Phosphate (OSP) injuries call for the skills of a tireless attorney
Oral Sodium Phosphate (OSP) products, which are used for bowel cleansing before a colonoscopy or other procedures, may cause a serious kidney injury known as acute phosphate nephropathy.
If you were harmed by a dangerous drug such as OSP, the insurance company may try to limit or deny your claim, or say that you were negligent in the use of the product. We are familiar with the tactics insurance carriers use to not pay compensation to injury victims. If you have our firm on your side, you can rest assured we will take an aggressive stand against the insurance companies to pursue the full compensation you deserve.
Side effects of Oral Sodium Phosphate
Acute phosphate nephropathy, also known as nephrocalcinosis, occurs due to deposits of calcium-phosphate crystals in the renal tubes. People confronted with this condition may need dialysis or a kidney transplant. The condition is serious and potentially fatal, which may be grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit.
C.B. Fleet Co. manufactured OSP and voluntarily announced a recall of the product after a warning from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
OSP was prescribed under the names Visicol and OsmoPrep. It also was available as an over-the-counter OSP product called Fleet Phospho-soda EZ-prep, which can be used as a laxative.
