Cohen, Placitella & Roth, P.C. Reminds NECC Victims of January 15, 2014 Claim Filing Deadline to Participate in any Bankruptcy Court distributions
Date:1/8/2014

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With one week to go until the 4:00 PM EST January 15, 2014 filing deadline, Cohen, Placitella & Roth, P.C. is reminding victims of the contaminated medications compounded and distributed by the now defunct New England Compounding Company to file their Proof of Claims and completed questionnaire forms (which is entitled "PITWD Addendum") with claims agent Donlin Recano by the deadline date.  "The forms must actually be in hands of the claims administrator before the deadline and not just postmarked by that date," says CPR shareholder Harry M. Roth. "With the recent $100 million proposed settlements with NECC's insurance companies and corporate insiders, timely filing claims is essential in order to participate in the bankruptcy and share in these recoveries." Proof of claims forms and the questionnaire are available at http://www.drcdrx.com/necpcc/ProofOfClaim.

CPR has been in the vanguard of attorneys representing victims of the NECC fungal meningitis outbreak following the outbreak became public. The firm represents numerous victims of NECC compounded medication, including the family of one of the earliest fatalities linked to NECC's contaminated MPA steroid medication. Members of CPR currently serve as co-chairs of the NECC Bankruptcy's Official Creditors Committee, which participated in negotiating the NECC settlements. The firm is serving on the negotiation teams that are currently engaged in attempting to work out additional settlements with other companies and clinics involved in what has been described as the largest health care generated infection disease epidemics in American history. According to CDC monitoring reports, there are 751 fungal infection victims spread over 20 states with 64 deaths associated with the victims. In New Jersey, where the firm is highly active in the prosecution of the case, CDC reports 51 confirmed cases of serious infection. CPR's investigation has learned that are many more patients in New Jersey than these 51 patients who were exposed to NECC's contaminated steroid medications at several clinics or doctors' offices. "If you were exposed or believe you may have been exposed to a contaminated NECC medication, the best thing to do is to file a proof of claim by the deadline in order to preserve your rights," according to Roth.
