CHICAGO — An estate administrator is suing Abbott Laboratories, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare Holdings US LLC and several other companies for alleged breach of implied warranty, breach of warranty, fraud and product liability.
Luzena Clay, special administrator of the estate of Luther Clay Jr., filed a complaint on April 26 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging Luther Clay Jr. died from acute and chronic kidney injuries that allegedly were caused by long-term exposure to proton pump inhibitors. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to include warnings on their product and for allegedly failing to inform physicians, pharmacists and consumers about the risk of kidney inflammation due to using their product.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants for compensatory damages, interest and the costs of the lawsuit. She is represented by Welson T. Chu of the Nolan Law Group in Chicago and Daniel N. Gallucci and Joanne E. Matuska of Nastlaw LLC in Philadelphia.
