Chuck Norris' wife is seeking more than $10 million in compensation through three different MRI contrast dye lawsuit claims.

I am not the sort of person that sues when something goes wrong. Is it really necessary to file a lawsuit?

Most American families would rather not get involved in a lawsuit, for a variety of reasons. But if you or a loved one has suffered from a severe illness causes by a dangerous medical device or drug, you are bound to encounter significant medical fees. Between treatment, hospital stays, long term care, lost income, and other costs, the medical expenses can be enough to cripple a family financially. The cost of healthcare is constantly rising, making it impossible to predict how much you may ultimately require to cover medical costs. Furthermore, no amount of money can undo the wrong caused by a dangerous drug or medical device. An MRI lawsuit can recover financial security for your family and highlight a company's violation of consumer trust. Many corporations only improve their safety standards when the threat of major litigation forces their hand. In addition to helping your own family get the compensation that you deserve, your lawsuit may pressure a company to become a better corporate citizen and prevent other patients from suffering the same fate in the future.
