Defective Product Claims We Handle
From medical devices to products off store shelves, any type of product can cause severe injuries when corporations fail to ensure consumer safety. Some defective product claims we handle include:
- DePuy Hip Recall
Premature failures of two popular hip replacement products have caused Johnson & Johnson’s artificial joint replacement company, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., to pay nearly $2.5 billion in settlements to patients who required additional hip surgeries.
- Forced-Air Warming Blankets
Used to help regulate the patients’ body temperatures during surgery, forced-air warming blankets are used in a majority of U.S. hospitals. But the devices may spread bacteria to surgical sites, which can potentially increase the risk of hospital infections.
- IVC Filters
Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are implanted into patients to prevent arterial blockage and pulmonary embolism. But IVC filters can break or migrate from the implant site, and the device or its pieces can travel to areas of the body that aren’t reachable by surgeons.
Asbestos is a fire-retardant insulator used in a variety of industries. But exposure to asbestos fibers can put workers and their families at risk of developing mesothelioma, a deadly cancer that affects the membranes lining the abdominal cavity and internal organs.
- Mirena® IUD
The Mirena IUD is implanted into a woman’s uterus for up to five years at a time. But the device can migrate within the body, causing painful internal injuries, scarring, and even infertility.
- Morcellator Cancer
Morcellator devices are used to perform thousands of hysterectomy and myomectomy procedures every year. But when women who undergo these procedures have undetected cancers, morcellators can spread cancerous tissue to other areas of the body.
- Stryker® Hip Recall
The metal-on-metal hip socket joints on certain Stryker® replacement hip models can wear down over time, which can lead to metallosis—a buildup of metal debris in the body’s soft tissues.
- Talcum Powder
Talcum powder has long been used to prevent moisture and chafing. But women who use talcum powder or products containing talc in the genital area may face an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.
- Transvaginal Mesh
Transvaginal mesh (TVM) is implanted to hold internal organs in place in women who suffer from stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. But TVM has been linked to a variety of painful internal injuries that often require additional corrective surgeries.
- Zimmer Persona® Knee Implant
Certain components of the Zimmer Persona total knee replacement system can loosen within the knee, causing side effects that can require additional surgery to correct.
