The Medtronic Infuse Bone Grafts have caused injuries and serious complications to hundreds of patients across the nation. The Infuse Bone Graft is a device manufactured by Medtronic that is implanted between vertebrae to fuse the fractured or broken bones together. The FDA approved the device for one procedure: a lumbar spine surgery approached from the anterior. Any other use was off-label, and in the case of cervical spine surgery, warned against. The serious side effects and complications resulting from the use of this dangerous device has led many to file product liability claims against Medtronic. Lawsuits against Medtronic allege the company fraudulently misrepresented the dangers and advantages of using the Infuse Bone Graft, and illegally marketed the product for off-label uses.
If you or a loved one has been harmed after undergoing an Infuse treatment, you may be entitled to receive compensation from Medtronic for your injury related damages. A professional Medtronic Infuse lawsuit attorney can help you negotiate and even litigate the company in order to secure the full and fair compensation you deserve. Before you entrust your case to an attorney, it is important to select a mass tort lawyer who will assess the value of your claim based on the damages you suffered, including:
- Past and future medical bills
- Hospitalization costs
- Revision surgery
- Lost wages / earnings
- Disability payments
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced or lost earnings capacity.
Why a Class Action Suit May Undermine Your Rightful Compensation
Despite what class action lawyers will claim, it is unlikely you will receive a fair compensation through a successful class action lawsuit. Any settlement or verdict in a class action suit will be shared amongst everyone who may have been eligible to file a claim. Regardless of the damages you may have been entitled to recover via an individual claim, your class action compensation will only amount to a fraction of the settlement. While a class action lawsuit is appropriate in cases where a large number of individuals experienced minor financial losses, if your Infuse related injuries have accrued thousands of dollars in damages, it is crucial to entrust your case to an experienced Medtronic Infuse mass torts attorney
What is a Mass Tort Lawsuit?
A mass tort lawsuit represents a collection of plaintiffs who have suffered damages from the same cause. But unlike a class action lawsuit, each case is still separate from another and is only grouped together so attorneys can pool their resources, research, and investigations. This enables lawyers to cut down on their expenses and amass enough manpower to begin litigating large corporate defense firms. Although lawsuits are filed collectively, each claimant is independent and will receive compensation according to the damages the plaintiff incurred from use of a defective product.
