In November 2012, Stryker acknowledged manufacturing defects in the ShapeMatch Cutting Guide and instructed surgeons to discontinue use. This knee replacement recall was because  the software has a defect that causes wider cutting ranges. As a result, knee replacement patients may experience severe complications such as instability of the joint, fracture, chronic pain, and mobility limitations. Patients may also require the need for revision surgery.

Lawyers Filing Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits For Baby Powder

Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits Do You Want To File A Baby Powder Cancer Lawsuit?

Studies show that talcum-based powder can  cause ovarian cancer in women who have used it for genital/perineal hygiene. Studies dating back to 1982 have consistently linked prolonged talc-based baby and body powder usage with ovarian cancer.  The talc particles moves  through the female reproductive system and settles in the ovaries. These particles may remain in the ovaries for many years, creating inflammation resulting in the development and proliferation of cancer cells. Studies HAVE Linked  Ovarian Cancer to Talc-Based Baby/Body Powder The pathology reports and tissue samples that were used to diagnose the ovarian cancer can now be examined to determine whether your ovarian tissues contain talc particles.  Talc particles can be found in the pelvic lymph nodes, ovaries, and fallopian tubes and take many years to disintegrate and exit the body. The talcum powder cancer lawyers at Class Action Lawyer Network are speaking to women about  talc having  caused your ovarian cancer.

Was There Sufficient Warning For Boston Transvaginal Mesh Victims?

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Medical Device Lawsuits, Transvaginal mesh

Did The Manufacturers Of The Transvaginal Mesh And Bladder Sling Give Sufficient Warning?

Boston Vaginal Mesh Lawyers say no in the thousands of transvaginal mesh and bladder sling claims that have been filed in the Pelvic Mesh Repair Lawsuits MDL'Ls.

According to transvaginal mesh lawyers accross the country who are filing vaginal mesh and bladder sling lawsuits the warning was insufficient. For a warning to be sufficient, a transvaginal mesh warning  should appropriately signal danger while simultaneously providing the information in order to use the product appropriately.  A  pharmaceutical or medical device  manufacturer doesn’t necessarily have to discuss matters that are basic medical knowledge.  They are not in a position to control the individual practices  of doctors in every single medical community. 

 Will The Device  Warnings The Transvaginal meshmanufacturers provided  to the doctor relieve them of their duty to warn the patient.

What are some ways that warnings can become inadequate?  Some variables that courts will consider include:  If they are overly broad or too generic, contradictory statements made in the inserts, actions by the sales representatives, and presenting the warning in a way that makes it unlikely to be read.  Remember, every case is different.  In some cases, a doctor might not even bother to read the warnings.  In other cases, the possibility of an adverse reaction is too small to even impact the doctor’s decision.  There have even been cases where a doctor has stated that even if he were given new information, he would have still followed through with his initial decision.

What other possible legal theories being explored?  If a company supplies product related information to the public that amounts to an express warranty, they can be held liable for breach of warranty if the plaintiff can successfully prove that the information was false.

We will be watching the pelvic mesh repair proceedings and waiting to see how they play out.
