Shoulder Pain Pump Attorney
A shoulder pain pump lawsuit is a legal option for people who have suffered injuries as a result of using a shoulder pain pump device. Shoulder pain pump attorneys are injury lawyers who devote much of their practice to helping patients recover compensation for their losses.
Do You Have a Case?
Recent studies have linked the use of post-operative, intra-articular shoulder pain pumps following arthroscopic shoulder surgery to a rare, life-altering condition known as Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL).
If you suffer from any of the following symptoms following the use of a shoulder pain pump device, you may have a case:
- Pain when shoulder is in motion or at rest
- Shoulder stiffness
- Popping or grinding when shoulder is in motion
- Decrease in range of motion
- A loss of strength in the joint
Affected Shoulder Pain Pumps
The devices involved include those manufactured by Stryker Co., DJO Inc., I-Flow Co., BREG Inc. and several others. Most commonly used are:
- Stryker® PainPump 1®
- Stryker® PainPump 2®
- PainPump® Blockaid®
- On-Q® Painbuster®
- Donjoy® Pain Control Device
- Accufuser® Plus Pain Pump
How an Attorney Can Help
PAGCL is a condition that causes life-long hardships and problems. The makers and manufacturers of such devices have a responsibility to patients and healthcare providers. When a patient is harmed by their product, they should be held accountable and should have to compensate the injured for their losses.
Consult a Lawyer
If you or a loved one has developed cartilage damage or PAGCL following arthroscopic surgery, you should contact an attorney to find out whether you are eligible for compensation for your injuries.
