Surgery Lead To An Infection?
Bair Hugger Lawsuit
You might be entitled to compensation.
The forced air surgical warming blanket lawsuit states the manufacturers of warming blankets, such as Bair Hugger, knew about the increased risks of joint infections linked with the use of the warming blanket machines during hip and knee replacement surgeries, but didn't redesign the machine to make it safer, and also did not warn healthcare providers of the infection risk. In fact, the lawsuit states the manufacturers attempted to hide and discredit any scientific research that found an increased risk of hip and knee infections with the use of the machines.

Taking legal action does two things: a lawsuit enables individuals to hold large manufacturers accountable for their actions, possibly reducing the risk of others experiencing the same complications. It also helps families and individuals who suffer obtain fair financial compensation to cover the costs associated with the injury.
