28 Nov SPINAL-CORD STIMULATOR INJURIES
Posted By Gruenberg Kelly Della || 28-Nov-2018
Many pain management doctors are recommending spinal-cord stimulator implants to help clients with chronic pain experience relief. However, thousands of patients are experiencing disastrous injuries when their spinal-cord stimulators malfunction, stop working, or deliver excessive shocks.
An investigation by the Associated Press revealed that spinal-cord stimulators, which emit electrical currents to keep pain signals from reaching the brain, are far more dangerous than patients understand. A recent article by NBC News reports that more than 80,000 people with widely varying pain disorders have now been harmed by such devices.
What to Do if You’ve Been Injured by a Dangerous Medical Device or Implant
Many recipients have reported permanent nerve damage and severe physical harm as a result of these spinal implants. If you have been harmed by a spinal-cord stimulator device, you will likely incur large medical expenses and experience significant personal suffering as a result, which may provide grounds for a product liability lawsuit. Such action could allow you recover compensation for your medical costs, financial damages, and even intangible suffering—and it all starts with securing legal representation from an experienced personal injury litigator in your area.
