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.
