Sue Medtronic For Defective Infuse Bone Graft
According to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), Medtronic Infuse Bone Grafts is only approved for use in the lower back and only with Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) surgery. However, a number of studies released by Medtronic-sponsored doctors promoted several “off-label,” meaning unapproved, uses of the product.
As a result, the Medtronic may be held liable for damages caused by the implantation of the Infuse Bone Graft, if the procedure is considered an “off-label” procedure. Patients who have suffered significant injuries do have legal rights and may be able to sue Medtronic for complications arising out of the defective medical device. These lawsuits seek damages for:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical costs incurred to date
- Medical expenses for any future treatment or surgery
- Lost wages
- Spousal damages
- Punitive damages
