Surgical Staples Attorneys in El Paso & Las Cruces
At the Ruhmann Law Firm, our surgical stapler injury lawyers in Las Cruces & El Paso are skilled mass torts attorneys who focus on providing positive outcomes for our injured clients after they have been hurt by medical devices that manufacturers knowingly knew could cause serious injuries or death.
Unfortunately, the manufacturers of certain surgical staplers underreported the risks for years, causing significant harm to our New Mexico and Texas residents, when they were able to survive their injuries. Others paid for the manufacturer’s negligence with their lives, and our Dona Ana County and El Paso County surgical stapler lawyers want to help the injured and the families who lost their loved ones hold them accountable for their recklessness.
What is the Basis of the New Mexico and Texas Surgical Stapler Lawsuits?
Our surgical stapler attorneys in Las Cruces & El Paso are filing lawsuits against the manufacturers by claiming the medical devices malfunctioned, firing malformed staples that caused infections, serious injuries like internal bleeding and organ damage, or death when used in operations.
While some surgical stapler device risks have been reclassified and other defective devices have been recalled, including Medtronic and Ethicon products that combined have recalled more than over three million staplers, staples, and components since in less than a decade.
Even with the recalls and awareness surrounding these defective devices, in most cases, the injuries to our residents remain, and require an experienced approach to pursuing the financial recovery they deserve.
