The 3M Bair Hugger is a device that is used on patients to regulate their temperature. This device is utilized primarily during hip and knee replacement surgeries. There are other applications as well.
Bair Hugger manufacturer 3M, knew the potential risk of joint infections while using their warming blanket machines following surgeries. However, they did not redesign the device.
Lawsuits have stated that 3M attempted to hide and discredit scientific research that found an increased risk of hip and knee infections with the use of the machine.
In fact, the lawsuits are from patients who underwent hip or knee surgery and left the hospital with serious deep joint infections. In many cases these infections required more surgeries and painful. costly recoveries.
Medical device manufacturers have a duty to develop safe products to health care professionals and patients. It’s not right if 3M and Arizant fail to properly test their machines. When businesses knowingly market & distribute these dangerous products, it’s only right to hold them accountable for punitive damages.
If you or a loved one believe they have suffered injuries from a Bair Hugger device, you could be eligible for compensation.
