Surgical Staples Lawsuit
A lawsuit over faulty surgical staples can result in compensation for the patient and his or her family. One such lawsuit involves the failure of an Ethicon surgical stapler to seal a surgical area properly. This allowed the patient’s stomach contents to spill into the intestinal cavity and lead to death. The device’s design and manufacturing are blamed for the deadly injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered a similar injury, consider filing a surgical staples lawsuit. If you were harmed by surgical staples, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses and loss of income.

A skilled surgical staple attorney can help you file a claim for compensation. Your lawsuit will seek compensation for your medical expenses, past and future loss of income, and pain and suffering.
