Patients who have suffered injury or harm from Bair Hugger do have legal rights to compensation. Lawsuits are being filed throughout the United States against the company who made and sold this medication. Like all civil lawsuits, there are specific deadlines for filing these cases. These deadlines, or time limits, are referred to as “statute of limitations” and vary from state to state. Our State Lawsuits For Bair Hugger Injury Cases page has an interactive map that allows you to click on your state to learn more about the filing time limits in your state.
Recently, concerns have been growing that complications caused by Bair Hugger warming blankets, which are surgical blankets used to regulate patients body temperature during surgeries, are serious and threatening. Lawsuits have already been filed against the makers of the device, 3M. A Michigan resident who underwent hip replacement surgery in 2012 has filed a lawsuit against the makers of the Bair Hugger warming blanket. The lawsuit was filed on July 25th, 2015 and claims that the Bair Hugger warming blanket blew bacteria-contaminated air directly on to the patient. This ended up in serious infection that required three additional surgeries; the removal of the implant, cleaning of the hip and dead tissue removal, and removal of most of this right thigh muscle. The patient now is permanently limited in his mobility as a result of the infections.
Limb amputation is a very involved surgical procedure that requires extensive planning and rehabilitation. Besides the obvious resulting physical limitations, losing an arm or leg can have a profound emotional effect on the individual. Lawsuits in these types of cases seek compensation for the cost of the procedure and the cost of future doctor’s visits, including the design and installment of artificial limbs. Additionally, they seek payment for the emotional distress many feel after losing an arm or leg.
