Lawsuits have now been filed against the makers of some power morcellation devices, alleging women were harmed by the use of the devices. The power morcellator lawsuits allege the use of a morcellator device resulted in an aggressive cancer-spreading throughout the patient’s body.
Lawsuits against a number of morcellator manufacturers have already been filed by women who have been diagnosed with a deadly cancer after having the medical device used during a hysterectomy or fibroid removal surgery. Our lawyers are talking to women across the country. Don’t hesitate to call us for a free consultation if you or a loved one was diagnosed with cancer after a power morcellation surgery. You have rights and it’s time to hold Johnson & Johnson accountable for making the device and hiding the risks.
What is a Power Morcellator?
These medical devices are used during laparoscopic procedures to cut the uterus into tiny pieces that can be removed through minimally invasive surgery.
What about the FDA?
The FDA issued a warning in 2014 stating that the potential risks of spreading cancerous tissues through the body is too great and that morcellators should not be used. Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturer, suspended all sales and manufacturing. Of course, that suspension did nothing for the patients who had already undergone surgery using a power morcellator.
Since the FDA warning was issued, numerous lawsuits have been filed against manufacturers of power morcellators by women who have suffered from life-threatening cancer as a result of its use during surgeries. Thousands of other victims have not yet stepped forward, but the number increases by the day.
