Bair Hugger Forced Air Warming Blanket Device

Let Our Dangerous & Defective Medical Device Lawyers in Birmingham Fight for You

Recently, Bair Hugger forced air warming blanket devices from 3M Co. have been linked to increased rates of serious prosthetic joint infection and deep joint infection. Used in the operating room to keep patients warm before and during surgery, the devices have been connected with increased contaminant circulation leading to infection. Hare Wynn is currently accepting cases involving total hip or knee replacement or resurfacing patients who were implanted with a prosthetic joint prior to 2009, required subsequent revision surgery, and developed a severe infection requiring surgical intervention following the use of a Bair Hugger device.

If you believe that you may have a case for a Bair Hugger lawsuit, contact our dangerous and defective medical device attorneys at (855) 997-9319 for a complimentary case evaluation.

Common Consequences of Severe Joint Infection

Both severe prosthetic joint infection and deep joint infection have serious, long-lasting consequences.

Treatment for such infections can be costly, life-altering, and may include any of the following:

  • Surgical intervention
  • Hospitalization
  • Long-term IV antibiotics
  • Infection disease/wound specialty care

Certain individuals are more susceptible to post-surgery infection, including those who have diabetes, compromised immune systems, are smokers, or are morbidly obese. However, if you are an otherwise healthy individual who suffered a serious infection after the use of a Bair Hugger forced air warming blanket device, you may be entitled to just compensation to assist with associated damages.
