Every day someone is hurt by a birth injury, car crash, truck accident, defective product or medical mistake.  In fact, recent statistics show that: 

  • Cerebral Palsy as a result of birth trauma and injury affects approximately 10,000 babies born in the United States each year causing permanent brain damage.
  • Defective medical devices and drugs are responsible for thousands of death and permanent injuries each year despite receiving approval from the FDA. Some drugs, like Yaz and Yasmin, never received FDA approval for uses that were marketed to the public.
  • There were 25,952 injury crashes in 2007 involving semi-trucks. 
  • 1 out of every 10 patients who died within 90 days of surgery did so because of a preventable medical error.  More than 90,000 patients die each year from medical malpractice.
  • Each year thousands of families are hurt by dangerous  conditions at hotels, stores, swimming pools and amusement parks including carbon monoxide poisoning, mold exposure, defective construction.

These statistics are alarming.  Even though the causes of injuries may vary, negligence is often a common factor.  A negligent doctor, hospital, driver or manufacturer can cause serious harm.  Severe injuries are usually accompanied by substantial medical expenses and in some cases, lost wages.

Testosterone Strokes and Blood Clots

 

Testosterone therapy / supplementation has been linked to a dramatic increase of up to 30% in risk of stroke, pulmonary embolism, blood clots, heart attack and death in a new study published in the Journal of American Medicine.

Stryker Triathalon Knee Replacement

The FDA notified healthcare professionals of a Class 1 recall for the Stryker Triathlon Knee replacement ShapeMatch cutting guide due to a software defect that results in wider cutting ranges. The parameters of the manufactured cutting guides may not meet the surgeon’s pre-operative planning parameters entered via the web application. Additionally, Stryker Orthopaedics determined that another software defect resulted in the displayed parameters (e.g. depth of resection, angle of cut) not matching the cutting guides produced. This may result in serious adverse health consequences including joint instability, fracture,need for revision surgery and chronic pain and limitations of mobility.

The FDA has received a total of 44 reports (41 malfunctions and 3 temporary medically reversible injuries) of incidents related to the ShapeMatch Cutting Guides.

The ShapeMatch Cutting Guides are single-use, disposable, cutting guides. They are intended to be used as surgical instrumentation to assist in the positioning of total knee replacement (arthroplasty) components intraoperatively and in guiding the marking of bone before cutting. In November 2012, Stryker Orthopaedics e-mailed field locations, registered surgeons and imaging centers of the problem and to immediately stop prescribing, planning or performing operative or imaging procedures with the ShapeMatch Cutting Guides until further notice.

In January 2013, a Product Notification was issued to all branches, agencies, surgeons and risk managers at affected hospitals informing them of the problem and risk mitigation factors. On April 10, 2013, Stryker issued an Urgent Medical Device Recall.

The ShapeMatch Cutting Guides have not been available on the market since November 2012. Stryker is recommending patients who had knee replacement surgery in which ShapeMatch Cutting Guides were used and who are experiencing symptoms to contact  their surgeon. If symptom-free, the patient should continue to follow-up with the surgeon as scheduled.

Healthcare professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of these products to the FDA's MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program.

If you have experienced pain, instability, fracture or had a revision surgery from your Stryker Triathalon Knee from May 2011 to November 2012, please contact our firm to discuss your legal rights.

Pradaxa Risk of Bleeding & Heart Attack


The drug Pradaxa is widely prescribed as a replacement for Coumadin and Warfarin to treat blood clots caused by atrial fibrillation.  Recent studies reveal that Pradaxa can increase the risk of heart attack in patients by more than 30% over those taking other forms of blood thinners.  Also, there have been many reports of deaths caused by severe internal bleeding.  The law firm of Schachter, Hendy & Johnson has extensive experience representing people who have been hurt or killed by dangerous drugs and medical devices.  If you or a loved one has suffered an injury after taking Pradaxa, you have a right to know if this drug is the cause.  Our firm will fight to make sure that you are compensated for your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
