There have been many pain pump lawsuits filed lately against doctors, caregivers, and Medtronic (the maker of defective pain pumps) for overdoses and irreversible injuries that pain pumps have caused many people. These victims include those suffering from back pain or who had a hip, knee, or shoulder surgery in which pain pumps were used.
Some of the reasons for pain pump lawsuits in Kentucky, Ohio, and throughout the U.S. include:
- Defective pain pump devices
- Programming errors
- Delivery errors
- Improperly trained medical staff or caregivers
- Negligence administering medicine
Sometimes doctors or caregivers used an amount of the drug that was too high, causing an overdose that severely injured patients. Other times, the devices were found to be defective, causing overdoses and other irreversible problems. When too much medicine if given, a patient can overdose and suffer injuries, including:
- Anoxic brain damage
- Lung damage
- Organ failure
