Five Shoulder Pain Pump Settlements in Ohio


Posted on Apr 28, 2010

On March 16, 2010, I-Flow Corp., a shoulder pain pump manufacturer, agreed to settle five lawsuits over complications arising from the use of their shoulder pain pumps. The law firm of Schachter, Hendy & Johnson PSC, which has settled more pain pump cases than any firm in the country, settled these five lawsuits a week after Judge Spiegel denied summary judgment.

Also, on the same day the settlements were reached, U.S. Judge S. Arthur Spiegel denied a motion for a summary judgment in the cases.

The plaintiffs alleged that the use of the I-Flow pain pumps caused their shoulder cartilage to deteriorate. Pain medication was infused directly into the shoulder joint through a catheter. As a result, the victims suffered from chondrolysis of the shoulder.

According to reports, there are approximately 150 shoulder pain pump lawsuits pending against I-Flow and other manufacturers. The suits allege that the manufacturers did not properly warn of the risks associated with the use of the shoulder pain pumps. The suits cite that the pain pumps were marketed as an alternative to oral pain medication. Also according to the lawsuits filed, the FDA never approved the procedure recommended by the manufacturers.

While many of these cases are proceeding through the litigation process as individual lawsuits, some have been consolidated into small groups, such as the Ohio cases.  When including these five cases, a total of 16  pain pump lawsuits have been settled.
