Ethicon Class-Action Lawsuit Due To Malfunctioning Surgical Staplers

Doctor In Surgery

Ethicon Stapler Commercial, which have shined a light on the mounting legal claims, have also caused many to ask whether a class-action should be brought against the manufacturer of the medical device. Indeed, if so many have been harmed, why would the victims not formalize their independent claims into a single effort?

Is There A Class-Action Lawsuit Against Ethicon?

Ethicon itself is the manufacturer of the faulty surgical stapler though it remains a subdivision of the Johnson & Johnson corporation. It would make sense that the lawsuits are brought against the parent company and, in fact, they already have.

Dozens of cases involving faulty Ethicon staplers are already being investigated. Regrettably, with how widespread the use of the device was, many others could also get their day in court. Nevertheless, those cases which are active have not been formed into a class-action. That is to say, all Ethicon lawsuits as of this writing are being litigated individually.

It bears noting that there exists a precedent for lawsuits dealing with faulty staplers. In the past, settlements of tens of millions were awarded to affected families. How can such substantial amounts of money be awarded by a court?

How Much Is An Ethicon Stapler Lawsuit Worth?

It's understandable for victims of defective products to wonder how much they could receive in compensation for their injuries. Unfortunately, there is no calculator for how much a case may be worth.

At the end of the day, an experienced attorney may be able to provide some guidance on the potential outcomes of a case. However, none would offer a concrete answer. This is because all cases are different from each other. Consider that financial compensation can include:

  • Past medical expenses
  • Ongoing/future/ medical treatment & therapy
  • Funeral or burial expenses
  • Loss of wages
  • Emotional & physical pain

These are only a few of the factors figure into a settlement calculation. However, you can garner how different individuals may have damages to a different extent in each of these categories.
