Injuries associated with recalled Eon and Eon Mini Charging Systems
- 1st-degree burns
- 2nd-degree burns
- Loss of charge, resulting in loss of pain relief
- Device removal (explant surgery)
- Complications with anesthesia
Eon and Eon Mini Implantable Pulse Generators (IPG) are devices manufactured by St. Jude Medical and are used to help manage chronic back pain through the use of electrical currents. The devices are implanted near the spine, providing spinal cord stimulation to help manage pain resulting from failed back surgery syndrome, severe nerve-related pain, and other chronic pain syndromes. Thousands of the IPG devices have been recalled due to serious injuries caused by battery issues.
According to the FDA, in some cases, the batteries would fail to keep their charge, preventing patients from access to pain relief. In other reported cases, the device would overheat while the patient was charging the battery, causing first and second degree burns.
We have straight answers to difficult questions to help you make critical decisions, navigate legal process and help you get justice.
A tort is a civil wrongful act committed by a person or company that results in harm to another person. A mass tort is when multiple victims are injured by the same single tort.
A court will consider if a mass tort lawsuit is permissible by determining:
Thousands of lawsuits across the country may be filed with a mass tort. These lawsuits are filed in numerous federal district courts. In a mass tort, federal judges will consolidate the thousands of lawsuits into a single proceeding. One judge in a single federal district court will oversee litigation, allowing for consistent rulings and a more expeditious process for the plaintiffs.
In a mass tort, each plaintiff (injured person) has an individual claim resulting from their unique damages. In a class action, many plaintiffs are considered collectively. Similarly, in a mass tort, each individual’s claim “value” is unique to the severity of their injuries. In a class action, plaintiffs generally suffer injuries of similar severity, resulting in the same amount of compensation value.
