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.

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.

A court will consider if a mass tort lawsuit is permissible by determining:

  • whether a large number of plaintiffs are involved
  • whether the plaintiffs are located near or far from each other;
  • whether the injuries sustained are similar among the plaintiffs;
  • whether the claims arose from the same cause (defective toy, car part, oil spill, etc.)

Defective products, such as car parts, toys, or other consumer goods.

Pharmaceutical drugs, such as those that are later linked to severe or fatal health consequences Environmental hazards, such as polluted water sources contaminated by nearby industrial sites or an oil leak.

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.

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.
