The Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, announces that it is currently
evaluating cases involving infections due to the use of the Bair Hugger
forced-air warming blanket.
We are considering cases where individuals who had hip or knee replacement
surgery during the last five years and developed periprosthetic joint
infection. This is an infection caused by bacteria entering the blood
stream. This infection can cause serious effects, including additional
hospitalization or additional surgeries.
Please contact our office for a free consultation if the following apply
to you or a loved one:
- Hip or knee replacement surgery within the last five years;
- Subsequent diagnosis of Periprosthetic Joint Infection (“PJI”);
- Resulting in complications including hospitalization, surgery, loss of
limb, delayed recovery, or pain and suffering.
If those apply we can assist in determining if you have a possible legal
claim by ordering and reviewing your medical records to determine if the
Bair Hugger forced air warming blanked was used. There is no charge for our
initial review of your case.
