Who Is Eligible To File A Claim?

If you or a loved one have been harmed by a damaged or defective medical device you may be eligible to file a claim. Medical device claims are complicated and it can be difficult to find an attorney qualified to help you with your claim.

As of June 2023, there are no class-action lawsuits for the Bard PowerPort device. If you have a PowerPort device but have not experienced any problems, you are not eligible to file a claim. But, that may change.

Why Should I File A Lawsuit?

There is evidence the makers of Bard PowerPort knew or should have known there was a problem with the device. Furthermore, the company has made no efforts to fix the device or warn people of the higher rate of failures. Lawsuits provide financial motivation for companies that don’t care about customer safety.

Money doesn’t completely fix an injury or bring a deceased loved one back to life. But, money can help the injured to afford the medical and psychiatric care they need.

An injury lawsuit is about accountability. Holding a negligent company accountable can force it to change. Sometimes, it takes multiple lawsuits by many different people to force change. This change can protect others. By filing an injury lawsuit, you can force a company to acknowledge its mistake and help force it to change to prevent future harm to others.
