In addition to the 33 Da Vinci robot lawsuits now pending in state and federal court, Intuitive Surgical’s regulatory filing also disclosed that it had entered into tolling agreements in some additional claims that extend the statute of limitations for three to six months. In exchange, plaintiffs have agreed to file their claims in “certain agreed upon venues” should they ultimately proceed with a Da Vinci robot lawsuit. “The tolling agreements provide the parties and their legal counsel with additional time to evaluate the claims, to explore whether the claims have merit and whether they can be resolved without litigation,” the filing stated.
According to Wright & Schulte LLC, the mounting litigation is just one of several recent developments that have raised questions about the safety and efficacy of the Da Vinci robot. On July 16, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued Intuitive Surgical a warning letter after an inspection of its headquarters in Sunnyvale, California, revealed several problems in need of correction, according to a report from Bloomberg.com. Among other things, the FDA voiced concerns with Intuitive’s process for reporting device corrections and adverse events.

According to an earlier Bloomberg.com report, the Da Vinci robot has been associated with a growing number of a number of adverse event reports that detail possible Da Vinci surgery robot injuries, including some 70 deaths since 2009. Those reports have prompted the U.S. Food & Drug Administration to begin surveying doctors about the types of Da Vinci robot complications they may have observed in robotic surgery procedures.
