Da Vinci Robotic Surgery News: Insurance Company's Alleged Concealment of Da Vinci Robot Lawsuits Draws Comment from Wright & Schulte LLC
Date:11/3/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 03, 2013

Bloomberg News is reporting that Intuitive Surgical, Inc. has been sued by one of its insurers for allegedly concealing Da Vinci robot lawsuits involving its Da Vinci Surgical System. The company reported in October that it had been named in at least 50 Da Vinci surgery lawsuits alleging injury and death due to the robotic surgery platform. In a complaint filed on October 21, 2013 in U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, the insurer claimed it was not informed that 25 Da Vinci lawsuits were pending against Intuitive when it issued the company a product liability insurance policy for the term of March 1, 2013 through March 1, 2014. (Illinois Union Insurance v. Intuitive Surgical, 13-cv-04863)

According to the lawsuit, potential policy holders are required to provide insurers with material facts regarding risk when they apply for coverage. Illinois Union claims that had it been made aware of the Da Vinci robot lawsuits during the application process, it would not have extended coverage to Intuitive Surgical. It seeks to have the policy rescinded.

According to Wright & Schulte LLC, controversy has surrounded the Da Vinci Surgical System in recent months, as questions about both its safety and effectiveness have continued to mount. In July, Intuitive Surgical received a warning letter from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), after an inspection by the agency found problems with the way it reported patient injuries.

Bloomberg News had previously reported that in the first eight months of this year, there had been a sharp rise in Da Vinci robot complication reports to the FDA. For its part, Intuitive Surgical said in that the growing litigation surrounding the robot was responsible for the increase, as any Da Vinci surgery complications alleged in the claims were required to be reported to the FDA. In January, the FDA began to survey doctors who use the Da Vinci to determine if the increase in adverse event reports reflected a problem with the technology itself.
