Harrisburg Law Firm Opens Doors to Eon Mini IPG Allegedly Injured Parties
Date:8/22/2013

Harrisburg, PA (PRWEB) August 22, 2013

In May 2011, St. Jude Medical recalled the Eon Mini Implantable Pulse Generator following reports of adversity associated with the devices. By July 26, 2012, when an advisory update from St. Jude was issued, complaints filed in association with the item had numbered 214.

But with people implanted with the device numbering in the tens of thousands, the Eon Mini IPG lawyers of Handler Henning & Rosenberg are concerned that numerous additional parties may have been put through a painful explantation procedure or otherwise suffered some type of injury allegedly due to the recalled items. As a result, the firm is announcing its intention to provide its legal services, starting with a free consultation, to those who claim to have been injured by the Eon or the Eon Mini IPG (interested parties can click the above link for more information).

“When this recall was issued, it was unknown how widespread this problem was,” said lead attorney David H Rosenberg. “But much of the feedback we’ve received confirms our suspicions that this is a matter worth pursuing. We believe that all those persons who have been implanted by an Eon IPG deserve to at the very least be offered a fair shot at compensation.”

The firm has taken it upon itself to outline the situation from its genesis so that affected individuals can be kept well-informed and know their rights moving forward (for the full list of St. Jude recall alerts, which include details of the investigation and reports of patient adversity, click here):

•The Eon and the Eon Mini Implantable Pulse Generators were developed by St. Jude Medical as a means to treat pain caused by a neurologic condition. Rather than submit to an intensive medication regime, patients who opt for an implantation procedure are supposed to benefit from Eon-emitted electrical pulses that are designed to stimulate the production of painkilling endorphins in the body.

•May 2011- St. Jude issues a recall update based off of adversity reports from patients. At the time, it was believed that moisture could make its way inside the battery units and cause the development of internal cracks, which could then prompt overheating or total device failure.

•July 2012- An update to the previous recall announcement is sent out, this time relating the inadequacies of third party tools used during the production of the battery.

•While this was happening, patients were reportedly suffering from myriad issues associated with the failure of the Eon or Eon Mini. When the battery overheats or the device fails, the patient can allegedly feel pain or a burning sensation in the vicinity of the device. Upon failure, the pain heralding from the original condition may also come back.

•To correct the failure, patients have to endure an explantation procedure (surgical removal) and all attendant complications of the procedure.

It is unknown exactly how many people may have been allegedly affected by the device, which is why Handler Henning & Rosenberg is asking parties who believe they were injured by the device to get in touch with the firm. The firm is offering free consultations to such persons and, while this is not a promise of legal representation, the discussion is designed to inform allegedly injured parties of their rights and explain how the legal process might work moving forward. Recipients of the Eon or the Eon Mini IPG are encouraged to contact the firm’s defective medical device lawyers as soon as possible.

Handler Henning & Rosenberg has been assisting injured parties for more than 90 years. David H Rosenberg and Gregory M. Feather and the attorneys at Handler, Henning & Rosenberg, LLP, offer representation to those injured in a host of practice areas, including motor vehicle crashes, defective pharmaceuticals and medical devices, premises liability, mesothelioma , and more. Those injured by the Eon or the Eon Mini IPG may call to obtain a free consultation or visit HHRLaw.com to learn more about the firm’s services.
