Texas Law Firm Files Multiple Suits Against Medtronic as Deadline Approaches
Date:8/11/2009

FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Fort Worth personal injury attorney John David Hart has filed 29 lawsuits against Medtronic, Inc., Medtronic International Technology, Inc. f/k/a Medtronic Puerto Rico, Inc., Medtronic USA, Inc. and Medtronic Puerto Rico Operations Co., in connection with heart defibrillator leads recalled due to the risk of lead fractures which could result in serious injury or death.

Minneapolis, Minnesota-based pharmaceutical company Medtronic, Inc. recalled its Sprint Fidelis

Defibrillator Leads, models 6930, 6931, 6948 and 6949 on October 15, 2007. According to the FDA the leads were recalled because of the potential for fracture which can result in the defibrillator delivering unnecessary shocks or not delivering life-saving shocks to the patient.

Filing deadlines are approaching as the statute of limitations may expire on October 15, 2009 in many states. Hart has filed suit on behalf of clients from seven states, including Texas, Florida, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

"Many patients with these devices may not be aware of these deadlines," said attorney John David Hart of the Law Offices of John David Hart. "This device is dangerous and we plan on protecting our clients' rights in court."

Implantable Cardiac Defibrillators (ICDs) and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Defibrillators (CRT-Ds) monitor heart rhythms and deliver a shock to restore normal rhythm when life-threatening, irregular heartbeats are detected. The defibrillators are surgically implanted and are connected directly to the patient's heart by thin wires called leads.

"It is our hope that everyone who has been injured by this device is aware of the deadlines that are in place and that they take appropriate action to protect their legal rights," Mr. Hart says.
