If Intuitive Surgical was aware of the faults of the da Vinci and did not warn of the risks, then it should be held accountable in court.
(PRWEB) August 20, 2013
A New Jersey woman has filed a da Vinci lawsuit in federal court alleging she underwent a robot surgery that left her with severe bowel pain, according to an Aug. 4 NJ.com story.* The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which maintains a da Vinci lawsuits and potential side effects website at http://www.roboticsurgerylawsuitcenter.com/, comments on the suit.
Sheena Wilson, 45, alleges in her lawsuit that da Vinci maker Intuitive Surgical failed to warn about the possibility of electrical current traveling from the robot system’s arms to patients on the operating table, according to court documents (2:13-cv-04327-CCC-JAD, WILSON v. INTUITIVE SURGICAL, INC., U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey). There are currently about 30 da Vinci lawsuits nationwide, some of which allege burns to internal organs, in addition to bowel problems, the article said.
“If Intuitive Surgical was aware of the faults of the da Vinci and did not warn of the risks, then it should be held accountable in court,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP, a da Vinci surgical robot law firm.
da Vinci maker Intuitive Surgical recently initiated a class-2 recall of about 30 da Vinci units because of potential safety compliance issues, according to a July 12 Bloomberg story.**
