What should I do if I was injured as a result of the use of a power morcellator?

Like many women, you may have undergone a procedure to remove noncancerous growths from your uterus. During the process, your physician may have used a power morcellator. This device is also used in performing hysterectomies, and certain kidney and spleen surgeries. Regardless of the type of procedure that you underwent, you may have been injured as a result of the use of a power morcellator. This device has been shown to spread or aid in the development of rare and aggressive cancers. With treatment costs high, it is crucial to take the proper steps after you discover your cancer in order to protect your legal rights.

Seven Steps to Take If You Were Injured by a Power Morcellator

If you were injured as a result of the use of a power morcellator during a medical procedure, consider taking the following steps:

  1. Contact an experienced attorney. If you were injured as a result of the use of power morcellator during a medical procedure, you may have a claim. However, your best chance for success in pursuing this claim is to have the guidance of a knowledgeable attorney in your corner.
  2. Obtain medical records relating to the procedure in which the power morcellator was used.
  3. If you developed cancer as a result of the use of a power morcellator, gather all of your medical records relating to this condition. It is important to show that the use of the power morcellator is directly responsible for the development or spread of your cancer.
  4. Keep records of all of your expenditure relating to the treatment and rehabilitation of your condition following the use of the power morcellator.
  5. Obtain statements from the doctors and nurses who performed the procedure if possible.
  6. If you are unable to return to work as a result of your condition, calculate your lost wages.
  7. Avoid speaking with insurance companies, hospitals, or other parties about your potential legal claim without first consulting your attorney. Actions or statements made without the guidance of your attorney can ultimately harm your claim.
