Morcellator Lawsuit Information
Power Morcellators are medical devices that doctors use during minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeries for hysterectomies (removal of the uterus) and myomectomies (removal of fibroids). The Morcellator fragments tissue into smaller pieces through small incisions. Unfortunately, if a patient has undetected cancerous growths or tumors the procedure can spread those cancerous cells. As a result, morcellators have been linked to various types of cancers.

In 2014 the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a statement discouraging doctors not to use power Morcellators due to the extreme safety risks. And required all power Morcellator manufacturers to attach ‘Black Box’ warning labels on the devices stating that the risks posed by morcellators outweigh any potential benefits that, in almost all circumstances, the use of these devices should not be used.

Sadly, these warnings may have come too late for many women. If you or a loved one were diagnosed with cancer following a procedure that utilize a power Morcellator device you may be able to seek justice by filing a lawsuit against the companies that manufactured these surgical devices.

Morcellators and Manufacturers
There are multiple companies who have manufactured the power morcellator devices used for gynecological surgeries.  Device manufacturers have a responsibility to develop, produce, label and market a product without harm to the public.  Complaints state that these companies presented these products as safe and effective, when they were not.  And, that the manufacturers of these surgical tools were aware of the dangers but failed to warn the general public and continued to profit from their sales.  Manufacturers of these devices should have stopped selling them because of the potential harm they can cause, but failed to recall their products from the market.
