The defective tubing in Medtronic’s MiniMed Paradigm Insulin Pumps may have caused serious injury and/or death in diabetic patients who used the defective products. MiniMed Paradigm Insulin Pump lawsuits have been filed as a result of both the 2004 and 2009 recalls, and with increasing awareness of the health problems associated with the defective insulin pumps, more lawsuits are expected to be filed against Medtronic.
2004 MiniMed Paradigm Insulin Pump Lawsuit
The 2004 MiniMed Paradigm Insulin Pump lawsuit was filed by the widow of a diabetic patient who lost consciousness while driving and was killed in an accident. The lawsuit claimed that the MiniMed Paradigm Insulin Pump he was using was defective and failed to deliver sufficient insulin. The suit included legal claims of defective design and manufacturing, negligence, failure to warn, strict liability, and breach of warranty.
2009 MiniMed Paradigm Insulin Pump Lawsuit
Meanwhile, in more recent litigation news, lawsuits are now being filed in response to the latest MiniMed Paradigm recall. In November of 2009, six plaintiffs filed a lawsuit against Medtronic in federal court for the Southern District of Texas claiming that they suffered injuries after use of the defective insulin tubing. As before, this lawsuit includes claims for damages under strict liability, negligence, failure to warn, defective design and manufacturing, and breach of warranty.
If you are considering filing suit against Medtronic, an experienced MiniMed Paradigm Insulin Pump lawyer or defective products attorney will be able to evaluate your claim and determine the best course of action. It is important to keep in mind that in order to protect your rights, you should seek legal help immediately if you or a loved one has suffered harm as a result of the use of one of the defective and recalled MiniMed Paradigm insulin pumps. While there is no fee or obligation, delaying may cause you to lose your right to seek compensation for injuries caused by MiniMed Paradigm insulin pumps, due to state-imposed time limits for filing a lawsuit.
