Bone Cement

As the population ages, bone fractures are becoming more and more common. Bone cement is an optional tool that orthopedic surgeons often use to repair fractured joints, especially broken hips.

Unfortunately, in rare cases, patients can suffer a life-threatening reaction called bone cement implantation syndrome (BCIS). No one knows exactly what causes BCIS, but it usually occurs within minutes of exposure to bone cement. The bones spontaneously release fat and marrow into the bloodstream, which can clog arteries in the heart, lungs, or other areas of the body. This can lead to a deadly pulmonary embolism or cardiac arrest.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our Defective Medical Device Litigation Group is not filing a bone cement class action at this time. Instead, we are providing free case evaluations for people who need information about filing individual lawsuits.

About Class Actions

Class actions are beneficial when a large number of people have the same legal claim against the same defendant — such as purchasing a defective product or wage discrimination. Lawyers choose one plaintiff to be the “class representative” and use that person’s case to argue that everyone deserves compensation. If compensation is awarded, lawyers take a percentage and split the rest among the members.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Bone Cement Class Action

Class action lawsuits can have disadvantages for people with severe injuries. Their case may never be selected to go to trial, and members may have to accept higher attorneys’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement.

Instead of a class action, our trial attorneys file individual lawsuits. We believe personal legal representation is the best way we can help each client pursue justice. We understand that bone cement injuries are extremely serious. If you decide to file a lawsuit, we can help you seek compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, family member’s wrongful death, and more.
