Cold therapy machines are linked to frostbite, nerve damage, skin damage, skin necrosis, or other complications.
Cold Therapy Class Action Lawsuits
Cold therapy machines are associated with some extremely severe and debilitating injuries. One plaintiff, Whitney Engler, suffered extreme frostbite on her legs and was awarded more than $12.5 million for her cold therapy lawsuit. Her lawyers successfully convinced the jury to award more than $7.5 million in punitive damages, which are additional damages to punish the extreme negligence of the manufacturer.
