Are you or a loved one suffering through the pain of a Bair Hugger infection brought about by surgery or another medical procedure? A Bair Hugger infection lawyer can help you hold the negligent party (or parties) accountable for damages. Bair hugger forced air warming blankets are designed to help patients maintain body warmth during surgery.
Bair Huggers were invented because surgery patients are prone to hypothermia, a dangerous condition where the body is losing more heat than it can replace. Unfortunately, thousands of hospital and surgery patients all over the country have developed infections or other complications that may be connected to Bair Hugger use. If you have suffered these complications, a Bair Hugger attorney from the Law Offices of Anidjar and Levine can demand damages on your behalf.

Bair Hugger Blankets are Known to Have Problems
Although the Bair Hugger blanket performs an important role during surgical procedures, it’s not a perfect device. In fact, 3M, the company that manufactures the Bair Hugger has been sued by patients who suffered complications they believe were related to their use of Bair Hugger. Potential complications from Bair Hugger use include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Skin rashes
Out of these potential complications, infections can pose the most danger to patients. Specifically, many patients who underwent joint replacement surgery suffered methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). MRSA is a very dangerous antibiotic-resistant infection that can cause severe health problems in patients.
Potential Complications of MRSA Infections
MRSA can cause a host of health complications in patients, which include sepsis, also known as toxic shock. Sepsis can lead to organ failure and even death in severe cases. Another potential complication of MRSA is MRSA-related Pneumonia, which is a drug-resistant, fast-moving malady with a very high mortality rate. Lastly, MRSA can cause painful skin infections that require surgery to correct.
What Are The Potential Damages In A Bair Hugger Infection Case?
Any patient who is stricken with a Bair Hugger Infection that leads to MRSA or other related complications will incur significant medical bills for the necessary treatment. These medical bills would certainly constitute recoverable damages if the infection was caused by a faulty Bair Hugger or a Bair Hugger that wasn’t properly used by the attending medical staff.
In addition to the medical bills, many Bair Hugger infection victims miss significant time at work, which creates a loss of income. Lost wages due to a Bair Hugger infection is another example of the damages a Bair Hugger Infection lawyer from our firm can demand on your behalf.
How Much Is My Bair Hugger Infection Case Worth?
The value of a Bair Hugger infection case depends on a lot of different variables. In most cases, the biggest variables are your total medical bills and lost wages. However, the total of those damages is different in almost every case. That’s because your earning potential and medical bills are unique to your individual situation.
