Bard PowerPort Lawsuit

Defective Medical Device Lawsuits

The Bard PowerPort is part of a family of implanted port devices that are placed just below the skin and acts as a catheter port for the delivery of medicines directly to a patient’s bloodstream.

However, a number of affected individuals are now pursuing legal action against Bard after experiencing serious and potentially life-threatening injuries including, but not limited to:

  • Infections (sepsis or septic shock)
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Hemorrhaging or Bleeding Injuries
  • Cardiac/pericardial tamponade
  • Cardiac arrhythmia
  • Severe and persistent pain
  • Perforations of tissues, vessels and organs
  • Patient death

The product liability lawsuits allege that design defects in the Bard PowerPort may have caused catheter tubes to crack, fracture and/or migrate.
