The Bard PowerPort (also known as the “BardPort”) is a port catheter device implanted just under the skin to allow for easy attachment to a catheter for the intravenous delivery of fluids or medication.

The Bard PowerPort has inherent design and manufacturing flaws that make the device prone to fracturing and migrating out of position. This can cause severe injuries, including internal vascular damage.

Individuals who suffered injuries due to a defective Bard PowerPort device are now bringing product liability lawsuits against the manufacturer of the PowerPort implants. Our firm is currently accepting new cases from anyone who had a Bard PowerPort port cath device implanted and was injured due to a fracture, migration, or other implant failures.

This page explores Suboxone, its associated dental complications, and the subsequent Suboxone tooth decay lawsuits in 2023-2024. Our lawyers are seeking settlement compensation for victims who have suffered tooth decay, tooth loss, and tooth erosion from Suboxone.

What is the Suboxone lawsuit about? The lawsuit is about what Suboxone does to your teeth.

They did not convey that risk to prescribing doctors or patients because they chose profits over people.

Our lawyers are investigating Ozempic lawsuits for patients with gastroparesis or gastrointestinal conditions, including bowel obstruction or cyclic vomiting syndrome.

Ozempic is the popular brand name for semaglutide, a prescription drug approved for the treatment of type-2 diabetes. As we all know, Ozempic is also commonly used as a weight management drug. Recent scientific studies have shown that taking Ozempic, particularly at higher doses, can cause gastroparesis.

Until recently, the warning label for Ozempic did not correctly notify patients or doctors about the risk of these injuries. Anyone who suffered gastroparesis after taking Ozempic may be able to get financial compensation for their injuries by filing a product liability lawsuit.

Sex Abuse Lawsuit News and Updates

Before we get into the details of sex abuse settlements, let’s start with some of the latest news that impacts victims:

In recent years, rideshare companies Uber and Lyft have replaced taxicabs in most of the country, and millions of people have used these companies for rides.

Uber has been facing a growing number of allegations and civil lawsuits from rideshare passengers alleging that Uber drivers sexually assaulted them. The lawsuits against Uber allege that the company should be held liable for these sexual assaults because it negligently failed to screen its drivers properly.

Recently, a growing number of sexual assault lawsuits with similar allegations have been filed against Uber across the country. These cases were recently consolidated into an Uber new class action lawsuit (In re: Uber Technologies Inc., Passenger Sexual Assault Litigation – MDL No. 3084).  This new MDL has over 200 plaintiffs and is expected to grow to thousands.
