3M manufactures the Bair Hugger, a specialized surgical warming blanket that works like a forced-air warmer. It blows hot air onto a patient to keep them warm while they are under anesthesia during surgery.

Recently, lawsuits have been filed by people who developed infections after hip or knee replacement surgery.

What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm in Texas. However, our attorneys are not currently pursuing justice for our clients through a Bair Hugger class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits.
About Class Actions
The problem with class actions is that they can have major disadvantages for individuals with very serious injuries. You have probably heard about class action lawsuits that ended in major settlements, only to have lawyers take a massive cut of the payout.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Our attorneys specialize in helping victims of defective medical devices file lawsuits against manufacturers. We believe there is no excuse for failing to warn about life-threatening side effects or failing to fix a defective product when safer designs are discovered. If you or a loved one underwent surgery (hip or knee replacement, heart valve surgery, etc.) and developed an infection, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit. Our lawyers can help you seek compensation for your injury, medical expenses, and more.
