Los Angeles MiniMed Insulin Pump Claims Lawyer

Are you a diabetic who uses a Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pump to deliver insulin? If so, be aware that in 2020 the United States Food and Drug Administration issued a Class I recall for certain Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pumps.

You may be eligible to receive financial compensation if you developed health problems as a result of using one of these devices. Review your case with a Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pump claims attorney at the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg for more information about your options.

Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pumps Are Being Recalled

The FDA has issued a recall for the following Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pumps:

MiniMed 600 Series Insulin Pumps
Model 630G – pumps manufactured between September 2016 to February 2020
Model 670G – pumps manufactured between May 2015 to December 2020

A defective retainer ring has prompted the recall. This defect can sometimes prevent an insulin cartridge from locking into place correctly. When this happens, the dose of insulin a person receives when using these products may be incorrect.

Victims can potentially experience hypoglycemia if usage of a Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pump causes them to receive too much insulin. Symptoms of hypoglycemia include:

  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness and/or balance problems
  • Weakness
  • Disorientation
  • Confusion
  • Seizures
  • Coma

If someone receives too little insulin due to using a defective Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pump, they might experience hyperglycemia, symptoms of which include:

  • Fatigue
  • Vision changes
  • Excessively frequent urination
  • Numbness or tingling, particularly in the extremities
  • Injuries which heal more slowly than usual
  • Infections
  • Thirst
  • Persistent hunger

See a doctor right away if you have any reason to suspect that you’ve developed health complications as a result of using a defective Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pump. The sooner you receive the treatment, the better your chances of preventing a minor medical issue from growing into something more serious.

How a Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pump Claims Attorney Can Help

If you’ve experienced health issues after using one of these defective products, you can file a claim against the manufacturer to pursue compensation for such losses as:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages, if the nature of your condition interfered with your ability to work
  • Pain and suffering and other such non-economic damages which may not have objective dollar values

Additionally, if a loved one died as a result of health complications associated with a defective Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pump, you can seek compensation for your losses by filing a wrongful death claim or lawsuit. Losses for which you may be compensated include (but aren’t necessarily limited to):

  • The cost of medical care for your loved one before they passed away
  • Reasonable expenses for a loved one’s funeral and burial
  • Loss of the income and benefits a loved one might have earned during their lifetime if they hadn’t passed
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of the services a loved one provided for your family

Showing that you’re eligible to recover compensation may be easier with the assistance of a lawyer. A Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pump Claims attorney can help you by:

  • Gathering evidence showing you developed a medical condition associated with use of a defective Medtronic MiniMed Insulin Pump
  • Calculating the approximate amount of compensation you may deserve based on the extent of your compensable losses
  • Negotiating for a fair settlement if the insurance company refuses to offer one initially
