Injured victim Matthew Beale, a 38-year-old father whose cartilage in his right shoulder disappeared after a pain pump was used following shoulder surgery, and his wife were awarded $5.5 million in an Oregon court last week – the first of hundreds of similar pain pump cases set to go to trail. Oregon Live details the pain Mr. Beale experienced after I-Flow, a pain pump manufacturer, encouraged doctors to employ their products in joint surgeries even after the FDA repeatedly refused to approve those types of uses.

Seeger Weiss LLP is part of the litigation group working in coordination to bring these cases to court across the country. The Oregon case is expected to set the trend for upcoming cases, and gives many pain-pump victims hope for relief and justice.

Following this giant victory for pain pump victims across the country, the New York Times follows up with a piece on pain pump studies.
