It is highly recommended to seek out legal counsel if you are considering filing a claim against a medical company or manufacturer. Claims involving dangerous or defective medical devices can be incredibly difficult to successfully file, due to the exhaustive amount of evidence and casework that is needed to convince the courts of negligence. A Bard PowerPort injury attorney with previous experience in such cases has the ability and knowhow to formulate a comprehensive case strategy on your behalf.
Additionally, going up against a large corporation such as a medical device manufacturer means fighting against a skilled team of corporate attorneys. Retaining a Bard PowerPort injury lawyer on your side, who is not intimidated by the opposition, can give you a fair chance at recouping the compensation you deserve.
A PowerPort is a more robust version of a port-a-cath or implanted port device. It is a special implanted port that can withstand higher injection pressure than a normal port, and is ideal for fluids that require rapid injection, such as contrast dye during radiological exams.
In order to use a PowerPort, medical professionals must use a special needle called a PowerLoc needle. As a result, many patients who have these implanted may carry identification that informs medical professionals on how to properly access the port.
Although PowerPorts are slightly different from normal port-a-cath devices, their common issues are largely the same, and often due to catheter failure. Common failure issues include:

At The Dickerson Oxton Law Firm, we believe that manufacturer Bard Access was negligent in its ability to keep patients safe and healthy. They had the ability to reinforce their catheters with relatively inexpensive, harmless material – and yet they failed to do so. As a result, many of those with PowerPorts and other implanted port devices have a high likelihood of suffering serious injuries.
We can help hold Bard Access accountable for their careless actions by pursuing them to the fullest extent of the law. We will assist you in gathering evidence, investigating your claims, and potentially finding other clients who share similar experiences. By doing so, we can build a strong case against Bard and pursue compensation that is full and fair.
