3M Bair Hugger Lawsuits

We are also actively investigating lawsuits over 3M Bair Hugger products after there have been complaints of serious infections after knee and hip surgeries. The have been complaints that patients have suffered infection including MRSA or sepsis due to 3M Bair Hugger which is a forced air system. There are complaints that say infection was caused by contaminated air from operating room floors. In some cases the infection is not immediate, the infection can actually start showing symptoms years after the surgery has been performed. We are looking for patients who have suffered an infection due to a 3M Bair Hugger product in which the surgery has been performed in the past 6 years.

3M Bair Hugger is a warming blanket that is typically used in hip and knee surgeries. The 3M Bair Hugger blanket keeps the patient's normal body tempature stable. According to 3M reports, the 3M Bair Hugger blanket is used in more than 80% of hospitals. Concerns about 3M Bair Hugger and infections began back in 2010. The inventor, Dr. Scott Augustine warned in an interview that the 3M warming blanket could run the increased risk of infection. Years later, a study was published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery which stated that forced air that runs through these blankets is 2,000 times more contaminated than alternative methods. A 3M Bair Hugger lawsuit was filed in Kansas that claimed the blanket caused his infection which then lead to his leg's amputation. Another 3M Bair Hugger lawsuit was filed in Texas which claims the 3M Bair Hugger blanket caused another infection. The 3M Bair Hugger lawsuits are suing for lost wages, pain and suffering, payment of medical bills. These infections are very serious and could require multiple surgeries and rack up huge medical bills. Even as more 3M Bair Hugger lawsuits are filed, there will likely not be the creation of a 3M Bair Hugger class action lawsuit. More likely if more and more 3M Bair Hugger lawsuits are filed, is the creation of a 3M Bair Hugger MDL.
