Pain Pump Litigation
Shoulder pain pump devices provide post-surgery relief from pain and were designed to decrease patients’ reliance on narcotic medication. Shoulder pain pumps deliver anesthetics directly into the shoulder joint after surgery, relieving patients of the need to follow oral medication schedules and providing uninterrupted pain relief.
A Dangerous Connect Between Shoulder Joint Pain Pumps And Injuries
Unfortunately, recent scientific studies indicate a direct connection between shoulder joint pain pump use and postarthroscopic glenohumeral chondrolysis (PAGCL), which is a medical condition in which shoulder joint cartilage breaks down following surgery. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, clicking, popping, decreased range of motion and loss of joint strength. There are no proven treatments for PAGCL, and symptoms can be permanent.
Are you experiencing pain, loss of strength or range of movement following shoulder surgery and the use of a pain pump? Pryor Priest & Harber can help.
If you, a friend or a family member is experiencing symptoms of PAGCL, it is important that you ask for guidance from an experienced lawyer at the Knoxville law firm of Pryor Priest & Harber.

Holding Manufacturers Liable For Defects
When pharmaceutical and medical device companies fail to detect dangerous aspects of their products, they can be liable for injuries. The only known treatment for PAGCL is additional medical care and surgery, and treatment is unreliable. If you are suffering from PAGCL, you could have a right to financial compensation for your injuries. In fact, some of our PAGCL clients’ doctors have taken the unusual step of advising PAGCL sufferers to consult an attorney.
