SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MT Services LLC, a Lawsuit Settlement News Reporting Company which operates lawsuitsettlementnews.com, announced today a prime focus on assisting plaintiffs who have dealt with complications due to Intuitive Surgical System's da Vinci robot. It is estimated that the da Vinci machine is used in nearly 400K surgeries each year. Many patients who have undergone these types of surgeries have dealt with complications such as: lacerations to internal organs (including intestines), burns to internal organs and blood vessels, excessive bleeding, nerve damage, severe bowel injuries, punctured blood vessels or ureters, various vaginal injuries, and even death. There have been many lawsuits filed against Intuitive Surgical Inc., though at this time there is no specific number. The lawsuits have undoubtedly stemmed from reported injuries such as those listed above as well as others not listed. Intuitive Surgical Inc. reported in SEC 10-K filings that they have reserved $67MM to defend and settle some product liability claims in regards to the robotic surgery. Global settlement discussions haven't been reported yet, but according to industry experts, it is anticipated that some cases have actually settled privately. Many industry experts predict that cases with serious injuries and need for additional corrective surgeries could reach as high as $300-$500K per case.
Chris Janish, CEO of MTS, commented on the da Vinci lawsuits, "The da Vinci mass tort litigation is one that we have been actively following. Intuitive has already committed $67MM to defend the suit and it is expected that this number could increase with their year-end filing, with a larger 'write down.' We have also obtained information from sources close to the litigation that the company has already begun to settle some cases privately at lower settlement values to avoid litigation. Lastly, the company has also agreed to a 'tolling agreement' which will make the total number of filed claims tough to figure since the tolling agreement allows the plaintiff not to have to file suit and not be penalized for any statute of limitation issues. For all of these reasons, we believe this litigation is one that will continue to grow in size in 2015, and patients who were possibly harmed by a da Vinci robot surgery should seek immediate legal consultation."
