UPDATE: 9/12/2013 -TorkLaw now representing over 60 victims Nationwide
Now representing more than 60 clients in over 16 States across the country, TorkLaw has started a Client Information Center related to the St. Jude Riata Recall providing important information for those who believe they may be impacted by the device.
Specifically, Series 1500 and 7000 Riata Leads have been identified as having premature insulation failure resulting from inside-out or outside-in abrasion. In most lead failure situations, the wires inside the leads will protrude through the insulation and is often seen in an x-ray or flouroscopy.
Often times patients with the defective leads receive errant shocks, infections, migration or complete defibrillator failure. If you or a love one have been implanted with a St. Jude Medical device, and are experiencing any problems, or believe that you might have the recalled device, it is important that you immediately speak with your doctor or call us to help identify your device.
