Infuse Bone Graft Settlement Loans
Infuse Bone Grafts are synthetic grafts are used in spinal fusion procedures. They were approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002. As time went on, they were used in other procedures such as treating tibia fractures and in oral-maxillofacial surgery. They also can be used with certain cages in lower back procedures.
Over 1,000,000 people have had the grafts done. Sales of these products have been around $750 million for a single year!
Unfortunately, problems began cropping up. They have shown a problem of becoming infected and have led to issues of sterility and urinary problems. This can be a major setback both financially and in everyday life. If you have a Infuse bone graft lawsuit, you don’t have to feel defeated. Uplift Legal Funding is a company that can help you obtain money on your lawsuit today. Call us at (800) 385-3660 for more information.
The History of Infuse Lawsuits
Studies way back in 2011 started to note the dangers of Infuse bone grafts. When any product gets approved by the FDA, it has to prove it’s safe. Unfortunately, the dangers were hidden. A study in 2011 showed the risk of complications was 10 to 50 times greater than originally reported. Lawsuits soon followed.
In 2014, Medtronic (the company who makes Infuse) settled nearly 1,000 Infuse cases for $22 million. This obviously wasn’t everybody. There are still thousands of lawsuits against Medtronic.
In August of 2016 there was another Infuse settlement against Medtronic. The award was for them to pay $8.45 million for two victims of the bone grafts.
More recently the company announced it had reached an agreement with around 6,000 claimants. While they have $300,000,000 put aside for the award, it is not guaranteed that that will be the settlement amount. There is still some uncertainty. How do you battle uncertainty? With help up front.

Infuse Bone Graft Side Effects
Put simply, there are many Infuse bone graft side effects. While bone grafts are helpful in theory, there are many side effects. These include:
- male sterility
- increased risk of cancer
- difficulty breathing
- paralysis or nerve damage
- degeneration of the bone tissue
- urinary problems
Sometimes these issues can result in additional surgery. They can even lead to death. If you have a lawsuit filed because you or a loved one has experienced these issues, Uplift Legal Funding can get you money up front!
How Much is My Infuse Lawsuit Worth?
As stated before, there is still some uncertainty. There have been huge settlements (up to millions of dollars), but most not all cases settle for six figures. There are some factors that will determine how much each person gets.
- why they had the Infuse product implanted
- side effect severity
- side effect treatment
- which settlement group that person is in
While the dollar amounts may not be known, Uplift’s underwriters can review the details of your case and help get you money ASAP. Fill out our online application today to get started.
When Will I Get My Infuse Settlement Money?
It is in the best interest for large insurance companies to make everyday plaintiffs wait it out. Not only that, in these larger settlements, it can take a long time. Even when the settlement is approved, there could be appeals. Even when appeals are settled, not every law firm gets to settle their clients’ cases at once – they take turns. There are other multi-district litigation cases that settled in 2014 that have still not been paid out.
What does that mean for you? Well, it means finding some other way to pay your bills. Especially if you can’t work because of your failed Infuse procedure.
