Our Virginia Product Liability Attorneys Can Help!

Individuals who have undergone invasive surgeries where a Stockert 3T heater-cooler device was used may be at risk of developing a dangerous infection.

Since 1979, we have fought for the rights of the injured and we are not afraid to face big insurance companies or large corporations in order to defend the rights of our clients.

Know the Risks

Between 2010 and 2016, the FDA received 79 reports of serious infections caused by contaminated heater-cooler devices and 12 associated deaths.

  • Nausea
