WHAT IS A POWER MORCELLATOR? A Power Morcellator is a medical device used to remove noncancerous growths, usually fibroids, from the uterus. They are used to cut and shred the tissue; however, they put women at a significant risk factor for leiomyosarcoma and endometrial stromal sarcoma.
WHAT DOES THE FDA SAY? The FDA has issued warnings, stating that these devices are not safe for the majority of women undergoing fibroid removals or hysterectomies because of fibroids.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO START MY LAWSUIT? Every state has its own statute of limitations, which governs when a claim must be started. If your claim is not started before the statute of limitations ends, you may be forever prevented from bringing your claim against the responsible party or parties. There is no way for us to know which statute of limitations applies to your case without first reviewing the individual facts of your case. You should not wait, as any delay may prevent you from bringing your lawsuit.
