What Do Damages Awards From NuVasive Precice System Lawsuits Cover?
While each case may be different, damages awards from a NuVasive Precice System lawsuit can cover a wide range of costs and expenses, including:
- Medical and hospital bills
- Costs of additional corrective surgery (known as “revision surgery”)
- Expenses not covered by traditional insurance
- Lost wages and loss of the ability to generate income
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship of a loved one
Damages will vary depending on various factors, including the severity of the injuries involved, the extent of the lifestyle changes, and even the skill or experience of the attorney handling the case.

What Injuries Were Named in This Lawsuit?
NuVasive Precice System lawsuits are focusing on biocompatibility injuries — complications caused by the body reacting poorly to the implant device. These include bone problems, tissue reactions, and other injuries.
In particular, patients with Precice Stryde implants had pain and abnormal growth at the nail junction. Retrieved nails were found with corrosion and discoloration, and biological material was found in the nail.
NuVasive is currently investigating health problems linked to biocompatibility issues with its Precice devices, including:
- Chronic toxicity
- Developmental toxicity
- Reproductive toxicity
These types of injuries are often caused by improper or incomplete testing for biocompatibility. In such cases, the manufacturer responsible for such defective products must be held liable for their misconduct.
Seek immediate medical attention and contact a lawyer if you believe you may have been injured by NuVasive Precice products.
