Penumbra Wrongful Death and Injury Claims
The Penumbra JET 7 Xtra Flex catheter is a surgical device used to remove clots in stroke patients. The Penumbra device can break, however, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.
As of December 2020, at least 14 deaths had been reported as linked to defective Penumbra catheters and more than 200 medical device reports (MDRs) had been filed with the FDA. These reports include instances of ballooning, expansion, rupture, breakage, complete separation, and exposure of internal support coils.
According to the manufacturer, the Penumbra device is “not able to withstand the same burst pressures to failure as the manufacturer’s other large bore aspiration catheters.”
Injuries Potentially Caused by Penumbra JET 7 Xtra Flex Catheters:
- Blood vessel damage

Why Riddle & Brantley?
At Riddle & Brantley, our wrongful death lawyers have been fighting for justice for lost loved ones for more than 35 years. Since 1985, we’ve secured millions of dollars in compensation (see disclaimer below) for surviving family members in wrongful death cases.
We are proud of our record of settlements and verdicts, including:
- $9,450,000 — Attorneys at Riddle & Brantley represented surviving relatives of a family of four who were killed in a tragic highway accident involving multiple tractor-trailers. We investigated the accident, proved liability, and secured $9.45 million in total compensation through separate settlements.
- $2,000,000 — Our attorneys represented the surviving sons of an elderly woman who was killed when her vehicle was struck by a heavy truck. We brought in an outside expert to prove liability in the case, and ultimately negotiated a $2MM settlement on behalf of our clients.
- $3,000,000 — We fought for justice after mishandling of medical equipment resulted in the infection and death of a resident in a long-term care facility. Liability was denied, but we argued the case in Superior Court, ultimately securing a judgment in the amount of $3 million.
