Canada: Canada-wide Class Action Litigation Regarding St. Jude Defibrillator Victims
Last Updated: May 5 2017

Howie, Sacks & Henry and Waddell Phillips have launched a Canada-wide class action litigation against the makers of St. Jude Defibrillator products known as the Fortify, Fortify Assura, Fortify Assura MP, Unify, Unify Assura and Unify Quadra.


In October 2016, medical manufacturer St. Jude notified patients and doctors about a defect in some of their Defibrillator models caused by lithium cluster formation in the device's battery. The defect causes a short circuit, high current drain, rapid depletion and premature failure – sometimes with very little warning.

Individuals were implanted with a defibrillator branded as Fortify, Fortify Assura, Fortify Assura MP, Unify, Unify Assura, or Unify Quadra that was manufactured between January 2010 and May 23, 2015.
