By Whitney Brakken | Jan 10, 2014

A man is suing a manufacturer over claims a pain pump injured him.

Michael Sherman filed a lawsuit Aug. 27 in the Cook County Circuit Court against I-Flow Corp., Timothy Williams, Nicole Cooper, formerly known as Nicole Quattrocki, and Dan Schuman, citing strict liability and negligence.

According to the complaint, on Nov. 10, 2003, Sherman was implanted with an On-Q pain pump, which was designed and manufactured by I-Flow Corp. and sold, distributed or marketed by Williams, Cooper and Schuman.

The complaint states the implantation of an On-Q pain pump into the intraarticular shoulder joint with the delivery of certain drugs presented a substantial risk for the development of Glenohumeral Chondrolysis and the defendants knew or should have known of this risk.

As a result of the defendants' actions, Sherman claims he sustained injuries.

Sherman is seeking damages in excess of $50,000. He is being represented in the case by attorney Daniel T. Madigan of Motherway and Napleton LLP.
