Cryotherapy is a trendy new therapy promoted by celebrities, but what exactly is it? Cryotherapy involves chilling the body to temperatures below -150 degrees Fahrenheit for several minutes. While cryotherapy is advertised as promoting a variety of health benefits, such as better sleep and pain relief, it is not FDA approved and can often lead to serious injury. Cryotherapy has been known to rapidly chill the body by using unsafe methods such as liquid nitrogen. This can lead to injuries such as nitrogen inhalation, frostbite, as well as damage to eyes and severe burns. In some situations, victims may even be knocked unconscious from inhaling nitrogen fumes, or suffer amputation or debilitating burn injury.
If you were burned by an unsafe cryotherapy device or procedure, you may have a claim for personal injury entitling you to money for your pain and suffering, burns, scars, medical treatment and more. Our product liability lawyers

What is a cryotherapy lawsuit?
A cryotherapy lawsuit can be filed by a victim severely injured by cryotherapy. When you go in for cryotherapy, you have an expectation that the therapy will be helpful to ailments you may have. However, you should not expect to suffer from severe frostbite, second and third degree burns, severe nerve damage, amputation, or other serious complications. If you used the product as intended and suffered injury, you may qualify for a product liability lawsuit. Allegations including manufacturing defects, design defects, and failure to warn are possible claims you could have.
