Defective Medical Device Personal Injury Lawyer

Technology has impacted the way we live our lives. Medical device companies have invested in technology to create devices that have had a huge impact on the way the medical world operates. The use of medical devices, in many cases, has enhanced health care and today we oftentimes depend on them to improve the quality of our life. The amount of medical devices that are used in operating rooms today is at an all-time high due to this evolving technology in the medical world. These medical devices have made the once untreatable… treatable in many cases.

But unfortunately, technology isn’t always perfect. When these devices you depend on to sustain life fail and are defective they can have a disastrous result causing permanent injury or even death.

If you are injured due to a defective medical device, you may have a claim against the manufacturer or seller of these medical products and should consult an experienced product liability lawyer immediately.

COMMON DEFECTIVE MEDICAL DEVICES

Medical devices are an array of products used in the health care world by medical professionals that can either be used to treat conditions internally such as in the case of a pacemaker or externally by use of a wheelchair. These devices are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which deems whether the product is safe and authorizes their use by medical professionals and patients. If a medical device that is FDA-approved becomes defective, it is the FDA’s responsibility to issue a medical device recall to remove its use from the marketplace. There is a list of recalled devices on the FDA’s website. Unfortunately, a product being added to this medical device recall list usually only occurs after hundreds, if not thousands, of consumers have been injured from the medical device.

Many devices have been classified as “defective”. The most common medical devices that have known defects and when fail can cause serious injury are…

 

  • Pacemakers
  • Dialysis machines
  • Defibrillators
  • Hip and knee implants
  • Breast implants
  • Transvaginal mesh
  • Insulin pumps
  • Long term birth control implants (i.e. Essure)
  • Power wheelchairs
  • Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Filters

Design or Manufacturing Of The Device:
