Defective Medical Devices



Medical lawsuits aren't just about malpractice, misdiagnosis or a poor standard of care. Too often, the medical devices themselves fail or have side effects that are more harmful than the injury or sickness they sought to cure. When this happens, it's time to call a product liability attorney with experience in defective medical devices. He or she can skillfully investigate the nature of your procedure, history of the device in question and the extent of your pain and suffering to determine a possible monetary award.

Recalled Medical Devices

There are many, many medical products that have been recalled for defects. Recalled devices include:

  • Guidant and Medtronic heart defibrillators
  • Stryker® and Zimmer hip implants
  • Some ACCU-chek® insulin pumps
  • IVC filters recalled by several companies
  • Shoulder pain pump implants
  • J&J Heart stents

If a defective stent, pacemaker, infusion pump or other medical device has caused pain, injury or death in your family, you should speak to an product liability attorney about your case. When preparing to meet with your lawyer, research the model number and manufacturer of the product using the Internet. Entering into a lawsuit in such a manner can help ensure your chosen law firm is on track and capable of facing the hospitals and powerful medical manufacturing companies involved.
