Medical Device Lawsuits
Medical devices like artificial hips, surgical robots and medical scopes are intended to improve the lives of patients. But occasionally, these products end up doing serious physical harm to those they were intended to help. Medical device injuries can occur because a product wasn’t adequately tested prior to coming to market. In other instances, manufacturing problems can produce a device that does not perform as intended. In either case, manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure that their products are safe and effective.
When medical devices fail, filing a medical device lawsuit can allow injured victims to obtain the compensation they need to cover their medical treatment, rehabilitation and other damages related to their complications. But no matter how strong your case, you’re unlikely to succeed in any fight against a big medical device company without strong legal representation on your side.
Defective Medical Devices Causing Injuries
Advances in medical technology have offered many benefits to patients with serious illnesses or disease. Even so, medical devices can sometimes have hidden flaws and/or defects that can cause malfunctions and lead to patient injury. Often these flaws and/or defects may not provide warning signs to the surgeon or give the patient an indication that something is wrong until after the surgery has been completed. Unfortunately, defective medical devices can cause harm or even death to individuals who have been injured during surgery.
When a medical device malfunction happens and injury (or worse) occurs, the injured person or their family members can take legal action against the medical device manufacturer.
