Has A Defective Medical Device Harmed You Or A loved One?

When a bad result occurs after a procedure in the hospital, it is not always the result of medical malpractice. Although medical devices have saved lives and revolutionized health care, some medical devices are defective and can cause serious injury. All too often people develop additional health problems when the medical device used for their procedure was improperly designed, tested, or manufactured.

There are hundreds of devices that have been deemed “defective” throughout the years. These devices range from artificial hips and heart stents to surgical devices and power morcellators.

When a defective medical device injures you, the manufacturers of that product should be held responsible for your economic and non-economic losses. By filing a defective medical device claim, you may be able to recover compensation for many different types of losses, including medical costs, lost wages, future medical costs, pain and suffering and any other losses associated with your defective medical device.

Why File A Claim?

Medical devices and procedures are huge money makers for hospitals and device companies.

If you become injured by a defective medical device, you and your family deserve to be compensated for medical expenses and emotional anguish. However, filing a claim against a neglectful manufacturing company is imperative for holding that company responsible for its actions.
