Recalled Defective Devices
Consumer medical devices take many forms, from artificial joints to heart monitors and pacemakers. The recipients of these products heavily rely on them to overcome injury, illness, and to simply help them live better, more active lives.
Unfortunately, the trust we place in these devices and their manufacturers is sometimes betrayed by defects that can result in serious injury and death. In fact, in some cases the manufacturers are aware of these issues and choose to not reveal that information until many people have already been affected by the defective product.
Some common defective device recalls have included (but are not limited to):
- Cardiac defibrillators
- Heart synchronizers
- Vaginal mesh
- Insulin pumps
- Coronary stents
- IVC filters
- Hip replacement units
- Breast implants
- Duragesic patches
When California patients are harmed by medical devices, they turn to the Arnold Law Firm for legal guidance and representation. If you or a loved one has been injured by a medical device, you are likely suffering from unexpected medical bills, loss of wages, mental stress, pain and suffering and serious health side effects.
How to Reduce Your Risk of Being Injured by a Defective Drug or Medical Device
The easiest way to minimize the risk of taking a dangerous prescription drug or having a defective device implanted into your body is to educate yourself. By using the internet, you can find readily available statistics and detailed product information including reviews from existing users.
It also helps to ask questions talk to your physician about the risks of any product that you may be considering, including any side effects or known problems with the drug or product. Also, be sure to read the instructions on a bottle of prescription medicine before you take it.
- Bair Hugger Warming Blanket
- Bard IVC Filter Injuries
- Biomet M2A Magnum Hip Implant
- Meningitis Outbreak from Epidural Steroid Injections
While there are laws in place to protect patients harmed by such devices which are the same product liability laws that protect consumers of other products, such as toys, food, and pharmaceuticals. It's VERY IMPORTANT to be as informed as possible before agreeing to use any medication or medical devices.
It must be noted that developing a successful medical device liability case can be very difficult and often requires the skills of an experienced defective medical device lawyer who understand the complexities of medical litigation.
