Defective medical devices can cause catastrophic injuries. Those harmed by a defective medical device may have various options for seeking justice and recovery for their injuries and losses.
The manufacturers of defective medical devices set out to have their devices fulfill a specific purpose. Some devices assist doctors in diagnosing or treating a patient’s injuries. These can include surgical devices or diagnostic tools. Other defective medical devices are intended for implantation in the patient’s body. These can include cardiac, cosmetic or orthopedic devices. When these devices fail to fulfill their intended purposes, they can cause serious harm to the patients who depended on them for healing.
Reasons For Defective Medical Devices Lawsuits
The reasons for lawsuits stemming from defective medical devices can be as varied as the devices themselves. Some implants can also cause pain, infection, bleeding or other complications after surgery. Some of these defective medical devices can leave toxic chemicals in the body, such as cobalt toxicity from metal hip replacements. Others can spread diseased cells from one part of the body to another, such as the power morcellators used in women’s health clinics.
