Defective medical devices can often have the opposite effect from what they were intended. Instead of correcting or addressing a problem, defective medical devices can cause more harm.
When you are hurt or suffering from a medical condition, you rely on a hospital or medical facility and experienced doctors to make you feel better. They have equipment and devices that can assist with surgeries and procedures. Devices can even replace certain body parts and improve quality of life.
However, not every medical device works as expected. Defective medical devices can make a medical situation worse, cause a disability or lead to a loss of life. Your quality of life can be greatly impacted.
If that happens to you or someone you love, it can be devastating. It’s also an overwhelming time and you may not know where to turn or what to do. That’s why it’s a good idea to consult an attorney immediately so you know your options.
You may be able to pursue legal action for compensation for medical bills and other expenses. A doctor or specialist may be to blame, or it could be the device itself is defective. The company that manufactured the defective medical devices may be held responsible. In some cases, there may be a more widespread problem with the device and there could be a class action lawsuit.
There are many factors that need to be considered if you want to pursue legal action over a defective medical device. Make sure you choose a qualified attorney who will take the time to get to know all the details of your case and handle it with the consideration and compassion you deserve.
