Medical devices have changed millions of lives for the better. When your doctor recommends a particular medical device, it’s because they believe it will benefit your health and well-being. Unfortunately, though, thousands of patients every year discover that sometimes, a medical device can go very, very wrong. These defective devices can leave the patient with lasting injuries, permanent damage, and could even result in death. It’s heartbreaking when you’ve put your trust in a medical device that so devastatingly lets you down. The damage it causes is through no fault of your own, and you shouldn’t have to pay the price for a medical device’s mistakes.

A Defective Medical Device Is Not Your Fault

Medical devices are supposed to be rigorously tested before they make it into a surgical suite. The companies who make these devices are responsible for the testing and ensuring that the device they offer is safe. There are governmental oversight agencies that are meant to catch defective devices before they make it into the medical community and are used on patients. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. All too often, the companies who make these devices are aware of the potential issues but do all too little to prevent them.

Have You Been the Victim of a Defective Medical Device?

There are thousands of cases every year of defective medical devices being used on patients across the United States. Some of the most common cases come from devices such as:

  • Pacemakers
  • Knee replacements
  • Shoulder replacements
  • Transvaginal meshes
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Ear implants
  • And more

If a medical device has failed to work, caused an increase of pain in your body, or even resulted in permanent damage, you have a right to seek compensation to cover your past and future medical costs, past and future lost wages, and pain and suffering. Medical manufacturers need to know that they will be held accountable for their products and that they cannot release devices that haven’t been properly tested without consequences. If you’ve been the victim of a faulty device, you deserve compensation to cover your time, pain, and expenses.
