Legal help for victims of defective medical devices

Defective medical devices can cause significant harm and injuries to victims which is why they need to be familiar with the legal protections available to help them when they have been harmed. Personal injury legal remedies can help victims who have suffered injuries and harm because of defective medical devices.

Medical devices are regulated federally and there are a host of protections available to injured victims including the option to bring a personal injury claim to hold manufacturers of defective medical devices accountable and ensure injured victims receive the help they need with their physical, financial and emotional injuries that result from a defective medical device. Under federal law, medical devices are defined as instruments, apparatuses, machines, implants or other similar articles used for the treatment or prevention of diseases.

Medical devices can include stints, pacemakers, hip replacements, knee replacements, breast implants; dialysis machines; and other devices as well. When a defective medical device fails because it was not properly manufactured, the manufacturer may be liable for the harm suffered by victims. Manufacturers of a defective medical device, as well as medical care professionals and hospitals, may all be liable for the harmed suffered by victims as a result of a defective medical device.

A personal injury claim for damages can help victims of defective or dangerous medical devices recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages. It is essential for victims of defective medical devices to be familiar with the legal protections available to them and armed with the ways the legal process can help with the damages they have suffered.
