When you go to the doctor it is normal to assume that the medical devices you receive will not cause more harm than good. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
Dangerous or defective medical devices — such as faulty surgical instruments, implants, pacemakers, and prosthetics — can give rise to a product liability claim if a person who undergoes surgery or uses a medical device is injured or dies as a result. Although monitored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a medical product can be defective in its design, manufacturing process, or marketing strategy.
TYPES OF DEFECTIVE MEDICAL DEVICES
Any medical product can suffer from a manufacturing or design defect that renders it dangerous to users. However, some medical products are more frequently defective than others, including:
- Defective Hip Implants
- Drug-Coated Stents
- Transvaginal Mesh
- Guidant Defibrillators
- Da Vinci Surgical Robots
- IVC Blood Clot Filters
A defect with any of these items could result in devastating illness, injury, or in the most serious circumstances, death.
