There is a special trust we have when we put our health in the hands of medical professionals. When your doctor recommends the use of a medical device, you are placing great faith in this judgment. You are also placing confidence in those who have designed, manufactured, and marketed the recommended device. Unfortunately, medical device injuries are frequently at the center of personal injury lawsuits, including product liability claims. Even though medical equipment goes through a stringent approval process with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), manufacturers are still liable for any injuries caused by their medical devices.
Medical Device Injuries in the News
Medical device injuries can result in long-term health issues and additional surgery. Such was the case in 2015 when several hip implant manufacturers faced multi-million dollar lawsuits. Several devices were found to be faulty and unreasonably dangerous. And in some cases, manufacturers failed to warn the public of the severe problems with their product.
In Southern California, Spinal Solutions, a company that distributed medical hardware to surgeons, was accused of counterfeiting its medical implants, leading to devastating medical issues for countless patients.
Compensation for Victims
Medical device cases are usually extremely complex and overwhelming. There is a huge amount of red tape, and the fight for justice usually involves going against major corporations and their bureaucratic insurance companies.
