We place a significant amount of trust in medical devices, both inside and outside of the hospital. Some devices are designed to promote health and stave off illness, while others are so significant that our lives depend on their proper functioning.
Sadly medical manufacturers choose business over quality at times and rush products to market. The result is an inordinate amount of pain, sufffering, and death on the part of patients. When that happens, the victim and their loved ones can pursue their legal right to compensation.
External machines, like in the case of dialysis, act as the lifeblood of a patient. When the machine or it’s liquids are improperly produced the severity of effect is immediate and often fatal.
Many medical devices actually reside in the body, as is the case with pacemakers, hip replacements, etc. When these items start to malfunction or degrade the pain can be severe and lead to even worse internal problems.
The following are a handful of specific defective medical devices that you can learn more about:
- Depuy Knee Replacements
- Depuy/Stryker Hip Replacements
- Johnson & Johnson Pelvic Mesh Implants
- Kugel Hernia Mesh Implants
- Medtronic Infuse Bone Grafts
