Injuries from defective medical devices are serious and possibly life-threatening. In many cases, recovery from faulty medical device injuries requires additional surgeries (revision surgery), prolonged hospital stays, rehabilitation and a new solution for your health condition. All of this amounts to very expensive medical bills, time off work, significant inconveniences, possible emotional anguish and possibly a long road to recovery.
The Appearance Of Medical Device Problems Over Time
Many medical device recalls are made several years after the device has been implanted in thousands of people across the country. If you have had a faulty medical device in your body for years, damages might be extensive and could have created other medical problems and painful symptoms. Revision surgeries might not fully correct the problems you have experienced, and serious injuries can be life-altering, debilitating or life-threatening.
Who Can Be Held Accountable For Defective Medical Devices?
Manufacturers are responsible for notifying the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the public of the flaws and potential risks of medical devices. Failure to do so may be considered negligent behavior on the part of the manufacturer. If negligence can be proven, the medical device company can be held liable for injuries, illnesses and death caused by defective medical devices.
