Defective Medical Devices

 Although medical devices have revolutionized health care, when they are defective these devices can have disastrous consequences. If a medical device manufacturer designs and sells a defective medical device, they may end up injuring patients they are supposed to help.

  • Pacemakers that stopped or failed to keep a proper heart rhythm

  • Any malfunctioning device, such as a pain pump or insulin pump
  • Breast implants or any devices that can cause damage to the immune system
  • Defective hip implants or knee replacement parts
  • Infections caused by improperly made or non-sterilized devices
