Defective Medical Devices
As technology changes and advances, many consumers expect that new medical devices will emerge that will help them to better manage health conditions and assist them in performing daily functions and tasks. However, there are a number products available today that have recently been linked to adverse complications such as hip replacement devices, robotic surgical systems, intrauterine devices and transvaginal mesh implants. If you have been injured by one or more of these products, consider seeking help from a New York defective medical device attorney.
Although manufacturers of medical devices may attempt to design, produce, and market safe devices to improve consumers’ quality of life, in some instances, they may instead create faulty or defective products that can cause serious or fatal injuries or damage to a patient. Patients who used or were fitted with a device that was used correctly and still caused harm may be able to work with a New York defective medical device attorney to seek damages for their injuries.
Some patients may believe that pursuing a claim against a medical device manufacturer is relatively easy, particularly if it is quite evident that an injury was caused by a defect in a product. However, in many cases, the experience of a New York defective medical device attorney is necessary and can help victims to recover the appropriate amount of compensation to which they may be entitled. In many defective medical device cases, many patients have had to undergo costly and sometimes painful revision procedures to remove the device or correct the damage caused by a product. These unexpected costs can become expensive, and plaintiffs may decide to work with a defective medical device attorney to attempt to recover money to pay for their medical expenses such as rehabilitations, treatments, surgeries, physician’s visits and more.
How a New York Defective Medical Device Attorney Can Help
Medical device makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their devices, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a device maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
People injured by a defective medical device may be eligible to recover money for:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
The families of those killed may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
