Medical devices such as pacemakers have enabled many people to live normal lives despite serious health problems. After a heart attack, after a catastrophic injury or after surgery, patients rely on medical devices such as the following for therapeutic purposes:
- Replacement body parts such as knee and hip replacements
But what happens when a patient is seriously harmed by a defective medical device? Sometimes many people are injured leading to a class action (mass tort) lawsuit. In other cases, an individual who was harmed may file a lawsuit on his or her own. The results of such a lawsuit may set important legal precedents and may save others from suffering the same fate.
If your medical device was named in a recall or if the company that manufactured or sold your medical device has been named as a defendant in a lawsuit, you are urged to discuss your case with an attorney with ample experience handling such claims. Campbell, Lauter & Murphy, Attorneys at Law, is a valuable resource, and we welcome your inquiry.
In defective medical device lawsuits, legal issues that come to light may include "duty to warn," or warranty claims. Defendants may include prescribing manufacturers, vendors and other health care personnel.
