Defective Medical Device Injuries

Every year, sales from medical devices such as heart valves and stents, bone graft material, heart defibrillators and pacemakers, orthopedic joint prosthetics, surgical mesh, and medical infusion devices, just to name a few, bring in a combined total of over $200 billion in revenue worldwide, making one of the most profitable enterprises in the health care industry. It is for this reason that medical device companies are in a constant race to invent the next groundbreaking medical device or make advancements to existing medical devices, even if it comes at a cost to public safety.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is charged with keeping Americans safe from health hazards posed by defective medical devices. Despite their efforts, the FDA has not been able to keep some defective medical devices from reaching the public. This, coupled with the rush by the medical device industry to make huge profits, can lead to potentially dangerous medical devices reaching the unsuspecting public.

Dangerous medical devices that are in use every day cause catastrophic injuries or even death, and the risk of injury or death is especially high for people that count on medical devices over a long period of time. It is ultimately the responsibility of a medical device company to verify that their product is safe before anyone uses it.

If you or a loved one have been harmed by a defective medical device, or you have had a medical device implanted in an unapproved, off-label manner, you may be entitled to compensation.
