Problems With Medical Devices

There are several surgical tools used in the course of medical treatment:

  • Pain pumps
  • Surgical utensils or devices
  • Surgical robots such as the da Vinci Surgical System
  • Laparoscopic devices used during arthroscopic surgeries and similar surgeries
  • Other surgical implementations such as clips

Anyone of these medical devices has the potential for failing during or after a medical procedure. Malfunctioning or defective medical products can cause bleeding and other internal damage or result in another form of injury.

Sometimes there is a fundamental design flaw that was not caught in the design or manufacturing phase. It is possible that defective materials or processes were used in manufacture of the device. In some cases, the company might be aware of the potential problem and decided the risk wasn't too great to sell dangerous products. For these kinds of injuries, we will aggressively pursue the manufacturer of defective medical products to seek compensation for your injuries.

It is less common for a doctor to negligently use or misplace a medical device, but it can happen. In these cases, we will pursue a claim for medical malpractice.

Going The Extra Mile For Your Case

We have experience working on product liability settlements if that is what you are looking for. However, we are ready, willing and capable to go the extra mile to properly set your case up for a successful trial.

When we take your case, we are prepared to focus on everything necessary to succeed.

We have a nurse on staff, and will consult other medical professionals and experts when necessary. This offers a certain degree of medical expertise about injuries sustained due to broken or failed medical devices that most firms are not in a position to offer. We also employ product liability specialists when necessary.
