Holding Manufacturers Accountable For Defective Medical Devices
When medical devices function properly and help people, they can seem like a miracle. Artificial hips can allow older people a greater degree of mobility for example. But, when a medical device does not function as promised, the manufacturer needs to be held accountable for the harm that defective or dangerous device causes.
The person who hoped that a particular medical device would relieve a condition he or she was living with, may now be living with additional pain and disability due to the defective device. Further, because many defective medical devices are implanted, the person who has been harmed by one of these devices will generally need to go through the pain and recovery of at least one additional surgery to remove the device.
Some types of medical devices that have caused injuries include:
- DePuy hip replacements
- Transvaginal mesh
- Drug-coated stents
