Medical Injury FAQ

What If I Was Hurt by a Medical Device?

Some common medical devices can include the following:

  • Artificial hip, knee, or shoulder implants
  • Insulin pumps
  • Surgical mesh patches
  • Defibrillators
  • Power morcellators
  • Other products.

State and federal law impose a strict duty on the manufacturers to make sure they use care and conduct extensive testing before they put their products on the market. They need to be aware of any possible side effects, and they need to inform doctors and patients about these risks.

It is essential to consult your physician if you believe you may be suffering harm because of a medical device or defective pharmaceutical you have been taking. If your doctor confirms, you should seek legal assistance.

If a defective medical device has harmed you, you may bring a product liability action that can provide compensation for the costs you've incurred. You may also be eligible for lost past and future income as well as the pain and suffering you have endured. Medical side effects can range from mild to severe, so depending on your case you may be liable to different degrees of compensation. Some defective drugs taken by women during pregnancy can result in their child being born with congenital disabilities or they may suffer birth complications. Some medical implants have also caused more hurt than help and require the patient to have additional surgeries to repair the damage done by the implant.

If you have experienced side effects similar to the ones listed above, you should take action by speaking with an attorney about what kind of claim you can file. Call the legal team at Arnold & Itkin LLP today at (888) 493-1629.
