Many patients require medical device or products s to help treat or manage a medical condition or injury.

If your medical device malfunctioned or product prescribed has caused you serious injuries, contact David C. Chavez Law Firm, 505-865-9696 to learn more on how we can help you.

Medical Devices with Common Issues

All types of medical devices can be defective, including pacemakers, ventilators, hip implants, prosthetic knees, heart valves, and more. Some medical devices that have been the subject of defective product claims include the following:

  • AMS transvaginal mesh
  • Mirena intrauterine device (IUD)
  • Triaminic vapor patch
  • Essure
  • Zofran
  • Taxotere
  • Talc baby powder
  • Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters
  • DePuy hip implants
  • DePuy ASR hip systems
  • Biomet hip implants
  • Zimmer hip implants
  • Zimmer durom cup
  • Stryker hip implant
  • Attune knee system

When defects are discovered and patients sustain injuries, the manufacturer should report the issue to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) right away. Companies should take steps to correct the problem to prevent injuries to more patients. However, this does not always happen, and products that are either defective or inherently dangerous stay on the market.

Protecting the Rights of Injured Patients

These devises and or products can result in severe and life-threatening injuries, including perforated organs, metal poisoning, and more. Devices can also fail, which leaves a patient without the benefits of the device that they need. In either case, it is often possible to hold the manufacturer liable for your additional medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering, though this is not an easy process.

Multi billion dollar medical corporations have insurance representatives and legal teams ready to help them avoid liability in injury claims. For this reason, it is essential for you also to have an experienced lawyer advocating for your rights. You must prove one of the following:

  • The medical device had a defective design
  • The medical device was defectively assembled
  • The medical device did not come with adequate warnings of injury risks
  • The product you used caused the injury
