Medical Device Failures Can Come from Many Sources
The medical device industry is enormous, approaching $500 billion in the United States and growing, according to multiple economic analysts.
Thousands of medical devices are on the market. You’ve probably heard of some of the biggest companies that make medical devices—Abbott Laboratories, Boston Scientific, General Electric, Johnson & Johnson and Medtronic among them.
These are some of the most common types of medical devices. They can all improve lives, but also cause complications:
- Coronary stents
- Hip replacements
- Insulin pumps
- Intra-uterine devices (IUDs)
- Knee replacements
- Plates, rods, pins and screws for bone fractures
- Spinal cord stimulators for pain
- Spinal fusion hardware
If you or a family member are victim of a medical device failure, you don’t have to accept it as horrible luck.
Someone is liable for what happened to you—maybe a device manufacturer, doctor or hospital.
As in many injury claims, negligence could be a factor in what happened to you.
If that’s the case, avenues may be available to help you move past this.
