It is important to be able to rely on the accuracy and safety of medical products if you are facing medical health problems. Unfortunately, the occurrences of defective medical products being released into the market are higher than you may think. Every year, thousands of people are injured by defective medical products. These products and devices range from defective defibrillators to defective knee and hip replacements. No matter what the defect, medical products that are dysfunctional or unable to perform the task that they are meant to perform can cause serious injuries for people already suffering from health problems.
A medical product can be called defective when there is a design or manufacturing defect present in the product. This may include inadequate warnings of possible side effects that the product may cause. Manufacturers of medical products are responsible to provide safe products for consumer use. If you have suffered injuries due to a defective medical product, the manufacturer may be liable for your injuries.
In some cases, the effects of the defect can cause a patient’s health problem to become even worse. Any negative experiences with these types of medical devices should be reported to a doctor immediately.
Contact your doctor if you experience anything abnormal with your medical product. After visiting your doctor, contact a knowledgeable attorney to learn more about your legal rights and options. An experienced attorney will be able to ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
