What Are Defective Medical Products?
A defective medical product is anything that causes more harm than is does good. This can include any prescription drug, medical device, medical implement or machine. The defect may have occurred due to the manufacturing of the product, the implantation of it, the improper use of it, or its failure to actually do what it's supposed to accomplish.
Some of the most common defective medical products include the following:
- Dangerous drugs: Drugs that were falsely advertised, falsely labeled, caused harm, or don't do what they say they will.
- Defective hip or knee implants: When a person receives a hip or knee replacement, they are often made up of multiple pieces. Sometimes, one piece or the entire implant can fail or even cause a horrible allergic reaction.
- Defective medical products: This can include anything that has been implanted for medical purposes, such as: stents, pacemakers, birth control types, IVC filters, and transvaginal mesh.
Defective medical products can also include implantable tubes that migrate, medical systems that don't work, and even robotic surgery that fails.
When to Seek Justice
When you've suffered because of a defective medical device, it may mean that you have to repeat the surgery you already had. It can also mean having things removed and replaced or having undergo multiple treatments to recover from how the dangerous drugs affected you. When these things occur, it can be painful and very expensive, so please don't hesitate to seek compensation.
