What to Know About Defective Medical Devices
Many people have used medical devices to improve their lives. From advances in surgery to improved mobility to life-and-death matters including heart health, devices have made medical miracles possible. Unfortunately, some of these same devices also caused irreversible damage. Despite the good medical devices offer, there are instances when they do more harm than good. And all too often, those negative side effects could have been avoided, had the manufacturers properly tested the product. Or at the very least, acted faster when a problem was discovered.
Many of these companies took shortcuts or were able to avoid the approval process altogether for their devices. There are medical devices on the market and in use by patients that underwent little to no testing. Worst of all, medical device manufacturers knew about the dangers associated with their devices and chose not to warn consumers about the danger.
Limited medical testing might have revealed problems, but manufacturers went forward with the products anyway. In other cases, reports were submitted after the devices were used and patients were injured.
Regardless when they became aware, medical device manufacturers knew of the dangers and attempted to cover up the problems, allowing even more people to be injured. Not only were they careless, they knowingly allowed people to be injured after they knew their products were dangerous.
If you were injured by a faulty medical device, you deserve compensation.
