When You Have a Faulty Medical Device
Defective Medical Device Lawyer
A defective medical device lawyer could help you when you’ve been the victim of a faulty product. Although these devices have had positive effects for many people, some devices can still cause harm. For instance, many of these products can be fast tracked to the market if they’re similar enough to an older device. However, this can have some serious consequences to the health of those using them.
A case we dealt with in the past involved metal hip implants. Although they were similar to past implants, the company failed to realize that the product would cause friction. This lead to many people getting a form of heavy metal poisoning from metal shards rubbing off the device. With the help of a defective medical device lawyer, these patients were able to file a lawsuit together in what is called a mass tort.

When you have a medical device implanted into your body and causes you severe injury, it’s a defective medical device. For instance, a line of metal hips were used for hip replacements only to be discovered later that the metal was breaking down in the patients body causing metal poisoning.
There are two ways that a defective medical device goes to court. One way is through a mass tort. This means that multiple people have been injured by the negligence of a medical device company and they join up for a larger lawsuit. The other way is medical malpractice. For instance, if a doctor is responsible for installing a medical device and does so in a negligent way that causes you injury.
