Medical Device Recalls
Every year people all across the country turn to medical devices to help improve aspects of their everyday lives. Whether individuals need assistance with mobility, breathing, or even their heart, medical devices can help improve even the most natural bodily functions. While so many of these products can be helpful, there are a number of medical devices that may have the opposite effect. Individuals trust these products to function properly and safely. Unfortunately, some of these medical devices can cause serious health problems.
Each year numerous medical products are recalled, including joint components such as knees, hips, elbows and ankles. Recalls may come for a variety of issues including deterioration of the materials, movement from an implant site, and further risks. While these products are supposed to stop pain, unfortunately many of the recalled products may cause further pain and suffering. In addition, further surgery may be needed to correct the faulty medical device.
Whether the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a recall or merely taken complaints from consumers, you may be eligible for damages relating to the losses that you have suffered. If you have been affected by a medical product recall it is important that you discuss any concerns you have with your physician as soon as possible. Your doctor can help answer medical questions you have with regard to any potentially defective medical product. As for your legal rights, it is important to contact a firm that understands these types of cases. Defective Medical Device litigation can be expensive and complicated.
