Defective Medical Devices

Unlike medications, which might become part of your daily routine, medical devices—replacement joints, pacemakers, pain relief pumps, and many others—literally become part of you, often by way of invasive, sometimes painful surgical procedures.

When a medical device stops working (or, perhaps worse, begins to harm you from the inside), it’s not a matter of just switching to a different one. Typically, new invasive surgery will be required. In the meantime, you might be at increasing risk of permanent damage. Companies that make and sell medical devices are supposed to research the dangers exhaustively… but they don’t always do so.
