Defective Medical Devices

Although medical devices have revolutionized health care, when they are defective these devices can have disastrous consequences. Furthermore, instead of recalling a faulty device, some manufacturers will try to cover up the problem and deny anything is wrong with their device. When the product remains on the shelves of medical supply stores and in hospitals, more people will inevitably suffer.

Manufacturers do not create devices with the intention of hurting patients. A device becomes defective when it is not properly tested or the research is not completed before the product is marketed.

Examples of defective medical devices include:

  • Breast implants;
  • Pacemakers;
  • Heart valve implants;
  • Hip implant or knee replacement parts;
  • Improperly manufactured or designed devices;
  • Improperly sterilized devices, especially gynecological devices;
  • Pain or insulin pumps; and
  • Devices that cause damage to the immune system;
