Have You or a Loved One Used a Defective or Recalled Medical Device?
Medical device related injuries are on the rise. As medical device creations, inventions, and usage becomes more prevalent and common, defects and recalls are growing. Recent medical device lawsuits have shown the FDA approval doesn’t guarantee that a medical device is safe. Sometimes new medical devices are created too fast and not enough testing is completed.
When you are prescribed a medical device from your physician, you believe it to be safe. It should be safe. It should be safe. But according to the US Food and Drug Administration, “safe” means that the benefits of the equipment outweigh the risks for the population the device is intended to help. In other words, a safe medical device doesn’t necessarily mean it is harmless.
A defective medical device means that its potential risks outweigh its possible benefits to the consumer and can lead to lawsuits.
The FDA tests medical devices and approves them prior to becoming available to people, but some recalls happen and these can cause particularly long-term effects. The FDA keeps an updated list of common medical devices that have been shown to be defective.
