Medical Device Injury
Medical Device Injury in Maryland
Medical devices enable health care professionals to do their jobs and provide thousands of patients with the ability to live normal lives. Heart pumps, pacemakers, and false limbs and joints greatly increase the quality of life for people throughout the United States. Unfortunately for some patients, these medical devices may cause serious complications.
Health risks, including adverse effects of the devices themselves, can sometimes result in the death of the patient. These complications are usually preventable, especially if they are detected soon enough by a doctor. If you are suffering or know someone who has died because of a failed or defective medical product, then you may have grounds for compensation
The following are some of the most commonly used medical products known to have defects or to have caused harm during use:
- Transvaginal mesh
- Dialysis machines and needles
- Pain medication or insulin pumps
- Hip implants
- Knee implants
- Staples that hold together incision or surgery sites
- Biological tissue and human donor organs
There has been much controversy over human tissue donors not being tested prior to harvest. The sale and use of illegal tissue and diseased organs has also been known to occur, and if you are suffering as a result of a human tissue defect, then you need to speak with a defective product lawyer. Untested organs, tissue, and blood can cause serious diseases and infections in recipients and sometimes can result in death. You may have grounds for a lawsuit or claim for compensation, so you need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
