Malfunctioning Medical Devices


Medical devices, such as implants, surgical tools, or prosthetics, are used by doctors to treat patients for many conditions.

The majority of the time this is a safe process that helps the patient recover, however, these devices can malfunction and be dangerous or defective.

A medical device may be defective in its design, how it was manufactured, or how it is marketed and used. Each of these defect types can cause a patient to be harmed, either through new symptoms, additional surgery, or even death.

Patients have a right to be protected from these malfunctioning medical devices, and if you were harmed, you may be eligible for financial compensation from the product manufacturer to cover your lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
