Many Californians rely on medical equipment to maintain their health and well-being. These necessary medical devices can mean the difference between a productive life and being bed-ridden.

Who Is Liable for Medical Equipment Defects?

The big corporations that make huge profits manufacturing medical devices are often responsible for the faulty products. These companies are tasked with conducting safety tests on the expensive equipment before it reaches patients. Makers of things such as implants, defibrillators, surgical devices and others have a duty to thoroughly vet products before submitting the design for FDA approval.

One of the key issues has been companies that rush their product through the process in order to take advantage of a market need and earn higher profits. They sometimes exploit the FDA’s 510(k) approval program to fast-track items and fail to conduct adequate safety due diligence. This disregard for patient safety can be actionable by a civil lawsuit under California product liability laws.

Common Faulty Medical Equipment and Injuries

While most medical devices prove beneficial to everyday people, others cause tremendous harm.

Some of the more well-known devices and injuries include the following.

  • Metal Hip Replacements: Thousands of recipients have reportedly suffered injuries and toxicity from these implants.
  • Coated Stents: Recipients have suffered blood clots, bleeding and allergic reactions.
  • Pacemakers: Devices have been subject to recall due to life-threatening malfunctions.
  • IVC Blood Filters: These devices have reportedly failed to filter out blood clots. Injuries and deaths have resulted.
  • Transvaginal Mesh Injuries: This surgical implant was designed to help correct incontinence due to pelvic stress. The product reportedly degrades and can cause organ perforation.

Other medical devices that have been flagged for defects and malfunctions include insulin pumps, blood glucose testers, and wheelchairs.

If you or a loved one have been injured due to a defective medical device, put the product in a secure location. This will be important evidence to help prove fault. Put together information about the item, how it was packaged, and any literature that came with it. Do not give the device back to the supplier or manufacturer. Contact an experienced California attorney who can bring a product liability lawsuit against the negligent parties on your behalf. It is fundamentally unfair that you or a loved one should suffer a loss due to someone else’s carelessness.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case.
