If a medical device failed, it could lead to serious injury, brain damage or wrongful death. While medical devices are supposed to undergo rigorous testing before being used in humans, sometimes these devices fail. When they do, a medical device product liability attorney can investigate the case to see if you are entitled to compensation.
If you were injured by a faulty medical device, or if a family member died because a medical device broke or was faulty, you could be entitled to significant monetary compensation. Call the national product liability lawyers

Why do medical devices fail?
A medical device may fail and hurt or kill someone if there is a defect in the design, or a mistake during the manufacturing of the product. For example, the material used in the medical device may not be suitable for use in a body or could contain certain materials which could injure someone more severely due to other bio materials in someone’s body.
Some medical devices have been known to migrate or break apart over time, leading to significant injuries, complications, additional surgeries and even death.
What are some examples of medical device product liability cases?
Frozen laparoscopic rod - In a case we handled, a patient was undergoing surgery. During the surgery, the rod froze up and causes severe burns to the patient. Instead of a small incision area, the patient had a larger burn hole requiring scar treatment for a long period of time.

What compensation can I recover in a medical device product liability lawsuit?
If you were the unfortunate victim of a medical device failure or you lost a loved one due to a broken medical device or faulty device, you may be entitled to compensation as a result of the incident. Compensation depends on what losses you sustained, but some of the possible damages may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Prescription expenses
One of the goals of a product liability lawsuit is to reimburse you for any expenses that you incurred, and to fight for compensation for the pain and suffering that you went through and may continue to go through the future.
