What are defective medical devices?

Defective medical devices are medical products that cause harm or injury to patients. Many devices are responsible for harm to patients, including:

  • Hernia mesh products, like transvaginal meshes
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Metal hip replacements
  • Blood clot filters
  • Other products

Different kinds of lawsuits come from defective medical device injuries

Defective medical device lawsuits will be pursued as product liability cases in many situations. However, there are circumstances where a doctor or other provider could also be deemed negligent for your poor health outcomes related to the devices. You could hold that provider accountable. 

Victims in medical device lawsuits can seek compensation for multiple forms of injury—the initial injury caused by the defective device and for the health complications that followed. 

Your lawyer will identify all forms of compensation you could seek, pursuing damages for your medical care needs—past, present, and future. They can also file a lawsuit if you lost a loved one to a defective device.
