Defective Medical Devices
West Virginia Medical Malpractice Attorney
If you or a loved one has been injured through the use of a defective medical product, you deserve generous compensation for your pain and suffering, as well as for the significant financial expenses associated with these types of injuries. As the ability of medical science to address increasing varieties of conditions through the use of prosthetics, drugs and surgical equipment continues to advance, more and more people in West Virginia will be treated with potentially dangerous or defective products. In most cases, the equipment works well to alleviate or cure the targeted condition, but when defects or faulty design cause a worsening of the condition or if the use of the product leads to new problems and complications, it is possible to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
Medical Devices that Resulted in Injury
Common examples of medical devices that have caused illness or injury leading to legal action include:
- Hip or knee replacements
- Pain pumps placed in the shoulder
- Breast implants
- Intrauterine devices (IUD)
- Transvaginal Mesh
These are only few examples, and if you believe that you have been injured through a defective medical product, you should speak with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer to determine whether you have grounds to file a lawsuit. This is especially important if a loved one has died and you want to pursue a wrongful death claim.
