When implanted medical devices go wrong, they can cause serious damage. Patients with defective medical devices are often faced with the difficult choice of having additional surgery or leaving the defective device in place. It’s a choice no one should have to make. If you’ve been harmed by a defective medical device, contact the national personal injury law firm of Watts Guerra.
Implanted medical devices, such as pacemakers, hip replacements, pain pumps, and transvaginal mesh have revolutionized the way medicine is practiced. Countless Americans have had medical devices implanted directly into their bodies.
But when these devices fail, these people are faced with a choice between painful surgery or leaving the faulty implant in their bodies. The pain and suffering this can cause is almost unimaginable. People who have been harmed by these devices have a right to seek compensation for their injuries.
If you’ve been harmed by a defective medical device, you should speak with an experienced attorney to learn about your rights.
When medical devices are defective due to a manufacturing or design defect, hundreds of people can suffer from the same type of injuries. For this reason, lawsuits against medical device manufacturers are often handled in a type of lawsuit called a “mass tort”.
A mass tort happens when a number of cases are brought together in a single court and evidence is shared between the cases. Mass torts are often confused with class action lawsuits, but they are actually very different. In class action suits, a large number of plaintiffs are all given the same judgment, in mass torts each case is still valued individually.
