Medical Equipment Product Liability Lawyers

Doctors are now able to use medical supplies to improve a patient’s health and well-being because of technological advancements in medicine. Today, doctors utilize medical products for a wide range of diseases, including heart disease, kidney failure, joint replacements, and contraception. However, many companies attempt to launch new items as quickly as possible in order to make a quick profit.

Pharmaceutical firms also try to get new medications through the Food and Drug Administration to be the first drug on the market. Manufacturers frequently fall short in testing new items and medications, failing to disclose the product’s unknown flaws or potentially dangerous side effects. When this happens, Texas Personal Injury Lawyers is standing by to hold them accountable.

What Are The Most Common Causes Of Defective Medical Equipment Injuries?

 

Defective medical items can result in significant bodily injury. When implanted medical devices short circuit and induce life-threatening sepsis or infection, they can produce internal burns. Bacterial and fungal infections are common in the implants of many people.

When the adverse effects of a medicine outweigh its possible advantages, it may be labeled as defective. The drug was produced incorrectly, leading to severe adverse effects.

Defective products and medical devices often result in the following types of injuries:

  • Nervous system damage
  • Tissue or bone damage
  • Infections
  • Cardiovascular damage
  • Permanent disability
  • Allergic reactions
  • Severe strokes
  • Bleeding on the brain
  • Organ damage
  • Medication error resulting from faulty IV lines administering the wrong dosage
  • Chronic pain

If you or a loved one have experienced any of the aforementioned symptoms, consult with a medical equipment product liability lawyer right away.

What Kinds Of Defects Are Connected To Medical Equipment Product Liability?

 

The consequences of defective goods and medical devices can be devastating. There are three distinct ways a medical device or drug might cause harm:

Design defects: A design error is a flaw in a medical device or drug at the level of its design or blueprint. The device is inherently hazardous owing to the design. Even if the item was constructed from the greatest materials, the design flaw makes it dangerous to everyone who uses it.

A heart pump that short-circuits and fails, causing serious internal burning damage, is an example of a design defect in a medical device.

Manufacturing defects: If the product’s design is good, then the problem might be on the manufacturing side. A manufacturing defect occurs when a product is made with insufficient materials or without regard for its specified design.

A typical example of a medical device manufacturing defect is when a drug is produced with the incorrect components, resulting in adverse effects.

Marketing defects: When a medical product or device is incorrectly labeled, it is known as a marketing defect. Medical devices and medicines must include clear instructions for use in order to be legal. Doctors, hospitals, and patients must be informed of the dangers following FDA approval. Manufacturers are also responsible for keeping track of any new risks or health hazard information.

A medical product’s marketing defect, for example, would be if the producers of a knee replacement component neglected to notify doctors and patients about any potential dangers.

Defective medical equipment can result in serious and irreversible injuries. Injured consumers may suffer temporary or permanent harm. Defective products and medical technology can lead to fatal issues in certain situations.

Are Defective Products & Medical Devices Injuries On The Rise?

 

Medical goods have seen a significant boost in popularity over the last ten years. Defective medical goods and devices, on the other hand, have resulted in an alarming number of injuries and fatalities. According to numerous sources:

  • According to estimates, 1.6 million individuals are injured by prescription medications each year as a result of adverse effects.
  • Defective medical devices cause more than 200,000 accidents each year.

In the last ten years, data from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was used to produce a medical device injury report, which investigated faulty medical equipment. The following are the most prevalent defective medical goods identified out of 1.7 million injuries:

  • Surgical mesh caused 60,795 injuries
