Patients needing medical treatment can gain a lot from technological advancements. While some gadgets only qualify as life-saving, others might enhance one's quality of life. However, several recent products have poor design, poor manufacture, or inadequate warnings regarding potential risks. Medical equipment defects can result in fatalities, severe illnesses, or degenerative disorders. This is where having a defective medical device lawyer comes in.

3. How Can I Tell if My Medical Equipment Has Been Recalled?

Many consumers are unaware of the recalls that might affect them. However, you don't have to be in the dark. You can simply check:

FDA's Website

The FDA's website lists recalled medical products that you can check before receiving a medical device and after. If you're having symptoms of a medical device not working how it should, you can check to see if it's been recalled.

The Manufacturer

Another place to look before committing to specific products, like a pacemaker or knee replacement, is the manufacturer's website. They are required by law to announce if there have been any recalls of their products.

Your Medical Device Lawyer

Contact a qualified medical device lawyer to discuss your options for compensation if you have suffered from a faulty hip implant or other devices.

4. What Medical Products Have Been Recalled Recently?

Some of the more common devices that have been recalled due to significant injury are:

Hip Implants

Hip replacement lawsuits have been against hip implant makers for medical product flaws. Product liability attorneys can help you with your case. Common issues with hip replacement defects are:

  • Blood clots
  • Bleeding
  • Infections

If you have any of these symptoms following a hip replacement, keep a record of everything and call an injury lawyer today.

IVC Filters

An IVC filter, or stint, is a small device that can prevent blood clots from traveling to the lungs. There was an FDA recall on these stints. If you have one of these devices, it can cause serious injuries, such as:

  • Blood clots
  • Device migration
  • Defects in the heart valve
  • Heart rhythm issues
  • Embolization
  • and more

Philips CPAP

A CPAP machine is mainly used to treat the life-threatening disease, sleep Apnea. The CPAP machine will help patients breathe during the night, preventing life-threatening problems. However, upon use, it's been found that due to the humidity in the hose, tiny black particles travel through the ventilation and into the lungs. The Philips CPAP litigation was filed in June of 2021.

Power Morcellators

Surgical procedures to remove uterine fibroids and other abdominal procedures frequently involve using a power morcellator. Power morcellators, unfortunately, can spread uterine cancer, including malignancies that have not yet been identified. Patients who think one of these devices may have contributed to the spread of their cancer may be entitled to sue the maker. To find out if you could be qualified to make a claim, get in touch with a faulty medical device attorney.

Hernia Mesh Products

When the contents of the abdominal cavity bulge through a weak spot in the abdominal wall, a hernia is a condition that results. Hernia mesh products are used to repair hernias. After a repair treatment, the herniated tissue is held in place using these surgical mesh products. They are regrettably linked to a wide range of problems for patients, such as:

  • Hernia recurrence
  • infection
  • discomfort
  • blockage
  • adhesion
  • and perforation

These problems might result in fatalities or major injuries in the worst situations.

Depuy Pinnacle Hip Device

Hip replacement is advised when a patient's hip joint is too worn out to function correctly. In these operations, a hip implant may be used. One type of implant used is the Depuy Pinnacle Hip Implant. This implant's metal-on-metal build has been linked to several issues. Metallosis, a disorder that happens when metallic pieces accumulate in the patient's soft tissues, can happen. The patient's organs and tissues deteriorate, the device fails, and revision surgery is required. If you believe faulty medical equipment led to your or a loved one's harm or death, don't hesitate to contact a defective medical device attorney to review your legal options.

Vaginal Mesh Products

Vaginal mesh can be placed for several reasons. Numerous vaginal mesh products have resulted in problems such as:

  • perforation
  • bleeding
  • incontinence
  • and more

Speak to a lawyer specializing in medical malpractice and product liability cases if you believe you may be able to file a claim.

5. What if I'm Injured From a Defective Product?

If you think you have been injured by a faulty device, contact your doctor immediately. Then, reach out to a medical device attorney to see if you qualify for a lawsuit. If so, we will work to get you the compensation you deserve. The lawsuit can be won by proving that there was a product fault and that it caused the damage. You can determine the degree of product liability by getting in touch with a skilled defective medical device lawyer.

Complications of Faulty Products

Faulty medical equipment can result in various problems, some of which may last a lifetime. Common adverse effects of dangerous medical equipment include:

  • Symptoms of pain
  • Infection worsening
  • Permanent impairment
  • Surgery revision
  • Death
