Columbia Personal Injury Lawyer > Orangeburg Medical Device Lawyer

Orangeburg Medical Device Lawyer

Medical devices are a critical part of modern medicine. Common devices help patients recover from heart attacks and strokes, as well as maintain independence in old age. Unfortunately, some devices are defective. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has primary responsibility for ensuring the safety of products, too many defective devices end up on the marketplace. Call The Stanley Law Group today. An Orangeburg medical device lawyer is available to discuss your medical condition, as well as the device you are having trouble with. Defective devices cause huge expenses and pain, and we can discuss your legal options in a free consultation.

Is Your Medical Device Defective?

Patients use medical devices regularly. Some are permanently implanted, while others are temporary until a patient can recover. Some of the most common devices used today include:

  • Artificial hips
  • Pacemakers
  • CPAP machines
  • Prosthetics
  • Stents
  • Blood clot filters
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Plates and screws
  • Mesh

Often, patients have no idea anything is wrong. However, they might feel constant pain, or their medical condition deteriorates when the device was supposed to promote healing. You should consult with a second doctor if you feel that you are not improving.

Many devices are designed defectively. When this happens, the manufacturer might pull the entire product line from the market. Thousands of people using the product could all suffer negative health effects. Other products are defective due to a specific manufacturing defect or poor materials. In that case, perhaps only your device fails to work properly.

Defective medical devices cause many harms to patients and their families:

  1. Additional medical expenses. You might need additional surgeries to remove a defective device and implant a functioning one. An exploding or malfunctioning device could lead to a heart attack or stroke and require emergency treatment.
  2. Pain and suffering. Medical treatment should make us well. Harmful medical devices prolong the pain and inconvenience a person experiences.
  3. Lost income. Many patients cannot work because their medical devices do not work properly. They will need additional time to recuperate, or they can’t leave the house because of chronic pain.

Helpfully, you might qualify for financial compensation. We can use South Carolina’s product liability laws to sue a manufacturer for a defect and seek compensatory damages.  These companies have powerful lobbies in the State House and Congress, as well as large insurers fighting to defend them. You deserve an experienced lawyer on your team who knows how to build a case properly.

Speak with an Attorney in a Free Consultation

Patients reasonably expect devices to work as advertised, and for doctors not to prescribe a device which is defective. Unfortunately, too many are dangerous and end up making patients sicker. If you have questions about your legal rights, call The Stanley Law Group. An Orangeburg medical device lawyer can provide answers and discuss generally what to expect when bringing a product liability claim. You have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit, so please do not hesitate to reach out to our firm today.
