What Compensation is Available for Injured Medical Device Recipients?

by Staff Blogger | November 14th, 2017

Medical devices are designed to help alleviate symptoms of a variety of conditions and illnesses and to provide relief to patients suffering from chronic pain, heart abnormalities, and joint pain or immobility. Even when patients make the decision to receive a medical implant, they may require several months of consultations and check-ups before they are approved.

Unfortunately, some patients who go through this process and receive medical devices—which often involves risky surgeries—end up feeling worse than they did before they received their implants. Their lives may even be in jeopardy as a result. At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, it’s our goal to make sure victims of defective medical devices get the help they deserve.

Our defective medical device lawyers fight to get compensation for our clients for things like:

  • Medical bills – People who receive defective medical devices must not only pay for their original surgeries, but they may also have to pay for revision surgeries.
  • Lost wages – Many recipients of defective medical devices suffer so much pain and immobility that they become unable to return to work for months or even years.
  • Pain and suffering – Going through a potentially risky surgery only to have their health worsen is a nightmare scenario for patients, resulting in even more health complications than before their implants.

Victims of defective medical devices may feel helpless after receiving them. We’re here to make sure their voices are heard. If you or a loved one were harmed by a defective medical device, don’t wait to get the legal advocacy you deserve. Call today for a free consultation.
