Wrongful Death Caused by Defective Medical Devices
Ohio Wrongful Death Attorneys | Medical Device Defects
When you or your loved one needs a defibrillator, knee or hip replacement, or other medical device, your expectation is that it will improve or maintain your health. Sadly, this is not always the case. Medical devices can fail or prove to be defectively manufactured or designed. When medical devices fail, the failure results in serious injury, pain or wrongful death.
Recalls of medical devices are on the rise. During just the first half of 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recalled 21 medical devices, more than twice the number of medical devices recalled during the first half of 2009.
If your loved one has suffered wrongful death caused by a dangerous or defective medical device of any kind, the manufacturer of the device may be held liable.
