If you’ve been injured by a defective medical device, you may be entitled to file a claim or join a class-action lawsuit to collect compensation. Medical device manufacturers are required to thoroughly test their products before bringing them to the market.
Our defective medical device attorneys in Tucson take a strong stance against companies that cut corners and sell poorly tested products. If a product liability lawyer from Zanes Law finds that your medical device caused you harm, they’ll help you pursue damages from the appropriate manufacturer or company.
Types of Medical Devices That a Tucson Attorney Can File a Claim for
Medical devices can be used for a variety of different purposes, but they can also cause serious injury if they aren’t designed or produced correctly. Our defective medical device lawyers in Tucson are all too familiar with the wide array of products that patients have suffered from.
They’ll be able to help you recover from injuries caused by any of the following devices:
Devices like the Paragard copper intrauterine device (IUD) can cause significant side effects and health risks. If you’ve been injured by an IUD or another contraceptive device, an attorney from our firm can help you join a mass tort or file a personal claim against the at-fault company.
Faulty surgical implants have the potential to cause serious health effects. If you’ve sustained injury due to a hernia mesh or another type of implant, a lawyer can help you pursue compensation for your losses.
A number of implants and meshes have been brought up in lawsuits, so joining the effort to hold negligent pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers liable shouldn’t be too difficult. Reach out to an attorney today to see what your legal options are.
Defective stents can cause serious health problems like re-clotting and narrowing of arteries. If you believe your stent is having a negative impact on your health, you deserve to receive compensation for the suffering you’ve been put through.
Defibrillators are used to administer a shock to restart the heart of someone who is experiencing cardiac arrest. Unfortunately, a defibrillator can actually cause adverse effects when its “lead” is defective.
The lead is a wire designed to transfer energy from the device to the patient’s heart. If a patient’s defibrillator has a faulty lead, it could cause electric shock, heart palpitations, infections, and even death. If you or a loved one was injured by a defective defibrillator, an attorney can help you file a claim.
