Cases We Handle Involving Defective Medical Devices
If you’ve been injured by a medical device, we can help you fight for compensation. At Bubalo Law PLC, we are privileged to use our legal skills to help injured patients hold medical device manufacturers accountable after they have been harmed. These include:
Hernia mesh is used to repair hernias but can cause many problems. Mesh can cause infections. In some cases, it may move inside the body and perforate surrounding tissue and organs. This can cause severe pain, nerve damage, and other serious complications, requiring additional surgery.
This type of surgical mesh is used to repair problems with pelvic organs. Transvaginal mesh can migrate in the body, break apart, and easily pierce surrounding tissues resulting in severe pain, bleeding, infection and other complications.
Metal hip replacements can cause problems for patients including allergic reactions, numbness, swelling, and difficulty walking. Hip replacements also may cause more severe problems such as neurological impairments, thyroid problems, and kidney impairment.
This permanently implanted birth control product can cause pain, bleeding, headaches, and many other complications. If you suspect you’re suffering injuries from using an Essure contraception device, contact an attorney today.
IVC filters are supposed to help prevent dangerous blood clots. However, they have problems of their own. The devices may fracture or migrate in the body causing serious injury to organs. Some IVC filters are only intended for temporary use.
Drug pumps regulate the amount of medicine that is given to patients. When these pumps malfunction, they can deliver too much medicine or not enough.
Heart stents keep arteries open and flowing. Too often though, they can lead to clots and other complications that can threaten a patient’s life.
ICDs monitor a patient’s heart and provide electrical charges to keep the heart operating correctly. If this device or their batteries fail, it can lead to serious problems and even death.
There are many defective and dangerous medical devices on the market. If you believe you have been injured by a faulty one, contact a defective medical device attorney today. An attorney can review your case and help you understand how to proceed.
How Long Do You Have to File a Claim?
The amount of time that you have to file a claim is often referred to as the “statute of limitations.” Statutes of limitations vary from state to state and depend upon the type of claim. In many states, victims of medical device injuries generally have one year from the date of discovery of the problem to file a case. In some cases, this period begins to run after an FDA or manufacturer recall. If you fail to file within the time allotted, you may lose your right to seek compensation.
If you have suffered injuries and you suspect a defective medical device was the cause, don’t wait to get legal advice. Give yourself and your attorney the advantage of time to investigate and prepare your case. If you have been injured, or your medical device has been recalled, contact an attorney today.
