Medical establishments have a legal obligation to ensure that all components of any device used, in respect of a patients care, reach an industry standard, which minimises the risk of error or malfunction. Where these products have been fitted, and complications have occurred, or the device has malfunctioned, it can cause considerable pain and discomfort, a negative effect on health and wellbeing, and in most cases, the need for further surgery to reverse the damage.
It is vital that medical technicians have proven evidence to suggest that all medical products are reliable, and compatible, with the patient in question, where this has failed to happen, you may be entitled to make a medical product liability claim for compensation.
Medical products that most commonly defective include:
- Hip Replacement
- Knee replacement
- Faulty heart devices such as pacemakers and valves
- Cosmetic Implants
- Insulin Pumps
- Surgical Mesh
- Medical Equipment used during treatment
