Defective Medical Devices When the Result Means Everything, Contact Us

New Mexico Defective Medical Device Attorneys

We Can Help if You Were Harmed Because of Negligent Corporations and Medical Professionals

A medical device is any item that is used to correct a medical condition, manage an injury, or increase the ability of a person who is living with a health issue. A medical device may be an internal device, such as a hip replacement, or a device that is used outside of the body such as a wheelchair. Medical devices also include items that are used by doctors and during hospital stays.

Unfortunately, medical devices do not always work in the way they are supposed to. When an error is made in the design, manufacturing, or marketing of a medical device, the item is considered defective. A defect can cause injury to users. People who use medical devices rely on functioning items to maintain their health, and any errors can jeopardize their wellbeing.

We represent patients who have been harmed by a defective medical device, as well as the families of victims. Contact the New Mexico defective medical device lawyers of Lyons & Simmons, LLP to get started on your case.

Types of Defective Medical Devices

It is possible for any medical device to be defective if it is designed or manufactured in error. There are some types of medical devices that are more frequently discovered to be defective than others, and are often the subject of injury cases.

Some medical devices that have recently been labeled as potentially defective and are the subject of current litigation include:

  • Hip replacements
  • Knee replacements
  • Certain birth control implants/intrauterine devices (IUDs)
  • Hernia mesh

This list is only a sample of defective medical devices. The listed devices are only products that are currently known to be defective — it’s possible that a medical device you use is defective but is not the subject of current ligation. Contact us to speak about your situation and discuss the possibility of filing a claim.

Who is Liable for Defective Medical Device Injuries?

Medical device defects are commonly the result of negligence by the companies and individuals who are responsible for designing and manufacturing items. These parties must take care to create a product that is safe and conduct tests to ensure consumers will be protected from injury. Sadly, corporations do not always take these precautions and harm can result.

Defect-related injuries could be the fault of people who are responsible for marketing and selling a product. These parties must ensure that doctors and patients are aware of the risks of a device and are provided with proper information. Additionally, they must pull defective products from shelves and do what they can to protect consumers from harm. A person or group may be liable for damages if they fail in any of these responsibilities.

A defective medical device injury may partially be the fault of doctors and other medical professionals. For example, if a doctor continues to use devices that are known to be defective, they could be held liable for damages.
