Seeking Class Action Relief Through the Legal Process

A previous post here discussed some of the risks and dangers associated with medical devices and implants. Each year, dozens of medical devices are recalled in the United States. In some instances, the Food and Drug Administration may issue a safety alert or recall notice for a defective medical device. However, not all recalled medical devices end up being available online.

While it is important that victims who have suffered harm as the result of a defective medical device are properly compensated, it is also important that valid claims for damages are handled properly. Medical devices and implants that may cause harm to individuals can include surgical mesh, hip implants, stents, pacemakers, defibrillators, breast implants, medication delivery pumps, medication patches and orthopedic screws and joint replacements.

Medical devices and implants are intended to improve the lives of individuals but, at times, may cause injury or other types of harm. Patients may suffer damages, including medical expenses, lost wages or earning capacity, loss of enjoyment of life and pain and suffering damages. Family members may also suffer a number of different types of damages.

The legal process is designed to aid parties involved in situations when harm has been suffered as a result of medical devices or implants. Depending on the circumstances, different parties may be liable for the injuries and harm suffered by the patient, and other patients may have suffered the same or similar harm. Because of the complexities that can arise when a product is defective and has harmed a patient or consumer, it is important that the parties involved understand the products liability legal process, resources and remedies available and how outcomes are reached.
