Defective Medical Devices

Medical devices are manufactured to prolong and save lives. Unfortunately, in some cases, medical products are defective. If a defective medical product has injury to you, or if you have lost a loved due to a defective medical device, we can help. Some known defective medical devices include the following:

  • Defective pacemaker - a pacemaker is a medical device implant designed to regulate your heartbeat
  • Defective defibrillator - a defibrillator is a medical device implant used to stop ventricular defibrillation, which causes heart attacks (cardiac arrest)
  • Defective mediport - sometimes referred to as an infusaport or chemotherapy lifeport, a mediport is a medical device implant used to infuse medication directly into the blood
  • Breast implants - breast implants may develop leaks and cause harm

When medical device manufacturers place profits above safety, and their greed caused you, or a family member, serious injury, seek experienced legal help immediately to help you get the compensation you deserve and curb this behavior.

Defective Drugs

Known defective drugs, that have been subject of a drug recall, include the following dangerous drugs manufactured by Merck, Searle, and Pfizer:

  • Vioxx
  • Bextra
  • Celebrex

The litigation involving those drugs mostly revolve around cardiovascular problems, including heart attack, chest pain related to heart disease, stroke, blood clots, and even death. If you have used one of these drugs, and experienced one of the cardiovascular problems above, contact an experienced Louisiana defective drug attorney. Drugs should help people; not hurt them.
