Defective Medical Devices Lead to Severe Complications

October 05, 2016

Any time you go under the knife, there are a million things you worry about. Will the medical staff do a good job and carry you through safely? How will your body respond to the anesthesia? Will the surgery fix your condition or make it worse? Although those concerns are reasonable, there’s another concern that few ever consider: defective medical devices.

Most of us just take for granted that the medical components used in surgery are well constructed and surgically sound, but unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Defective medical devices can lead to serious complications, including chronic pain, corrective surgeries, and even death. At Stewart & Stewart, we’ve seen firsthand the severe complications a defective medical device can have on a patient, which is why when it happens to someone in our community, we’re ready to defend their legal rights to compensation.

If you or someone you love suffered complications from a defective medical device, you may be entitled to significant compensation for your injuries. Call our Indiana personal injury lawyers today for a free evaluation of your claim. The amount of time you have to bring a lawsuit may be limited, so contact us today.
