Medical Devices

No product is expected to work as accurately, and as safely, as a medical device. These, after all, are items built to protect us. But when they are poorly designed or manufactured, defects can result. So, too, can injuries and even death. Instead of healing users, these devices harm them.

Those who design and build a medical device have a responsibility to create a safe product. When they fail, their devices fail, and people can suffer. But negligence doesn't have to go unanswered. Consumers may have a lawsuit and recourse against the designer, manufacturer, or distributor of a faulty medical device. Such a lawsuit may be based on one or more of the following criteria:

  • A defect in the manufacturing of the product
  • A defect in the design of the device
  • Inadequate warning given to the consumer

Unfortunately, many medical devices can have adverse side effects when defects are present or the proper warnings are not given. Examples include:

  • Hip replacement
  • Breast implants
  • Knee replacement
  • Surestep Blood Glucose Meter
  • CT Scan
  • Incontinence devices
  • Bronchoscopes Dental Sealants

Medical device injuries don't have to go unanswered. Contact William E. Johnson, P.A. for a free consultation and case evaluation.

Florida Transvaginal Mesh Lawyers
Attorneys Representing Victims of Defective Transvaginal Mesh Products Nationwide

Transvaginal mesh is a synthetic or biologic material permanently implanted in women to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or to support the urethra to treat urinary incontinence. Women might undergo the surgical procedure following birth to repair the weakened vaginal wall.

However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has found that transvaginal mesh, regardless of manufacturer, can expose patients to health risks such as the erosion of the product into surrounding areas of the pelvis and pelvic organs. Part of the product can become implanted as intended to strengthen the vaginal wall while some of it is not absorbed into the tissue. If complications arise as a result, removal of the implant can be complicated and costly. Other health issues could develop.

It is important to seek appropriate medical care immediately if you notice persistent abdominal pain, unexplained fever, tenderness in the pelvis or other unusual symptoms.

At William E Johnson, P.A., we are experienced at holding manufacturers of defective medical devices and implants accountable. When devices or implants fail to protect patient safety and/or are inadequately designed, the negligence of the manufacturer should be addressed. Our resourceful and knowledgeable attorneys can help you determine if you have a case for a lawsuit to recover from your injury and costs.
