Types of Defective Medical Devices
Although medical devices can become defective for a variety of reasons, there are several types of products that are known to frequently result in problems. When defective, these dangerous products can lead to severe, even lifelong, complications. Identifying the device responsible for your suffering is the first step to filing a claim.
Commonly defective devices include:
- Knee implants
- Hip implants
- Drug eluting stents
- Guidant defibrillators
- Kugel Mesh patch
- Pain pumps
- Transvaginal mesh
Common causes of defective medical products include poor manufacturing protocol, defective design, and inadequate marketing tactics. In any case, when your life has been affected by an ineffective medical device, you may have grounds to file for malpractice or advance an action lawsuit. Consult with an experienced injury attorney in Portland to learn about your legal options at this time.
Pursuing Legal Action
Individuals who are considering filing a lawsuit regarding injury that they suffered from defective medical devices generally have two options – class action lawsuits and individual litigation. Class action lawsuits are filed for an entire group of people who have experienced injury from the same company or product. Individual litigation, also referred to as private action, is a lawsuit filed by just one person.
Class action lawsuits are beneficial because they are generally for much higher amounts of money and are effective at getting the attention of the company being sued. If your claim is not very large, a class action lawsuit may be in your best interest. When there is a limited amount of money for a recovery, a class action lawsuit splits the money up evenly amongst those who filed.
Private action, however, has the appeal of controlling the settlement amount and the legal process. Private action is also advantageous for those who have lost a great deal of money or have suffered a unique injury.
Retain an Attorney with Two Decades of Legal Experience
Filing a lawsuit on your own, whether it is class action or private action, is often confusing. If you approach a lawsuit without consulting a personal injury lawyer, and you may end up with far less money than you deserve.
