Defective Medical Devices Lawyer

Medical devices, such as ventilators and pacemakers, allow people to survive health issues that were untreatable in the past. Unfortunately, many medical devices have been recalled or contain hidden flaws that endanger patients. Defects in medical devices can be caused by a design weakness, a lack of warnings or instructions, or a manufacturing mistake. Proving that a medical device is harmful in court can be labor-intensive and challenging, requiring experts and the help and guidance of an experienced defective medical devices lawyer. If you have suffered injuries, due to a defective medical device, contact Loncar Lyon Jenkins today. Our knowledgeable defective medical devices attorneys can investigate your case and help you pursue compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and other losses.

How Can a Defective Medical Devices Attorney Help?

Too often, manufacturers rush products to the market without adequate testing, knowing that these products could be dangerous or defective. An unscrupulous company can find loopholes or shortcuts through FDA regulations and rules to put their products on the market faster, putting the safety of patients at risk. 
Injured victims are often faced with costly medical bills, lost income, and  lengthy recovery times. Product liability litigation can be very complex, requiring the skills of an experienced defective medical devices lawyer. At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our defective medical devices attorneys have extensive experience holding product manufacturers and others involved in the sale and manufacturing of defective medical products accountable for your injuries and other damages. 
If you suffered injuries due to a defective medical device, you may be entitled to compensation. In addition to past and future medical expenses, you can pursue compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering 
  • Lost wages
  • Past and future medical care costs 
  • Emotional distress

At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our defective medical devices attorneys know how to investigate and litigate cases against negligent medical device manufacturers.  
When you file a claim you must prove:

  • The device contains a defect
  • The defect in the medical device caused your injuries 
  • The manufacturer was aware of the defect before the device was put on the market but failed to do anything to avoid it

At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, a defective medical devices lawyer on our legal team can help you fight for fair compensation for your injuries and other losses. They will investigate your case to uncover the truth to hold the negligent party responsible for the harm you have suffered.

The guidance and patience exhibited by Attorney LaRue and his team were paramount in the successful navigation of this event for my family and I. In a perfect world I won't have to ring his phone anytime soon, but should the Truck of Life dump on me again, I wouldn't hesitate to dial them up.

What Are Examples Of Defective Medical Devices?

Medical devices are pieces of equipment or instruments that are designed to diagnose medical conditions, prevent medical conditions, and treat, mitigate, or cure a medical condition. Medical devices can be used by a medical professional who is administering care or used directly by a consumer. When these devices malfunction or fail, it can result in death or severe physical injuries. 
Common types of defective medical devices include:

IV Units

IV units are devices that are used for intravenous administration of blood, medication, or fluids.

Pumps

Pumps deliver nutrients, medications, or fluids to patients. Defective pumps can result in improper administration or dosages.

Stents

A stent is a small tube-like device that is inserted into arteries or other vessels, to improve blood flow by keeping them open.

Heart Valves

A heart valve is a prosthetic device that is used to replace diseased or damaged heart valves.

Pacemaker

A pacemaker is an implantable device that regulates the rhythm of the heart by sending electrical impulses to heart muscles.

Dialysis Machines

A dialysis machine filters and purifies blood in people with kidney failure.

Surgical Plates or Screws

Surgical plates or screws can be used to provide support during orthopedic surgeries or they can be used to stabilize fractured bones.

Intrauterine Devices (IUDs)

IUDs are placed in the uterus to prevent pregnancy.

Cosmetic, Prosthetic, or Surgical Implants

These implants are used in surgical procedures, including reconstructive  surgery, breast augmentation surgery, or joint replacement surgery.

Joint Prostheses

An artificial joint can be used to replace arthritic or damaged joints, such as knee or hip replacements.

Liability for Defective Medical Device Injuries

Defendants in medical device lawsuits can include:

  • The physician who recommended the device failed to warn a patient about potential dangers
  • The manufacturer 
  • The lab where the device was tested 
  • The medical sales representative who marketed and sold the device 
  • The medical facility that was part of the chain of distribution 
  • Retail suppliers who distributed the medical device

How to File a Product Liability Lawsuit

In Texas, you will have two years from the date the defective device injured you or the date you discovered your injuries to file a lawsuit. Failure to file within this time frame can result in the dismissal of your case. If your case is dismissed, you will be unable to recover any compensation for your injuries.

Once you contact a defective medical devices lawyer at Loncar Lyon Jenkins, they will review your case and let you know if they believe that you have elements of a product liability claim. If so, they can file the paperwork to bring your case to the civil court before the deadline.
