Medical Devices

St. Louis Medical Malpractice Attorneys

St. Louis Defective Medical Devices AttorneysDoctors often use implanted medical devices to improve the quality of patients' lives. In fact, many people depend on medical devices to survive. When a medical device is defective, however, it can irrevocably diminish the quality of a patient's life and, in the most extreme cases, result in death. Product liability lawsuits arise when defective products cause harm to the very patients they are supposed to help.

Makers of medical devices are held to a high standard of care in the manufacturing process to prevent injuries to patients. When that standard of care is breached, patients deserve compensation for the financial and emotional suffering resulting from their injuries. The following are just some of the types of medical devices that have caused serious personal injury and death:

  • Pacemakers
  • Hip replacements
  • Knee replacements
  • Body implants
  • Joint replacements
  • Heart valve replacements
  • Defibrillators
  • Arterial stents
  • Prosthetics
