Commonly Defective Medical Devices
There are thousands of medical devices for sale in the United States. Even if a product is deemed safe for use and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there is still the potential for dangerous side effects or risks to be discovered at a later date. Many potential side effects or other dangers of medical devices are not identified until the product has been on the market and in use by patients for some time. Some commonly used medical devices that carry a risk of potential injuries include the following:
- Metal on metal hip implants
- Intrauterine devices (IUDs)
- Transvaginal mesh
- DaVinci surgical robots
These are only a few examples of potentially harmful medical devices and, if you have suffered injury from any type of defective medical device, the attorneys at the Dolman Law Group, can assist you.
