It's easy to assume you're in safe hands when you follow doctor's orders. After all, your doctor has your best interests in mind. That may be true, but there are numerous manufacturers who put profit before the patient. These companies have manufactured defective medical devices that can injure or even kill an unsuspecting, trusting patient. Rather than seeking to aid those in need, these manufacturers are looking to make a fast fortune.
Defective medical devices can injure a patient in a variety of ways. An artificial joint can fail to perform properly, requiring replacement. A pacemaker might stop working, leaving the patient unprotected. Pelvic mesh can pierce blood veins and cause more trauma than the original malady.
These incidents are not mere side-effects or complications-they're usually caused by shoddy quality control. In some cases, companies were aware of the risks of releasing their products, but they did it anyway. Some of these cold-hearted firms even factor in the cost of lawsuits when they extrapolate projected profits on a new device.
If you've been the victim of a defective medical device, you need to hire experienced Baltimore medical malpractice lawyers to protect your interests. The Snyder Litigation Team is ready to go to court for you if you've been injured by the manufacturer of a defective product.
