Cleveland Defective Medical Devices Attorneys
Winning Serious Cases in Ohio Since 1946
Medical device manufacturers spend a lot of time promoting their products to the general public. They often suggest in their advertisements that consumers suffering particular maladies can rely on their devices to improve patient health and enhance existing quality of life. The problem is that a number of these products turn out to be unsafe, and patients are often the last to discover the downsides.
Sometimes, this is because medical devices are sold without adequate disclosures. In other words, injured consumers discover they were never given the opportunity to evaluate whether the benefits promised by the doctor, hospital, or manufacturer were enough to outweigh the risks associated with using the devices.

How to Tell If a Medical Device Is Defective
It is not always easy to tell when a medical device is defective. Generally speaking, these devices are intended to make your life easier by reducing pain, increasing mobility, and decreasing the severity of your symptoms. When you receive a medical device or undergo a procedure and experience increased or persistent pain, prolonged mobility issues, and other complications, it could be a sign that something isn’t right.
Signs a medical device may be defective include:
- Product recalls
- Unexplained injuries/illness
- Internal bleeding
- Unusual and/or persistent pain
- Mobility issues
If you notice any of these or other complications after receiving a medical device, such as a hip implant or IVC filter, contact a trusted medical professional right away.
