If you are like many people, you depend on a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) to keep your heart beating correctly. Any type of design defect in the device — or any type of error when it was implanted — can seriously affect your health. It may even threaten your life.
At Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C., in New York City, we diligently fight for full and fair compensation for those who have been injured by faulty medical devices or surgical negligence. We also represent families that have lost loved ones to wrongful death.
Over the past 40 years, our personal injury lawyers have confronted some of the most imposing product manufacturers in the world. We are not afraid to bring a lawsuit against any medical device company, no matter how large, to seek the compensation you deserve.
Both Guidant And Medtronic Have Created Faulty Devices
Two of the most recognizable names in U.S. medical manufacturing, Guidant and Medtronic, have both been forced to recall certain types of pacemakers in recent years. In some cases, patients who received the faulty devices experienced warning symptoms such as fainting. In other cases, the patients had no warning at all before their pacemakers failed.
Likewise, both major corporations have recalled certain ICDs after it was discovered that the devices had defective seals, memory issues, eroding wires and other problems. Some patients with these devices suffered intense and unnecessary shocks, while others did not receive the vital shocks they needed.
