Dangerous Medical Devices
Advances in medical technology have saved a countless number of lives throughout the years. Artificial organs, prosthetic limbs, and prosthetic joint replacements have all undoubtably improved the lives of millions and served as a great achievement for humanity. However, many times these devices do not function as intended. Due to the negligence of the manufacturer or distributor of the product, a defect may exists such that it makes the product unreasonably safe. In Florida, product makers and distributors are held to a higher standard than the norm for the various medical devices they place into the market.
Many people have used a medical device (such as a defibrillator) in order to better their health, only to suffer injuries from that same device. Medical devices can include: Stents, Implants, Contraceptives devices, Defibrillators, Joints Replacements, and others.
