West Palm Beach Heart Device Recall Attorneys
Technology has done amazing things to improve the health of heart patients. Pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD), stents, artificial heart valves and other devices have helped to improve the performance of the heart and help their recipients continue to live productive lives.
Representing victims throughout Florida and across the United States.
Every new invention, however, must go through the necessary testing to ensure that it will work as promised before it is released to the general public so that patients can feel confident that the device poses no ill effects. If it does, patients should be informed of them so they have a full understanding of the risks compared to the benefits of using the device.
It is the responsibility of the manufacturers to inform doctors of the risks associated with the use of their product. When they fail to do so, manufacturers can be held accountable for any injuries or deaths that occur as a result of their products. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed from using an implanted heart device, it is important that you seek the advice of a product liability attorney at the law firm of Babbitt, Johnson, Osborne & Le Clainche.
Johnson & Johnson Heart Stent Litigation
One recent focus for our Florida defective implanted heart device attorneys has been reviewing cases from across the country involving Johnson & Johnson heart stents. Stents are wire mesh tubes that are used to keep a previously blocked artery open. Following the procedure, patients were put on an anti-clotting medication, such as Plavix, for a period of time to ensure that the stent remained unobstructed.
The risk of the artery becoming reobstructed was grossly understated. Approximately 90 days after going off of the medication, reobstructions occurred due to excessive blood clotting which resulted in many patients suffering heart attacks, some of them fatal. If you or a family member has suffered any type of negative impact from the use of a heart stent, we will fight to help you recover full and fair compensation.
