Any type of medical device or implant may malfunction if it has an inherent design or manufacturing defect. Defibrillators and pacemakers are of a particular concern, as are hip implants and bone screws. Almost 250,000 defibrillators and pacemakers have been recalled since 2005. A defective device of this kind may have the opposite effect of restarting or maintaining a normal heartbeat, leading to deadly consequences. A defective hip implant or bone screw may cause serious side effects requiring additional surgeries due to implant migration, tissue damage or screw breakage. An attorney at our Kansas City law firm can assist you with any case related to a defective pacemaker, defibrillator or specific claims involving Calaxo screws, DePuy ASR hip implants and Zimmer Durom Hip Cup implants.
