Medical Device Defects, Failures, Negligent Maintenance

Medical Device Defects, Failures, Negligent MaintenanceMedical devices such as monitoring equipment, internal heart defibrillators, pacemakers, stents, hip implants and knee replacements, among others, may fail for a variety of reasons. When they are inserted improperly, not maintained properly or when a surgeon does not follow a manufacturer’s instructions or warnings, a malpractice action may be appropriate.

Of course, these types of devices can also be defectively manufactured or designed so as to make them unreasonably dangerous, in which case a product liability lawsuit can be brought when these defects cause injury. (See Boyers Law Group, Product Defects/Liability) It takes a lawyer experienced in both areas – defective products liability and medical malpractice – to know the type of case that should be pursued. Which type of case is brought is extremely important for a number of reasons. First of all, the statute of limitations is typically shorter in a malpractice action and there are a variety of evidentiary and procedural differences that apply depending upon the type of case that is brought.

Client Reviews
Rob very successfully represented our family (our son) in a medical malpractice case involving a birth injury where our son suffered brachial plexus at birth.
Rob truly has a passion and an amazing talent for law. His commitment to his clients is truly unwavering and we are forever grateful for the dedication and care that he put into our son's case. Without a doubt it is because of Rob that our son will have opportunities in life he may not have had and will have the resources he needs to make his disablility less of a hindrance for him.
Robert Boyers was recommended to me to handle my slip and fall case. I will be forever grateful to Robert for allowing me to feel that I was in the ‘best possible hands’ throughout the 2+ year process through and including the settlement of the case. Robert’s expertise, professionalism, and compassion were beyond what I observed in the legal field. And, his associate and staff were a fine reflection of Robert’s guidance. Robert was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. Rhonda
I hired Mr. Robert Boyers for a wrongful death case involving my father. I wasn’t sure what to do, or procedures to take until I met Mr. Boyers. I can say honestly from my heart I’m very thankful I met this attorney. Losing a father, and feeling lost is the worst feeling anyone would have. Mr. Boyers and his staff was very sincere and compassionate the entire time and then after during my case. Erica
I had a major accident where I sustained many injuries both short and long term. I was referred to Rob Boyers by a friend and I contacted him and he came to my house as I was completely incapacitated. He interviewed myself and my family as to the facts of the case and we subsequently hired him to handle my case as it relates to the insurance and the various medical obligations i was incurring.
To that end I am grateful to him and his services and consider him a friend to this day.
