How Medical Devices Can Lead to Injuries and Medical Malpractice Claims in Hollywood

There are many reasons why medical equipment and devices can lead to injuries:

  • Incorrect use of the equipment and devices
  • Incorrect information may be given to the patient about proper use of the devices and equipment
  • Doctors and other staff maybe incorrectly trained about the use the devices and equipment
  • Defects in equipment and devices
  • The information that a manufacturer provides with the equipment may be defective in some way
Who Is Responsible For My Injuries?

There may be multiple liable parties and medical injuries resulting from defective equipment. Defective devices can result in many types of claims, including:

  • Personal injury claims
  • Medical malpractice claims
  • Birth injury claims
  • Product defects claims
  • Misdiagnosis claims
  • Class-action lawsuits
  • There are many situations where defective equipment and medical devices in a setting can lead to a legal claim:
  • A doctor uses forceps or other medical devices incorrectly during delivery or pregnancy, leading to birth defects
  • A manufacturer does not properly test and check medical equipment or transplant equipment, leading to a class-action lawsuit when patients become ill from the medical device or item
  • A patient sustains injuries as a result of defective crutches, wheelchairs, and other medical devices
  • A patient sustains infections, or other serious injuries as a result of incorrect use of scalpels and other medical devices during surgery or a procedure
  • A patient is misdiagnosed or fails to get life-saving treatment because staff at the hospital or clinic incorrectly use screening equipment or testing equipment -- either with the patient or at the laboratory

In all of these situations, the results can be devastating. Birth injuries caused by defective use of forceps or other medical equipment, for example, can haunt child for the rest of their lives. A patient who has sustained a serious infection as a result of incorrect use of devices during a procedure or surgery may face a lifetime of permanent injury or may face life-threatening complications.
