Protecting The Victims Of Defective Pacemakers And ICDs

When Medical Devices Pose A Threat To Patients

Pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are used to treat dangerous arrhythmias. These devices are intended to help maintain a normal heartbeat and protect patients from a potentially deadly condition. Unfortunately, pacemakers and ICDs have been the subject of numerous lawsuits and have suffered unacceptable rates of failure.

At Gori Julian & Associates, P.C., our defective medical device attorneys have more than 100 years of combined legal experience. We use that experience to protect the victims of defective pacemakers and other substandard medical products. If you have lost a loved one or suffered harm because of a pacemaker or ICD that did not work properly, we can help you get the money you deserve for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills and other expenses. We understand how serious illnesses and injuries impact families. Our goal is to see that the right thing happens for you and your family.

Medical Device Safety

Most patients imagine that every medical device undergoes rigorous testing before being approved for use. The truth is that countless defective medical products are released to the public every year. Some defects pose little threat to patients. Others can be fatal. Having a pacemaker or ICD fail to work correctly is potentially deadly.

Pacemakers have often failed due to substandard leads and defective batteries, though other defects are possible. Devices made by Medtronic and Guidant have been recalled due to high failure rates. The best way to hold these companies and the makers of other medical devices accountable is to seek full compensation when they fail and you suffer an injury.
