When a West Virginia patient has surgery to implant a medical device, it is with the expectation that he or she will receive quality care and that the products are safe. It is tragic and disappointing when these expectations are not met. Sadly, many patients suffer the repercussions of an unacceptable standard of care or an unsafe medical device without realizing that they may have grounds for a products liability claim.
Unexpected complications can lengthen the time that a person needs to recover, and in some cases, they can cause serious injury or death. For those implanted with unsafe or ineffective medical devices, it is critical to take quick action in order to protect one’s physical and financial well-being. If you had hip replacement surgery or suffered complications from any other type of medical device, it is important to talk with a lawyer.
