Medical Equipment Failure

The Consequences of Medical Equipment Failure

Doctors and other medical professionals rely on certain machines and equipment to correctly diagnose and effectively treat illnesses and injuries. Although great advances in a variety of types of medical equipment over the years have greatly increased our ability to treat a wide number of ailments, sometimes this equipment malfunctions. When medical equipment fails, patients can be seriously injured. If you have been injured as a result of equipment failure, you should speak to a Los Angeles medical malpractice attorney from our firm. At Bostwick & Peterson LLP, we are dedicated to providing our clients with the expert legal representation necessary to take on these big hospitals, equipment manufacturers, and insurance companies.

Medical Malpractice Cases Arising from Medical Equipment Failure

Malfunctioning medical equipment can create a number of dangerous problems that could result in significant injury. One distinct danger of equipment failure is a misdiagnosis. In this day and age, doctors use machinery to assist them in diagnosing a wide number of ailments. A misdiagnosis, especially misdiagnosing cancer, can have a profound effect on a patient's life. Missing a cancer diagnosis while it is still in the early stages should never happen, especially if your doctor performs the right tests. You should not have to pay the price for equipment that does not work like it's supposed to. In the past, our firm has helped our clients win over $500 million in compensation for medical malpractice related injuries, medical negligence, and misdiagnosis.

In an equipment failure case, one of your attorney's main objectives is to prove who should be held liable for your injuries, ailments, or hardships. In many cases, the doctor or other medical professional operating the equipment may not be responsible for the failure. When equipment fails unexpectedly, our legal team will compile a strong case against the equipment's manufacturer or the company responsible for maintaining that equipment. No matter what may have caused the medical equipment to fail, our firm will be your advocate throughout the entire legal process and fight aggressively for the compensation you deserve.
