Medical Malpractice Cases Arising from Medical Equipment Failure
Malfunctioning medical equipment can create dangerous problems that result in significant injury.
One distinct danger of equipment failure is a misdiagnosis. 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.
Medical equipment failure claims may involve issues such as:
- Dialysis machine defects
- Surgical tool defects
- Faulty imaging machines
- Lab errors
- Monitoring machine failures
In an equipment failure case, an attorney's main objective is to prove who should be held liable for your injuries, ailments, or hardships. In some 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.
