Medical Equipment Failure

Work with Our St. Louis Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Even with the skilled and competent care of our physicians and healthcare professionals, risks to our health and well-being exist when medical equipment fails. Medical equipment failure - which is generally due to manufacturing or inherent design defects - puts all of us at risk of serious or fatal injuries.

Improper training or use of complex equipment can also lead to equipment malfunctions and consequential injuries. Making contact with an experienced St. Louis personal injury lawyer can help you better understand your legal rights and options in the case of a medical equipment-related injury.

Medical equipment is expensive, delicate, and complicated and, due to the important role it plays in keeping us healthy, should adhere to strict standards of manufacturing, maintenance and operation.

Examples of equipment that can lead to serious injury or death if defective or improperly used or maintained include:

  • Heart defibrillators
  • IV pumps and equipment
  • Anesthesia machines
  • MRI machines
  • X-ray equipment
  • Blood pressure monitors and equipment
  • Cancer and other diagnostic machines

Failure in medical equipment can be the fault of a manufacturer, hospital or doctor, and in all cases constitutes medical malpractice. If your injuries lead to massive medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages, you could be eligible to receive compensation for those damages.

Fight for Fair Compensation

If you or a loved one has been victimized by medical equipment failure, you need the help of an exemplary attorney.
