Defective Medical Devices

Has joint replacement surgery left you with unsatisfactory results? Has a surgically implanted medical device caused more harm than good?

Defective medical devices can cause heart attack, stroke, infection and even death. Fortunately, victims have rights.

If you have been injured by a defective medical device, call Reed & Terry, L.L.P.  in Sugar Land, TX, serving Houston and Austin.

What Is a Defective Medical Device?


A defective medical device causes injury, infection and overall harm to the patient. This can be caused by a design flaw, a manufacturer error or improper marketing and labeling of the medical product. The attorneys at our law firm can also help determine if your medical device has been recalled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Do I Have a Defective Medical Device Case? Talk to a Reed & Terry, L.L.P. Lawyer to Find Out

The best way to know for sure if you have a defective medical device case is to speak with one of our Sugar Land, TX, attorneys serving Houston, Austin and surrounding cities. Here are two important determining factors:

Injury or Harm

If you or a loved one have suffered injury or other losses from a medical procedure, you may be entitled to compensation. For a defective medical device case to be successful, you will have to prove your injury or other losses were caused by the medical product and not by an underlying health condition or a practitioner's negligence.

Recalled Device

If your medical device has been recalled, you may be entitled to compensation. Every year there are major recalls of commonly used medical devices, affecting thousands of Americans. Recalled devices are usually defective products, and they can cause wrongful death, heart attack, stroke, infection, paralysis or other serious injuries.

What Medical Products Can Be Defective? The Most Common Defective Medical Products

The Food and Drug Administration has strict guidelines for approved medical devices on the market. However, that doesn't always prevent the device from being faulty and client injury from occurring. Below are some of the more common defective medical devices that have a high risk of harm:
Hip Implant

Hip Implants

Metal hip implants have frequently caused issues for patients undergoing a hip replacement. Metal hip implants can cause further injury and increase your risk of infection, which can lead to the need for additional medical care and surgeries.

Knee Replacement

Knee Replacements

A defective knee replacement can lead to an infection. Further surgeries and a prolonged period of immobility would be necessary if an infection does occur.  

IVC Filter

IVC Filters

IVC Filters are used to prevent blood clots from moving into the lungs. If defective, they can fracture, migrate, change position and even pierce your vein. 



These medical devices are used to help control the rhythm of your heartbeat. A defect in this product can lead to a life-threatening emergency.

Insulin Pump

Insulin Pumps

Insulin pumps are used to regulate a diabetic patient's blood sugar levels. If defective, this could cause a dangerous spike in blood sugar and cause severe and life-threatening harm.
