Heart Devices

Representing Heart Device Implant Patients Injured in New York

Before new medical devices such as implanted heart devices are placed on the market, they have to be thoroughly tested to make sure they are safe for consumers. Testing allows for discovery of any potential risks associated with the device.

Medical device companies are responsible for informing doctors of potential risks, so doctors can share these risks with their patients and informed decisions can be made. When manufacturers fail to so, they can be held accountable for injuries or deaths that occur due to their defective medical device.

At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., we hold defective medical device manufacturers responsible. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed after using an implanted heart device, discuss your legal options with a product liability attorney.

Is My Implanted Heart Device Defective?

Complications arising from implanted heart devices vary widely. Malfunctioning pacemakers and defibrillators can short-circuit, failing to deliver a shock to the heart when needed or transmitting electrical impulses at the wrong time. Defective stents can damage arterial walls and form blood clots.

Warnings or recalls have been issued for a variety of implanted heart devices, and many other types of heart devices are known to cause serious injury, including:

  • Stents, including drug-coated stents, drug-eluting stents (DES) and medicated stents
  • Pacemakers and lead wires such as Boston Scientific's Insignia and Nexus pacemakers
  • Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), such as Medtronic's Sprint Fidelis and Guidant's Prizm 2 DR, Contak Renewal and Vitality devices
  • Artificial heart valves
  • Heart pumps

Get the Justice You Deserve. We Fight. You Win.

As the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues to look at consumer complaints against medical device manufacturers, more pacemakers, defibrillators, heart pumps, valves and stents are being recalled. If you or a loved one has been injured by blood clots or other complications and you think a defective heart device might be to blame, talk with the lawyers at Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman about your medical device lawsuit options — even if you aren't sure.
