We place a great deal of trust in medical equipment that’s designed to help us. But unfortunately, that equipment sometimes fails, causing pain and discomfort when we are most in need of support. When this happens with something as important as a defibrillator, it can have a serious impact on your life and confidence.
We’ve investigated a number of cases of defibrillator devices not working as they should. The device’s failings can either result in unnecessary shocks, causing discomfort to the person wearing it, or the failure to provide a lifesaving shock if irregular heart rhythm develops. If you or a loved one has been harmed by a faulty defibrillator, our team of expert solicitors could help you to claim compensation.
We’ve helped our clients to claim compensation after having been fitted with a faulty defibrillator. The types of device that we have dealt with in faulty defibrillator claims include:
- Sprint Fidelis leads (Medtronic)
- Riata and Riata ST leads(St Jude Medical)
- Bipolar QuickSite and QuickFlex (St Jude Medical)
- Ellipse ICD (St. Jude Medical)
