Fresno Medical Equipment Failure Attorney

Faulty Medical Devices and Equipment

When medical equipment malfunctions or fails, it can post serious health risks for patients. For example, if an IV pump has a faulty valve, it could cause too much medication to be administered to the patient and a subsequent overdose. Medical equipment failure is often a result of human error or manufacturing defects and falls under the category of medical malpractice. Common types of medical equipment failure concern often concern equipment such as:

  • Anesthetic machines
  • Blood pressure equipment
  • Cancer diagnostic equipment
  • Heart defibrillators
  • Insulin pens 
  • IV pumps
  • Pacemakers
  • Patient monitoring or breathing devices
  • Wheelchairs
  • X-ray equipment

If the doctor or hospital knew that the medical equipment was defective or malfunction or if they knew the product had been recalled, or if the doctor or medical staff used the equipment improperly, they might be held liable for any injuries you or a loved one suffered as a result of their medical negligence.
