Medical equipment failure, which is a form of medical malpractice, is often the result of manufacturing defects or human error. Consequently, if you or a loved one has suffered serious injury or death as a result of equipment failure, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for your injuries. With an equipment failure lawsuit, an experienced lawyer may be able to help you recover compensation for:

  • medical bills
  • pain and suffering
  • lost income
  • and more

Types of Equipment Failures

Various types of equipment failure pose a risk of serious injury or death. For instance, heart defibrillators with dead batteries can cause a patient to go into cardiac arrest and defective IV pumps can cause too much medication to be administered to a patient over a short time period, leading to overdose. Other medical equipment that may fail or be used improperly by medical care professionals, exposing patients to a heightened risk of serious injury include:

  • anesthetic machines

  • cancer diagnostic equipment
