Our Indianapolis defective medical device lawyers represent clients who have experienced complications related to all types of medical devices. This includes everything from equipment operated by specialists in medical facilities to artificial joint replacements implanted during surgical procedures. All of these devices have two things in common: (i) they are intended to improve patients’ health; and (ii) when designed, manufactured, or used improperly, they have the potential to cause serious injury or death.

If you are concerned about a possible medical device complication, there are several steps you can take to help protect your legal rights:
- See a doctor promptly (contact us if you would like a referral)
- Keep the device and any packaging (if you have it)
- Collect copies of your medical bills, statements of benefits, receipts, and any other documentation relating to your treatment or your purchase of the device
- Start keeping a log of your condition’s impact on your life (including days you miss from work, hours spent at your doctor’s office or the hospital, and your daily pain levels and limitations)
- Consult with an experienced local attorney about filing a claim for financial compensation (you will want an attorney who has experience in product liability and medical malpractice claims)
Yes, while you can certainly check to see if your device has been recalled, a recall is not a necessary precursor to filing a claim for financial compensation.
