When medical equipment doesn’t function properly, patients bear the brunt of the blow. Consider a patient who is waiting on the results of her diagnostic imaging tests to see if she needs chemotherapy or a patient who needs a pacemaker to keep his heart beating. When medical devices fail, it can be life-threatening to the patient.
When injury or tragedy strikes in association with your medical care, it can be difficult or even impossible to understand the “why.” Sometimes, poor outcomes are simply a reality of medicine.

Sometimes, they are caused by poor manufacturing, failure to warn, or defects in design. Patients who endure preventable injuries at the hands of a doctor or hospital who failed to adhere to the accepted standard of care may have the right to file a medical malpractice claim to pursue compensation for their injuries.
