Minnesota Medical Malpractice and Medical Device Claims
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of the negligence of a medical professional (medical malpractice) or from a defective medical device, you may have the right to recover certain damages from the medical provider and their insurance company or from the manufacturer of the defective medical device.
Medical Malpractice Claims
There are few professionals that we place more trust in than the medical professionals we use to treat our various illnesses and ailments. We trust these medical professionals with our lives, and we trust that they will act in a safe and prudent manner. Medical professionals, such as doctors and nurses, have a duty to follow and meet certain standards of care when treating and diagnosing their patients. If a medical professional is negligent, that is, they fail to meet and adhere to the particular standard of care, and you are injured, as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for any damages that result.
Medical Device Claims
Medical devices come in all shapes and forms and have become more prevalent as new technology continues to emerge and develop. One risk of using medical devices is that the device may be defective. A defective medical device is a device that has a design or manufacturing flaw, or includes insufficient warnings and/or instructions. Defective medical devices can expose the user to a variety of unreasonable risks and injuries. Common medical devices that have, in certain situations, caused the user injury include: artificial knees, artificial hips, other artificial joints, pumps, prosthetics, pacemakers, implants, contraceptive devices, etc. If you believe you have suffered injury, as a result of a defective medical device, you may be entitled to recover certain damages for your injuries.
