Ohio product liability lawyer and medical device defect attorney reviews injury claims and lawsuits involving defective catheters for plaintiffs nationwide


Medical device manufacturers and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have both initiated recalls for defective catheters after medical reports of serious health complications linked to catheter defect and device failure.

Following injury, plaintiffs and product liability attorneys have filed claims against device manufacturers for alleged negligence, improper pre-market testing, and distributing unsafe medical devices.

Defective catheters have been recalled for separation risks, breakage, and perforating blood vessels, leading to serious injury and death. Catheters are most commonly recalled after causing complications during medical procedures like administering medication, injecting contrast dye, and removing blood clots.

When a catheter is defective, it may not function as intended, and may not drain fluids as designed, causing serious health problems. Broken catheters or separating catheters can lead to fragments of the device left in a patient’s body or bloodstream.
