Medical Device Manufacturer Knowingly Sells Dangerous Blood Filters to Innocent Patients
People entrust implanted medical devices to make their lives better and keep them healthy. Although it is understandable that medical devices may sometimes fail, it is unconscionable to think a medical device manufacturer would knowingly enable inherently dangerous medical devices to be implanted into patients. C.R. Bard has put hundreds of thousands of patients at risk with their G2 and G2 Express blood clot filters.
The G2 Express devices were put on the market after the G2 devices were known to cause deaths to several patients in Florida. However, the G2 Express was nearly identical to its predecessor and confidential documents from the company show that Bard knew that the G2 Expresses were as dangerous as the G2 units. Defective medical device attorneys say that people in the Boca Raton area are particularly at risk for having one of these faulty implants due to the local demographics.
The executives at Bard made a profit-driven decision to endanger people’s lives in order to maintain their bottom lines. They deserve to be held financially responsible for all of the victims they have put at severe risk and harmed. According to Boca Raton defective medical device attorneys, punitive damages are more likely to be applicable in cases like this where a business knowingly risks peoples’ lives. Bard has some accountability owed towards every one of the more than 160,000 people that received one of the G2 Express devices.
