New York Guidant Defibrillator Attorneys

Guidant ® defibrillators are small computer devices implanted into the body to regulate heart rate and other heart functions in persons who have heart disease.
New York Guidant defibrillators accident attorneys

On June 17, 2005, Guidant Corporation issued a defibrillator recall for cardiac defibrillators implanted in 50,000 patients around the world due to potentially fatal malfunctions of the devices. There are approximately 38,000 patients in the United States with Guidant brand defibrillators, which reports indicate have failed 45 times and are responsible for at least two deaths since May 30, 2005.

Critical wiring errors in Guidant defibrillators may cause a short circuit which can overload their delicate wiring, rendering them inoperable.

Those at the greatest risk should immediately consult their doctors and continue to have checkups every three months to ensure that the devices are still working properly.

The Food and Drug Administration released a statement stating that they did not require Guidant to recall its products, but that they nevertheless supported the decision to address such serious allegations. The fact that this issue was finally addressed is of small comfort to the 50,000 people who continue to live in constant fear that their life-saving medical equipment may fail them when they need it the most.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
