Injured by a Defective Catheter or Related Medical Device?

Millions of people each year use catheters to drain fluids or urine, to administer medicine like insulin, to receive oxygen through breathing tubes and to measure pressure in the heart and veins. Users trust that when they insert a catheter tube into their body, it will work properly.

But sometimes these devices are poorly made or designed. When catheters are defective, they may not function properly and not drain fluids or administer medication as designed, causing serious health problems. When catheters are inserted or used improperly, they can be stuck in the body, causing cuts, bruises, scars and bleeding.

If you or a loved one has been injured after using a catheter to administer or drain fluids to and from your body, or after a catheter was used on you during surgery, we can help.
