Heart Devices

Injured by a Defective Heart Stent or Malfunctioning Pacemaker or Defibrillator?

For most people, deciding to have a stent, pacemaker, defibrillator or artificial heart valve or pump implanted is not really a choice. When it comes to keeping your heart in proper working order, it usually is a matter of life and death.

But complications arise when these devices are poorly designed or made. Malfunctioning pacemakers and defective defibrillators can short-circuit or leads can fracture, failing to deliver a shock to the heart when needed or transmitting electrical impulses at the wrong time. Defective stents can damage arterial walls and form blood clots.

If you or a loved one has received a heart device implant and experiences complications and increased pain, the device may be defective. We can help. At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., our attorneys will represent patients who have been harmed by defective drug-eluting stents (DES), heart valves, pacemakers and defibrillators. We work with an experienced team in bringing product liability lawsuits in courts throughout New York State.
