Respiratory Devices

Injured After a Ventilator or Respiratory Device Failed?

Whether you regularly use an oxygen tank, inhaler or other respiratory device or are undergoing surgery and have been hooked up to a ventilator, you trust that these devices will allow you to keep breathing.

But sometimes these devices are poorly made or designed. When a ventilator malfunctions, it can result in a false alarm, which causes the safety and ventilation valves to open, stopping the flow of air to the patient. Being deprived of breath can result in permanent disability or death. Malfunctioning inhalers fail to provide the proper dose of medicine needed — especially critical in the middle of an asthma attack — and can result in serious health consequences.

If you or a loved one has been injured after a ventilator or inhaler failed or after using another respiratory device, we can help.
