Riata™ Defibrillator Defect Lawyers
Helping Patients Injured by Defibrillator Defects
After they were linked to serious injury and death, two models of Riata™ defibrillator leads were recalled in November of 2011 by manufacturer St. Jude Medical, Inc. Though they have been recalled, tens of thousands of patients across the country may still have Riata™ Leads and Riata™ ST Silicone Endocardial Defibrillation Leads inside their bodies.
If you or a loved one received one of these Riata™ defibrillator leads and suffered serious injury as a result, Crumley Roberts is here to help you. Our firm represents injured patients and families in lawsuits against manufacturers and distributors of defective medical devices, such as Riata™ defibrillator leads. We use our experience as medical device injury attorneys to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
Defective Riata™ defibrillator leads can cause serious injuries, including:
- Electric shock
- Infection around the defibrillator implant site
- Defibrillator migration, where the implant moves in the body
- Perforation of the muscles or other tissue surrounding the heart
- Internal fracture of the defibrillator
