Aortic Balloon Catheter Pumps Recalled

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 7-Jul-2011

Reports say a defective fan may become overheated and shut down the Maquet Datascope Intra-Aortic Balloon Catheter Pump without sounding any warning alarm, and ultimately injuring patients. Due to that possibility, Maquet Datascope Corporation notified customers that representatives would replace power supplies on affected devices.

The Class I recall – the most serious type of recall as judged by the FDA -- involves some models of Intra-Aortic Balloon Pumps manufactured between 2008 and 2010.

For the exact specifications of pumps, Maquet Technical Support Department can be reached at 1.800.777.4222; or through the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program at www.fda.gov/MedWatch/report.htm.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
