Implanted Defibrillators May Be Overused, Unneeded

Nearly one-fifth of patients receiving Implanted Defibrillators are having the implants done outside guidelines for their use, reports say. Not only are the devices unnecessary, in some cases patients have a higher risk of death than individuals who fit the criteria for receiving an implanted defibrillator, reports say.

The devices provide an electrical shock to an erratically beating heart, but researchers found that many patients were either recent heart attack victims or newly-diagnosed heart failure patients, reports say. The risk of any post-procedure complications in those patients was reportedly higher.

  1. 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.
