Faulty St. Jude Implantable Defibrillators

Our Defective Medical Device Attorneys in Birmingham Can Fight for You

St. Jude has issued a number of recalls for its implantable defibrillator devices after patients experienced rapid battery failure and/or premature battery depletion. Despite this recall, the company admitted to continuing to sell older units that were still in stock for 17 months after design improvements were completed. The unexpected loss of battery life can prove serious and life-threatening for individuals who have the device, as it is no longer able to deliver life-saving shocks once power is lost.

If you have suffered harm, or have had a loved one die as a result of a defective St. Jude implantable defibrillator, reach out to our defective medical device attorneys for compassionate legal assistance and outstanding representation. Our firm is here to help you fight for your rights as we strive to hold the negligent parties accountable for your pain and suffering.

Common Injuries Associated with Defective St. Jude Defibrillators

St. Jude Medical implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (CRT-Ds) are used to regulate heart rhythms in patients with various heart-related issues. The primary purpose of these devices is to regulate slow heart rhythms and provide an electric shock that slows dangerously fast heartbeats. In defective devices, a drained or faulty battery can cause serious complications.

Common injuries associated with defective St. Jude implantable defibrillators include:

  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Heart “fluttering”
  • Chest pain
  • Fatigue
  • Fainting
  • Sudden, unexplained weakness
  • Perspiration
  • Death

Malfunctioning devices can necessitate surgery, replacement, and may even lead to death if left unaddressed.
