It’s hard to say without more details, but problems with the software a medical device uses would likely be treated in the same way as a problem with the device itself. In fact, a recent FDA study shows that almost a quarter of the medical devices that are recalled each year are recalled because of problems with the software. The FDA has even recently said it plans to implement new technologies that make it easier to spot potential problems and will delay medical device companies that are releasing their products with software that is unsafe, poorly written, poorly tested, or susceptible to cyber attacks.
If you have already suffered an injury from a defective medical device or associated software concerns, then you may be able to seek compensation for the medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering you have been put through. Although it is impossible to determine if you have a case without more information about your personal experiences with the device or software, you may have the option of pursuing either a personal lawsuit against the company or joining a medical device class action in Illinois.
