St. Jude Pacemaker Recall
Louisville Injury Attorneys for Defective Pacemaker Lawsuits
Pacemakers perform an essential function for people with arrhythmias, or irregular heartbeats. They control abnormal heart rhythms by delivering electrical pulses that actually help it pump correctly. Patients with pacemakers rely on these lifesaving devices, making any type of defect potentially disastrous.
Sam Aguiar Injury Lawyers is currently investigating cases involving defective pacemakers manufactured by St. Jude Medical Inc. prior to May of 2015. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recalled approximately 400,000 of these devices after discovering that the pacemakers may be prone to short circuiting. Battery failure can occur within as little as 24 hours of a short circuit, giving patients little time to seek medical attention and placing their lives at risk.
