        Cardiac Devices

        Cardiac devices such as pacemakers, valves and defibrillator leads

        Heart defibrillators are fitted in patients with heart problems that leave them at risk of sudden death.

        If the person’s heart is not working properly the defibrillator will administer an electrical impulse to stimulate the heart.

        Sometimes defibrillators or their leads are faulty. We have represented a number of clients who have received multiple, unnecessary electric shocks after being fitted with a heart defibrillator. If the lead of a defibrillator fractures, it can send false information to the device, triggering unnecessary electric shocks. Some manufacturers have withdrawn certain models of these devices because of an increased risk of failure.

        Our clients have had to undergo revision defibrillator implantation procedures and have received compensation for the pain and injury caused by extra surgery due to cardiac device negligence, as well as for loss of earnings. Some have even suffered psychiatric effects following the failure of their device.

        We are investigating claims relating to:
        • Medtronic Sprint Fidelis Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator heart leads 6930, 6931, 6948 + 6949

        • Sorin Isoline leads models 2CR5, 2CR6 and 2CT6
