Faulty Insulin Pump

The advancement of medical equipment and devices are some of the most remarkable breakthroughs in medicine and technology. Some of these products are the difference between life and death for some individuals, whereas others allow someone with a severe condition to live a normal life that they wouldn’t have been able to previously. The medical industry heavily regulates the manufacturing process of these products for this very reason, as any issues or defects within the product can seriously jeopardize the health and wellbeing of the user. Unfortunately, some dangerous products slip through the cracks despite heavy regulation, which is the case with Medtronic Devices, the manufacturer of insulin pumps that have endangered the life of their customer base. 

According to reports, Medtronic Device’s MiniMed 600 series insulin pumps contain a faulty retainer ring that fails to lock the insulin cartridge into place. Without the lock, the insulin cartridge can shift during operation, causing the device to either overdeliver insulin or barely deliver anything. The defect introduces a risk of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, both of which are potentially life-threatening for someone who lives with diabetes. The FDA has since issued a Class 1 recall, the most serious of recalls. Still, with an alarming amount of injuries and fatalities, it’s evident that someone has to answer for the harm endured by Medtronic Device’s innocent customer base. 

Product liability laws apply to medical equipment, too, and anyone injured by one of these devices can potentially recover damages through a lawsuit. Although a lawsuit can’t reverse the harm you’ve experienced, it can allow you the financial ability to pay off your expenses and move on from the incident. Fortunately for you, you’re already on the webpage of America’s largest personal injury firm, and we’re uniquely capable of helping any victim of a negligent manufacturer fight back and hold them accountable. If you or someone close to you was harmed or lost their life because of a Medtronic Device’s product or any other faulty insulin pump, our attorneys are ready and eager to help you recover what you’re entitled to, all for no out-of-pocket costs.

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • Which Insulin Pump Products Were Recalled?

    Medtronic Device’s MiniMed 600 series insulin pumps were recalled after reports of faulty retainer rings that prevent the insulin cartridge from locking into place. Once the user attempts to use the faulty device, it will malfunction and either deliver too little insulin or an unnecessary amount, which can be life-threatening. The recall affects the MiniMed 600 series of devices, as well as:

    • MiniMed™ 530G (551/751)
    • MiniMed™ Paradigm Revel™ (523/723)
    • MiniMed Paradigm™ 522/722
    • MiniMed Paradigm™ 515/715

    Over 400,000 devices have been recalled already, but there are likely more that still remain in the homes of unsuspecting consumers. These products were sold as early as May of 2015, and, with people aged seven or older eligible to use these insulin pumps, there’s an elevated risk of harm. Medtronic Devices has launched a web page where users can find their device's serial number, compare it to the list of affected products through their accounts, and opt in to receiving a repair for their defective insulin pumps. Anyone who owns one of these devices should exhibit caution and avoid use until you’ve received a repair or found a safer alternative to use.

  • How Dangerous Are Faulty Insulin Pumps?

    The recalled insulin pumps contain a defect that prevents the user’s insulin cartridge from locking in the device, causing the pump to administer an incorrect amount of insulin. If the defective retainer ring breaks or becomes detached at any point while you’re using the product, and you attempt to put the reservoir back into the pump while it’s connected to your body, the pump may deliver a dangerous and potentially deadly amount of insulin. The retainer ring may also lock improperly during use, preventing the pump from delivering insulin into the body and putting the user at risk of hyperglycemia. All of these situations can occur without the user’s knowledge, and if they’re unable to get help, it could result in a hospital trip or worse. 

  • What Should I Do if I’m Injured by a Faulty Insulin Pump?

    Those who own any of the previously mentioned MiniMed insulin pumps should check the manufacturer’s webpage to check if their device was subject to recall. If you find that your product is defective, you can contact the manufacturer through their website for a replacement or repair. You should also exhibit caution when using your device, even after the repair, as you can prevent a possible hospital trip by ensuring your device is working properly each time you use it.

    Unfortunately, there have already been numerous injury cases, and despite Medtronic Device’s attempt to fix the issue, there could be more in the future. If you find yourself dealing with the health consequences of a faulty insulin pump, we urge you to contact an attorney to help advocate for your situation. There’s no reason that you should shoulder the burden of a negligent manufacturer’s actions. Teaming up with a skilled attorney can give you the best possible chance of recovering the damages you sustained and, most importantly, holding the negligent organization accountable for their injustice. Although a lawsuit can’t reverse the past, they shouldn’t get away with endangering the lives of their customer base, nor should you have to pay for the damage out of your own pocket. Our product liability attorneys have the necessary experience, knowledge, and resources behind them to help you in your legal challenge.

    In the most difficult moments of your life, Morgan & Morgan has your back. Medtronic Device should have enforced stronger safety regulations within their manufacturing process to ensure that every one of their customers receives a product that’s safe for its intended purpose. Instead, they chose to endanger the lives of innocent consumers who rely on their products for their health, which is nothing short of an unacceptable offense. Our product liability attorneys understand how important it is for you to receive the compensation necessary to escape from the financial consequences of your situation, which is why we’re prepared to fight tirelessly on your behalf.
