People may wonder why there are even defibrillator lawsuits being launched in the first place. Some people are unaware of the problems associated with these cardiac devices. It was not mandatory that this company recall all of the defective products so why are people now filing suits? The problem with the company and the reason for the suits is that it is felt that this company showed clear neglect for their products and the patients that they serve. It was found that even though this company knew there products were defective they continued to promote and sell the products anyway without any regard for the problems they may cause.
It has been asserted that the executives of the Guidant Company made no move to alert doctors and patients of the problems that have been discovered.

The second question to ask yourself; were you injured by the implanted defibrillator? If you have been injured by or if your defibrillator has malfunctioned in some way you are more likely to have a valid claim.
