Guidant Settles Lawsuit Over Defibrillator

Comments Off

Recently, the Guidant Corporation settled a lawsuit over one of its cardiac defibrillators. The fraud suit was filed in Texas, and trial was scheduled to start on September 18, 2006. In the lawsuit, plaintiffs Beatrice Hinojosa and Louis Motal claimed that Guidant failed to warn them about the risk of failure for their implanted heart devices. In 2005, Guidant recalled thousands of its defibrillators because of defects.
