Guidant defibrillators have been the causeof many innocent victims serious health problems and even death. A recent article discusses the new development in these product liability lawsuits.
As is pointed out in this article the manufacturers of the defibrillators were more interested in profits than in those who were trusting them with their lives.
The Guidant story is a sorry example of a corporation seemingly overtaken by greed, growth and a bottom-line mentality at the expense of thousands of Americans believing that their Guidant defibrillator, or pacemaker, would be their ticket to better health, rather than a threat to their well being.
It is expected that more lawsuits will follow.
