Invacare Attorneys Answer Wheelchair Defect FAQs

Invacare is one of the largest manufacturers of homecare medical products such as wheelchairs, bariatric equipment, respiratory products, and disability scooters. Unfortunately, some of Invacare’s most popular products have been linked to serious medical complications. Their motorized wheelchairs are particularly dangerous, and have been named in wrongful death claims.

If you have been hurt by one of Invacare’s potentially defective and dangerous devices, it may be in your best interest to explore your legal rights and options.

Contact an Invacare lawyer at Farah & Farah (904) 263-4610 to discuss your situation.

Q: What is Product Liability?

A: Manufacturers of defective products can be held accountable for the injuries and damages their products cause. When a medical device is defective, such as an Invacare Corp motorized wheelchair, it can cause serious harm. Victims and their families can then pursue compensation for their losses by filing a product liability claim against the manufacturer.

Q: What Makes Invacare Motorized Wheelchairs So Dangerous?

A: Invacare is the world’s largest manufacturer of battery-powered wheelchairs. Since April 2000, Invacare has recalled its wheelchairs because of a defect that causes the device to catch fire. Since patients who need a wheelchair are either immobile or at least partially disabled, they are often unable to exit the chair when it catches on fire. Victims have reported severe burn injuries. Several patients have even died after their wheelchair caught fire.

Q: What Can I Do if My Loved One Died While Using an Invacare Wheelchair?

A: The family of an individual who has been killed by a defective medical device such as an Invacare wheelchair can file a wrongful death claim against the product manufacturer. In a wrongful death suit, the family will have to prove that the device was defective, and that defect directly contributed to the victim’s death.

Q: Is Invacare the Only Company Facing Wrongful Death Lawsuits for Motorized Wheelchairs?

A: No. Other manufacturers including Pride Mobility Products have been named in similar lawsuits. An investigation is needed any time a wheelchair catches fire, whether it is manufactured by Invacare or a lesser-known brand.

Q: What Should I Do if I’ve Gotten Injured?

A: Seek out medical attention right away. You should also preserve the wheelchair and the clothes you were wearing for a complete inspection. Then, you should research your legal options. You may be able to pursue compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and other related damages.

Q: What Should I Do if My Loved One Died in a Wheelchair Fire?

A:Make sure to preserve the wheelchair for a complete inspection, and keep records of the losses you’ve suffered since the accident. A wrongful death claim against a negligent product manufacturer can result in financial support for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost future wages, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and other related damages.
