Claiming compensation for a faulty pacemaker

Every year some people have a pacemaker fitted to provide them with better health. There can be a variety of reasons why someone might need a pacemaker. For example they may be suffering from heart failure. In contrast they might have too fast a heartbeat which does not respond to medication to slow it down.

The good news is that the vast majority of people who have one fitted experience far fewer symptoms once it is in place compared to how they felt before. In some cases they may feel as if they have a new lease on life. It is thankfully exceptionally rare for serious problems to occur with a pacemaker; however as with all medical equipment of a similar nature, there is the potential that something could go wrong.

Even in this situation a faulty pacemaker does not necessarily mean it will stop working altogether. However, if you experience any symptoms you would expect your pacemaker to be checked to determine whether any changes or alterations need to be made. If so, this can get things back to normal again so you feel fitter and healthier, rather than feeling ill. It is important to discuss any symptoms or worries you have with your GP or specialist.

How could a faulty pacemaker affect your life?

A faulty pacemaker could produce many symptoms. For example you might feel dizzy and light-headed, possibly on a regular basis. Palpitations are also quite common if it malfunctions. If you should experience anything like this you should seek advice as quickly as possible. Sometimes a series of tests will be done to determine if there is an issue. In cases where people have not received appropriate care or advice they have sometimes later gone through the process of claiming compensation for a faulty pacemaker.
