It is important to note that all of Bard Access’s M.R.I. Ports are slightly different than their normal implanted port devices. As the name suggests, M.R.I. Ports are particularly used for patients who regularly take MRI imaging or radiation. Many ports are made of metals such as titanium and stainless steel – materials that can be magnetic, and therefore cause interference in imaging methods such as MRIs. M.R.I. Ports are composed of materials that do not react to magnetic imaging procedures, such as plastic.
Unfortunately, although Bard M.R.I. Ports are different from regular Bard implanted port devices, they share some of the higher risks and complications.

It is crucial to seek legal representation if you have been seriously injured by a Bard implanted port device and want to pursue a legal claim. If you have suffered serious complications, it can be difficult to take care of the legal proceedings without some assistance – and even then, without professional legal help, building a case can be incredibly stressful and difficult. A Bard M.R.I. port injury lawyer can help you with all of the relevant legal work on your behalf so that you can focus on healing and recovery.
Additionally, lawsuits for dangerous or defective medical devices can be incredibly difficult to win without legal experience. The amount of evidence required to build a strong case can be insurmountable without a lawyer. Additionally, going up against a medical manufacturer with a large team of corporate lawyers can be intimidating. An attorney can help even the odds, ensuring you have a chance against strong opposing representation.
