Defective Medical Devices

Injuries caused by defective medical devices are especially debilitating. Instead of fixing the medical problem, they make the situation worse, sometimes requiring additional surgeries. The most unfortunate fact of defective medical devices is that the damage they cause is often permanent and irreversible.

Have You Been Injured By A Medical Product?

The list of defective medical devices increases annually. Our firm is currently investigating injury and wrongful death claims involving:

  • DePuy ASR hip devices
  • DePuy and Zimmer knee implants
  • Vaginal mesh implants
  • Defibrillators and pacemakers
  • Stents
  • Infusion pumps

Injuries from these types of devices can range from broken bones to organ damage, infection and persistent pain. In some cases, removing the device may not correct the problem, leaving the patient with permanent injuries and/or disability.

Medical devices are sometimes rushed to market without undergoing sufficient testing. They may even receive FDA approval despite the lack of testing. Physicians prescribe the use of these devices, relying on the FDA’s approval as their guidelines, especially when a product is new. Our objective is to hold negligent device manufacturers liable.
