Defective Medical Device Lawyer

It is an unfortunate truth that defective medical devices are pushed to the market, leaving the users unaware of the real dangers the device poses to them. In an effort to increase their profits, oftentimes manufacturers will not adequately test products for present or long-term problems, or they will fail to warm consumers and healthcare providers of the dangers. The result? Dangerous devices on the market being used my unknowing patients, just waiting to be injured.

It is our job to give those victims a voice and to get them the compensation they deserve for their injuries. In fact, we do more than that; we also dedicate much of our time to ensuring these products are promptly removed from the market to save others from the pain and suffering of the dangerous devices. Injuries that result from defective products can result in physical, emotional, and financial damages to the victim and his or her family. Whether the injury was due to improper labeling, a design defect, or a manufacturing issue, we will pursue justice and investigate your case while you recover.

Common product defects

  • Manufacturer defects – also referred to as unplanned defects, the product has an abnormality that arose during manufacturing.
  • Marketing defects – cover the defects or flaws during the marketing of the product. This includes improper labeling, insufficient instructions, or inadequate safety warnings.

Defective medical devices on the market

When consumers see FDA approval on products and devices, they feel a sense of security, and ideally, they should. The FDA’s job is to protect consumers from any dangerous health hazards, such as defective medical devices.

While progressive healthcare advances have helped and have saved many sick and injured people, unfortunately because of the FDA’s fast-tracked approval process, intending to push helpful devices to the market to treat time-sensitive ailments, what’s actually happening is that dangerous products are being pushed through as well. Unfortunately, this is at the sometimes deadly cost of the unknowing consumer.

It’s imperative that these devices are pulled from the market and that those injured from the defective products are compensated fully for their medical bills, pain, suffering, and ongoing healthcare treatments.
