Medical devices are supposed to improve a patient’s life. Sometimes, though, they cause permanent injury or death.
If you’ve been injured by a medical device and want to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, we can help. We specialize in medical device litigation that holds device manufacturers financially responsible for prioritizing profits over patient safety.
To date, we’ve successfully won hundreds of millions of dollars in damages awarded to plaintiffs for injuries caused by pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices.
Are you suffering from injuries, painful side effects or unplanned surgeries to correct a problem caused by a defective medical device? Has a defective or dangerous medical device caused a loved one to suffer a wrongful death? You might be entitled to recover compensation. Contact us today for a free case evaluation and we’ll help you plan your next move.
Medical device lawsuits have become common.
Medical devices are being manufactured at a rapid rate, which doesn’t allow for proper testing. Millions of unsuspecting patients agree to use harmful medical devices, completely unaware of the dangers.
Doctors usually warn patients about common side effects, and sometimes those side effects are acceptable. However, patients aren’t getting the full picture from their doctors. If patients knew the deeper risks, they probably wouldn’t use the device.
Some of the popular medical devices currently involved in litigation include:
- Composix Kugel Mesh
- Metal-on-metal hip implants
- IVC Filters
- Paragard IUD
- Surgical Staplers
- Transvaginal/Pelvic Mesh (TVM)
- Hernia Mesh
- Breast Implants (BIA-ALCL)
Did you willingly use a harmful medical device? You can still sue.
If you’ve been harmed by a medical device you agreed to try out, it’s not your fault; you can still pursue a lawsuit against your doctor, hospital and even the device manufacturer.
As a patient, you rely on your medical providers to inform you of all the risks involved with all medications and devices they suggest you use. It’s not your fault if you were prescribed a defective medical device or if your surgeon used a dangerous version of a common medical device (such as metal-on-metal hip implants).
