Medical Device Claims
Medical Product Liability Attorney • Free Consultations Available
Although medical devices have revolutionized health care, when they are defective these devices can have disastrous consequences. If a medical device manufacturer designs and sells a defective medical device, they end up injuring patients they are supposed to help.
Furthermore, instead of recalling a faulty device, some manufacturers will try to cover up the problem and deny anything is wrong with their device. When the product remains on the shelves of medical supply stores and in hospitals, more people will inevitably suffer. It is then the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) responsibility to issue a product recall to remove that device from the marketplace. Sadly, this step is often the last resort, occurring after hundreds or thousands of consumers become injured from a medical device.
If you or a loved one have experienced physical, emotional or financial injury from a defective medical device, you may be entitled to compensation for your loss.
Medical devices are created with the intention of giving patients an improved life. Although the motives behind their development are usually positive, medical and surgical devices are often rushed to market without proper testing or quality assurance for the sake of profit. People hoping to reap the benefits of increased technology in the healthcare industry sometimes endure painful and severe side effects accompanying the malfunction of these medical devices.
