Defective Medical Devices Attorney
Defective medical devices cause catastrophic injuries to people throughout California and the nation every year. People of all ages who have suffered injuries, knee and hip degeneration, shoulder problems, who have heart defects, and who have many other types of medical challenges benefit from these devices. But many people suffer unnecessarily after having such devices implanted. Our attorneys have been representing clients injured by defective medical drugs and devices for decades. If you believe that you have been the victim of such an injury, call on us to answer your questions and represent you against the corporations who may have caused you harm.
Injuries may lead to the need for additional surgery and hospitalization, excruciating pain, and, in some cases, may result in wrongful death. When a medical device is not manufactured correctly, is not adequately tested or is not appropriately labeled, the manufacturer must be held accountable. Over the last several decades, prosthetic devices, surgical implants, hearing aids, pacemakers, insulin pumps and other devices have been developed that have improved people's lives. But if your life has been diminished as the result of a defective medical device, you need a committed and proven legal ally on your side.
Failed Medical Devices
Not only can hip and knee replacements fail and lead to falls, they can also lead to blood poisoning, infection, and other unforeseen side effects. If the materials that such a device was made from are unsafe, the side effects can be torturous. If the materials in the device grate against each other, unsafe materials may be released into your blood. You may be entitled to compensation for these and other injuries.
Medical professionals such as nurses and doctors are typically not to blame for medical device failure. Instead, medical device manufacturers may have caused your injuries because they failed to prioritize safety. No matter the medical device that has caused harm or even wrongful death in your family, our law firm is equipped to help you obtain justice.
In such cases, your attorney must rely on medical professionals, medical device engineers and other experts who can help us determine the cause of your injuries. We have long-standing relationships with many such experts who will help us determine liability. We will arrange and present the evidence in a way that maximizes your chances of getting compensation for your injuries. If a settlement cannot be reached, we will use all of our resources and our decades of success to pursue the justice that you deserve.
Class Actions and Medical Device Failure
If you have been injured, it is likely that you are not alone. If there are a large number of injured plaintiffs, you may be able to join or begin a class action lawsuit that may benefit you and other injured people. For the last several decades we have represented countless people in class action lawsuits. Whether you are suing as an individual or as a member of a class, we have the resources and the experience to represent you.
In some of the most complex legal challenges, our clients have emerged victorious. In defective drug cases and medical device lawsuits, we have been particularly successful. When we represent you in an individual lawsuit or as a member of a class action, we are able to convey legally complex details in a clear and straightforward way. The ability to communicate the details of a case in a timely and transparent way is one reason that we receive so many referrals from former clients. We communicate consistently and always try to make sure our clients have peace of mind.
