Why File a Claim?
When you or a loved one are injured during a medical procedure, it can have lasting consequences on nearly all aspects of your lives. Defective medical products can directly impact your health, causing infection, organ failure, or even death. Malfunctioning pacemakers, implants, and other devices can leave you unable to work, visit family, or even walk around the house. As a result, it can not only impact your income, but can also significantly undermine your quality of life.
If you have suffered emotionally, physically, or financially due to a defective medical device, you may be entitled to compensation. Potential compensation may include payment for:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Cost of disability
- Loss of consortium
Hiring a lawyer to represent your claim is the best method of protection.
Who Can be Held Responsible?
There are many ways a medical device can become defective: if it is poorly designed, badly manufactured, or inaccurately marketed. Each step of the process is essential to ensuring that the final product is safe for patients.
Over the decades, we have developed extensive knowledge, resources, and strategies to help our clients persevere over manufacturing companies who have neglected their responsibility to provide safe products.
The designer must make sure that the device is adequately tested and regulated before going to consumers. The manufacturer must make sure that they use the most appropriate materials and that no safety corners are cut to save money in production. The marketer must make sure that the the device's function is clear and that it is targeted at the right audience. If any part of this process is done poorly, it can lead to life-altering or ending consequences. The defendant held responsible may consequently change from case to case.
