Defective Medical Devices
Medical Injury Lawyer
When it comes to medical devices, the design and manufacturing processes are absolutely crucial. A single oversight may lead to a defective medical device that causes serious injuries. If manufacturers do not exercise due diligence in producing medical products that are free from defects, safe to use and proven through extensive testing, patients suffer the consequences. In these situations, an injured patient may be able to take legal action and seek financial compensation for the injuries he or she has sustained.

Defective Medical Devices May Cause Serious Injuries
Our law firm handles claims and lawsuits related to defective medical devices and dangerous drugs throughout the U.S. The primary types of cases we handle for defective medical devices are:
Defective Insulin Pumps

DePuy Hip Implants
Following evidence that certain hip implant models were causing serious side effects that required additional surgery to remove the defective devices, DePuy Orthopedics has recalled two of its hip replacement devices. If you received a defective
DePuy hip implant, you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
Manufactured by Bayer pharmaceuticals, Mirena is a long-term contraceptive system which is implanted into the uterus. The T-shaped device slowly releases from its steroid reserve over time and has been shown to be effective in preventing pregnancy; however, it increase the risk of PID, ovarian cysts, irregular bleeding, complete loss of a menstrual period, as well as ectopic and intrauterine pregnancies.
Transvaginal mesh is a type of surgical mesh, similar to a woven fabric, that is implanted in the vagina to reinforce the vaginal wall and treat bladder prolapse, pelvic prolapse and similar problems. Unfortunately, transvaginal mesh has been linked to side effects such as erosion, bleeding and organ perforation.
