Defective Medical Devices

Medical devices such as hip implants offer a promise of improved quality of life for thousands of Americans who suffer from degenerative diseases. Unfortunately, in some cases consumers serve as guinea pigs for untested devices that fail to work as promised.

Was The Product Safe?

The first principle of medicine is to do no harm. Yet medical device companies often promote new and costly medical devices to improve their bottom line, even when these products carry risks for patients.

The following are examples of types of medical devices that have been known to cause serious injury:

  • Hip implants: Metal-on-metal hip implants such as the DePuy joint replacement system can shed medical debris as they wear, resulting in inflammation and infection in the tissues surrounding the joint. Patients may require follow-up surgery to remove the implant.
  • Knee implants: Defective knee implants place patients at risk of premature wear, loosening of the joint and instability. Rather than improved mobility, some patients suffer disability and pain.
  • Birth control devices: Implanted birth control devices can migrate in the patient's body, resulting in perforations, infections, blood clots and other health problems.

Our lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our seriously injured clients.
