Defective Drugs & Medical Devices

Helping Clients Injured by Negligence in the Medical Device and Drug Industries

Improvements in technology have made it possible for people to deal with illness and disability in ways never before imagined. Advances in pharmacology have made life easier for millions of patients. When a medical device or drug has a defect that injures or kills users, however, the manufacturer should be held accountable.

At Girardi | Keese Link to Firm Overview, our attorneys help clients injured by defective medical devices and dangerous drugs. This is a complex area of product liability law; our lawyers have the medical, technical and legal knowledge to build strong cases that seek full compensation for clients. Contact us to learn how we can help you.

Our cases include:

  • Defective medical devices: We have handled cases involving hip replacements and implants, ear implants, pain patches and other medical devices.
  • Defective drugs: Our cases involve a wide range of drugs that were rushed to market too quickly and caused illness, injury or death to patients.

Our clients are people who suffered injuries or illnesses through no fault of their own. Rather, the negligence of medical device manufacturers or multinational pharmaceutical companies caused their injuries. Our attorneys draw upon 40 years of experience to seek justice and have obtained significant financial awards and settlements on behalf of injured clients.
