Getting Compensation for Defective Medical Devices
Mistakes happen, but when you are the manufacturer of a medical device, you need to find your mistakes before they become a source of serious injury to patients. At Girardi | Keese, we hold manufacturers accountable when they create defective medical devices that harm individuals.
Product defects are usually the result of rushing a product to market without careful product design as well as testing the way it will be used and the individual component parts that go into the product. Our attorneys have extensive experience investigating defective medical devices and taking cases to court.
Hip replacements cause extra surgery; Ear implants cause deafness.
Over the past four decades, our lawyers have investigated a number of unsafe medical devices. Two current examples stand out:
- Cochlear ear implants with defective seals have caused profound deafness in children.
- The DePuy ASR Hip Implant has been recalled by Johnson & Johnson and many recipients of the implant live in pain and may have to undergo explantation of the device.
Girardi | Keese attorneys have the medical knowledge and the resources to hold defective medical device manufacturers financially responsible for the damage they have caused. Contact us to discuss your defective medical device case. We represent clients in California and nationwide.
