Pursuing Justice for Georgians Injured by Dangerous Medical Devices
If you were harmed by a dangerous medical device, you deserve justice. The insurance company may try to limit or deny your claim or say you used the product incorrectly. We are familiar with the tactics insurance providers use to not compensate injury victims. If you have our firm on your side, you can rest assured we will take an aggressive stance against the insurance companies to pursue the full compensation you deserve.
Manufacturers of medical devices sometimes offer promises about their products that don’t live up to the reality. Makers of items such as hip implants or hernia patches may promise an improved quality of life for the patient. Unfortunately, their products sometimes do the opposite. Patients have been harmed or even have died as a result of defective medical products.
Examples of Potentially Dangerous Medical Devices
A few products that have been linked to patient injury include the ASR hip replacement devices made by DePuy, the Stryker Corporation’s Trident PSL and Hemispherical Acetabular Cups used in hip replacement implants and the Kugel Mesh hernia patch.
In some cases, the manufacturer knew about problems but failed to disclose the facts to consumers. Patients have a right to know everything about the medical devices they use. If a manufacturer, doctor or hospital fails to adequately disclose information, they may be liable for injuries.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is in charge of protecting the public from defective or dangerous medical devices. Sometimes, however, the FDA puts a product on a “fast track” and approves it quickly.
If you or a loved one was harmed due to a defective product, don’t hesitate to contact an experienced dangerous medical device attorney who can explain your rights.
