DEFECTIVE MEDICAL DEVICES
When a medical device fails or is recalled because it is defective, people often wonder whether the doctor who recommended it knew it was unsafe or why the manufacturer continued to sell the defective product. All too often, manufacturers do know (or should know) their products are dangerous long before they are taken off the shelf. Sometimes, doctors also recommend devices for the wrong application, or without realizing they are dangerous.
At Schroeter Goldmark & Bender, we are not afraid to take on companies that sell dangerous products to the public. We have experience in these cases, and know how to handle them in the way that is best for the client, whether that is as part of a class action or as an individual claim. We also know how to handle complicated product cases where there is also a potential claim of negligence against one or more health care providers.
When a medical device is recalled, patients may face additional surgery to remove implanted devices. It is helpful to talk to a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible to gauge the full extent of potential damages.
