Attorneys across the country are investigating allegations that the following products suffer from design and/or manufacturing defects or weren’t sold with adequate warnings. When a medical device company fails to make sure its products are free from defects, those injured as a result may be able to sue. It’s important to note that most lawsuits involving medical devices aren’t class actions, but rather individual lawsuits seeking compensation (medical bills, physical pain, etc.) specific to the patient’s injuries. (You can find out why most cases involving medical devices aren’t class actions by reading this article.)
