Defective Medical Device Injuries And Recalls

Medical devices are increasingly common in the treatment of medical conditions such as heart problems, hernias and bladder incontinence. However, thousands of Americans die or suffer serious complications as a result of these defective medical devices. Even after a medical device is approved by the FDA, possible side effects may still be unknown to the general public, leaving millions of patients susceptible to serious injury or death.

Medical devices that can cause serious injury include defibrillators, contraceptive devices, and surgical tools, such as the transvaginal mesh. If you have been injured by any of these defective products, you may be eligible for a product liability lawsuit.
