DEFECTIVE PRODUCT CLAIMS
We have grown to trust medical devices that help us recover from injury, correct a medical condition, or improve our quality of life due to aging or illness.
Whether artificial joints, pacemakers or stents, we trust the safety of these products. When things go wrong and a device fails or stops functioning, the damage from the inside may be hard to determine and solve, while a patient suffers pain, additional medical challenges or corrective surgery. In these cases, a patient risks additional or permanent damage, additional long-term medical expenses, possible loss of income or quality of life.
Medical devices and drugs are required to go through exhaustive review for potential danger. Sometimes a maker may knowingly release a product that hasn’t been tested properly, is known to cause health problems, or has simply not been tested correctly. Consumers are harmed as a result.
No doubt you’ve seen TV and internet ads for victims of a defective medical device or a dangerous drug. These kind of cases fall into the legal category of a Mass Tort Action. While similar to a class action lawsuit, each claim is individually presented.
These types of claims and cases are complex and can take years to bring to a settlement. Adding to the confusion for clients is the fact prosecution may take place in another jurisdiction or state. Having a local lawyer who understands how these claims work and how to locate the most favorable jurisdiction for the claim can make a big difference in the compensation recovered.
The BRW attorney team has been assisting victims of defective medical devices and dangerous drugs for over twenty years. Before you sell your claim or case out to a TV advertisement, give our office a call for a free consultation.
