We all appreciate advanced medical technology that makes new treatments possible. Today the pace of innovation is amazing, with thousands of U.S. and overseas companies investing billions in their efforts to introduce lucrative breakthrough medical devices.
Unfortunately, medical device failures are not uncommon and many products are determined to be unsafe after lives are lost and patients suffer severe injuries or irreversible health damage. Our Belleville, Illinois, legal team is prepared to investigate medical device failures that have serious consequences and take action for victims and surviving family members.
When you consent to an innovative surgical procedure, the implanting of a medical device or another form of treatment, you should be able to trust in the safety of the device, prescription drugs and other medical products involved. There have been many cases (some highly publicized and others much less so) of medical devices having to be recalled for design defects and other safety shortcomings.
Medical Device Manufacturers Must Be Accountable to Consumers
With a strong background in medical malpractice, other personal injury actions and wrongful death litigation, our attorneys are prepared to evaluate your potential case involving a:
- Defective Medtronic insulin pump responsible for a life-threatening or fatal overdose or under-dose of insulin
- Defective pacemaker, joint implant, pain pump or other medical device
- Dangerous prescription drug that has unintended adverse effects
We size up potential products liability cases thoroughly and pursue those we adamantly believe in. Our Belleville medical device defects lawyers care about improving public safety as well as obtaining justice for victims of others’ negligence, and we have won favorable results in many cases against wealthy, powerful corporations.
We recognize that you may be seeking answers as well as fair financial compensation for damage done to you by a defective medical device. To discuss what happened to you or a family member and benefit from compassionate legal insight and guidance, please call and request a legal consultation today.
