Providing Legal Protection After A Medical Device Malfunctions
We represent clients in litigation regarding complications arising from stents, transvaginal mesh, hip and knee replacements and other implanted devices. Our attorneys protect our clients’ rights in medical malpractice claims involving:
- Patients unfit for surgical implants: It is malpractice for a doctor to recommend hip replacement, knee implants or any other type of implant for patients who are not good fits for these surgical procedures. Doctors should know which patients are not likely to take well to the procedure and which patients might not benefit from the procedures. Many patients could benefit from rest and physical therapy instead of such an invasive procedure.
- Surgical errors: Even when patients are a good match for a procedure of this kind, errors occur when implanting these devices as they can in any other surgical procedure.
- Faulty implant devices: In some cases, the implant devices themselves are faulty. A common example of this is the metallosis that occurs when microscopic metal shards from hip or knee implants get into the bloodstream and cause serious infections with the probability of revision surgery and other problems.
We take on all types of implant claims. With decades of legal experience and an M.D. represented on our legal team, we have the knowledge to assess our clients’ situations accurately and determine when a viable claim exists. We also use our knowledge in the courtroom to help our clients receive the full compensation awards available under the law.
